    Travel Funnel

    For some reason I think I remember seeing an "L" shaped funnel that rolls up for storage when on the road. Anyone know where something like this may be found? I have found the simple coned shaped ones but I wonder how well that works on the K1200GT.
    Thanks,
    Jeff

    New Pig corporation sells what is a ruber coated peice of lead that can be shaped as needed. I also like to use the waxed paper cone shaped cups that are used on the big drinking water/Gatoraide coolers.

    Tractorsupply sells a flexible spout that fits oil bottles. Rolled up in a paper towel, it fits neatly under the seat.

    A simple thing I have come to use that is always easily found and works ever so well for my K RS

    A simple 20oz or so water from nearly any brand. This is what I do at home or on the road

    If you need to add oil on the road, stop, buy a water and drink it. Then take your knife or whatever and cut a hole in the side of the bottle near the bottom about the size of a silver dollar.

    Remove your oil filler cap, screw the bottle in the hole. Almost a perfect fit. Twist so the hole you cut is facing up. Add oil through the hole you cut. The bottle fits in the oil hole tight enough it is self supporting. Once finished tip the bottle up so last of the oil drains in. Remove it and throw away/recycle it.

    I actually prefer this at home as the clean up is a lot easier than dealing will a dripping funnel.

    Hope this helps ya

    Stop by a Honda shop. They have a 3 pack of "Fast Funnel" for about $2.
