I realize I'm a newcomer to this site but it seems to me that we could all benefit from a sticky where people can put their "How To's" they've been generous enough to post. I don't know how it works but imagine creating a sticky is something the moderators do. Again, I don't know (yes, my ignorance is impressive), but I imagine "how to" posts can then be moved into the new sticky. That way, all of us DIY'ers know exactly where to go to try to find help when changing the oil, putting in HIDs, adding risers or Heli-bars, adding a side car, etc. Okay, maybe not a side car, but you get the idea. I do know (shocking) that there's a search feature but, let's be honest, it leaves something to be desired. Anyway, just a thought; I'm sure not an original one but one worth putting out there.
I'm off to buy some oil and a filter and to give my first oil change on the VFR a shot. Wish me luck. I've already seen some helpful advice here but will search for some more before I jump in.
