I was tempted to do that, but it was torqued on so tight I was afraid it would just tear and make a bigger mess. That's usually the way my luck runs on those kinds of things.

I jack mine up w/small block of 1x strip of wood at the back of the jack so gravity will pull the oil out faster. It's all physics!! The taller the bike is in the air the faster it will drain!

I use a front wheel chock to store my bike when I'm not riding it. The bike sits straight up & down while parked in it, no need for the kick stand. Next I use a 3/8 long extension along with a metal cap oil filter wrench from HD. I can get my oil filter off in 15 seconds. This is the only way I've ever changed my filter & oil. I don't know of any other way.
