Change oil filter without draining oil?
Since the R3 has a dry sump, is it possible to change the oil filter without completely draining the oil?
I changed my oil and filter and the filter isn't fitting correctly, when I shut off the bike oil will leak from the filter for a minute or so.
I went with the longer filter (described here in various threads) and I am wondering if it's just not mating up. I need to replace it but I really want to know if all my new oil will drain out...
