One thing though. That faq states:
"Test for oil pressure using the indicating bolt on the right hand side of the engine block. (See owners manual.)"
Unfortunately, I don't have any manual. Can you add any clarification? I don't want to be changing the oil if I can't check the oil pressure.....

I havent heard talk of oil pressure problems, knock on wood. As long as you keep your filter changed frequently, and dont over rev for a long period of time you should be OK.
Anyone else heard of oil pressure problems?

At least that's how I figure it, but I have been known to make stuff up from time to time, so don't take my word for it!

When I drain my oil, I remove the hose that takes the oil from the oil tank to the inner clutch cover (at the clutch cover end). It's not required, but it just lets you get an extra 50ml or so of dirty oil out of the engine.
Simply undo the bolt (8mm T bar) and drain the oil that gets stuck in that hose. before you refit the hose, ensure the 'o' ring is still in position.

They do that, especially when new. Do watch out for large pieces of steel, as opposed to the aluminum clutch shavings that get deposited in the oil filter.
Consider a magnetic drain plug to catch the steel stuff.
My magnetic drain plug is always covered with a steel "sludge" of tiny particles every time I change the oil.
