Fumoto QuickValve oil drain valves

I know these have been mentioned a few times in the past, but I dont recall seeing a specific thread on them.

The Fumoto Quick Valve is a small ball valve which replaces the sump drain plug and allows a very convenient method of draining the oil.
Primarily made for cars I think, but easily fitted to all the Bonnie derivatives without much problem.

Product info here.........

http://www.quickoildrainvalve.com/




The correct items for our bikes are the Qwik Valve F-106 Oil Drain Valve and the ADP-106 Adaptor.
The short adaptor just acts as a spacer between the valve and the sump.
Fitment requires the disconnection of the flex oil hose and its connector to allow the valve to be screwed in, and also a little playing about with various sealing washer thicknesses so that the valve ends up placed in the most convenient position for ease of access and also sufficient protection.

Here it is fitted on my Scrambler.....

Easy to get at the small valve actuating lever and all still remains above the level of the frame rails.
(Ive since blanked the open drain line with a small self-tapping screw just to keep the dirt out)



I realise that there are those who would no doubt question the necessity for such a thing, but for ease of draining, avoidance of mess, and (importantly) reducing the risk of stripped threads, then these things are worth considering.

Worked for me!!

is it a secure fit on the valve?

its a good idea.. but "what if" it opens itselfe...

maybe a lockwire to be safe?


EDIT: just noticed the spring under and the slot that it fits in... but still

For peace of mind the little lever can be easily lock-wired, or there is even a locking clip available as an extra if so required.

To be honest tho, with the position that the valve is in, the fact that the operation of opening it requires the spring-loaded lever to be lifted and turned at the same time, and with the open end blanked, there can't be much chance of that "what-if" situation occuring I recon.

I have one of them, the spacer, and the extra security clip in a box ready for fitment on my next oil change. Can't Wait...

Stripped threads are always something I worry about...seems I don't know my own strength or I'm too lazy to use a torque wrench in tight spots. This is a great way to allay those fears.

ventura: you are probably right this is a safe mod...
and the more i think of the mess i make when i change the oil the more its sounds like a good idea

perfect for fitting a hose to it and into the container that you have waste oil in..

good stuff !

Piston engine aircraft have been using those for years, usually without safety wire!

No way the valve can open on its own, it's strongly spring loaded and the lever rests inside a notch, but there's a further security device available in the shape of a "safety clip" type LC-10 if worried.

Okay I just went to the website.

There is no F-106 listed. There is no ADP-106 listed.

There is an EZ-106 and an EZ-106G.

There is an A-106 and an AL-106.

There is a safety clip listed.

I did a search there for "106".
