Oil changing system

Has anyone tried the Scavenger total oil change system? Results would be apprciated. it looks like it would be a very complete changeover. Does anyone also know if thers is something similar but less expensive out there. Seems like $100 is a little expensive for a metal puck and a piece of clear tubing, thanks.

Speaking only for myself, running the engine untill there is no more oil in it to get out an extra 1/2 qt and what can happen to bearings and lifters with no oil to luricate them doesn't seem right, the video shows a hose in a qt of oil and it sucks it in the engine untill it's all gone, and watching the oil and air drain out the discharge hose leads me to think the bearings and lifters are running dry. why not just change the oil and filter a 1,000 sooner, I do mine at 3,000 miles seems to be keeping clean as can be, carbon is a by product of buring gas under compression, and that is what turns oil dark / black, carbon scratches bearings, if the oil is black, change it sooner.

I have to agree with you. I personaly have greater concerns that a half quart of oil left in the system. Oil changes are easy stuff so when it gets dirty I change it. Usually between 4-5k is when it starts getting a little dark. For me that is about 3 months oraybe 4 times a year so it's not a big deal.

90% of all statistics are made up.

This system has been previously discussed in this forum . I did a search for it but couldn't find the topic .
It's your money and they want it !
IMO , it's a waste of money .

i did the search too and came up short

someone suggested cutting the end of an old filter off, taping the end to a gallon size zip lock and running the motor till you see clean oil empting into the bag...
i assume you want to add oil to the bike as its dumping into the waste bag
havent heard of anyone trying this as it was only suggested cause it was a cheap way to extract every bit of old from the system
