When you say it isn't unscrewing, do you mean that you can't break it free, or that it spins, but doesn't thread out? You should be trying to remove the right (throttle side) fitting from the frame/oil tank.

I took it out the first oil change, and there was no signs of anything in there. I don't know how often people are actually cleaning this thing?? :thumbsup:

I have taken it out twice now, and the bike has been ridden for about 65 hours. I plan to take it out at about 80 hours the next time.
