Ok, long ago a I had my oil changed with the initial 500 mile service and the retard at the shop tightend the f**k out of the plug. Hence I go to change it myself and a stripped pan occurs. I'm over that now and I had it repaired, there is a very slow drip now but nothing serious. (might be trading it in so need to fix) I now have a new pan and gasket, my only question is with removing the exhaust. I obviously have to take the fairings off, but can i get around taking the fan off or is it simple enought to take off.......it looks like it my get in the way. Oh 2003 GSXR 600.
