oil change lifesaver - Stahlbus drain valve kit

save the mess... install the quick drain system. quarter turn, never spill again. and other than perhaps a filter wrench, have tool-free oil changes. plugs available for cars, trucks, bikes, ATVs, watercraft, boats, etc. if you can drain the oil, odds are, there's a kit that fits your vehicle.

Stahlbus Oil Drain Valve

The Stahlbus Oil Drain Valve replaces the existing drain plug and provides a faster, safer, and cleaner way of performing oil changes. Once the valve is installed, oil changes can be performed without tools, without risk of burns from hot oil, and without the need to replace the drain plug washer - no more risk of ham-fisted over-tightening. Simple operation: unscrew the cap by hand, and insert the hose attachment (quarter-turn bayonet joint) to start the oil drain. Optional safety-wire cap available.

The advantages at a glance:

Easy handling due to quick release cap/hose connect
Drain valve can not be lost
Minimized risk of burns from hot oil

 Seal/washer change is not necessary

 Oil pan thread is spared

 Double outlet protection (protective cap and valve)

 Connection to vacuum possible

 Optimal application for discharge sampling or trapping

 Change oil without tools
Optional predrilled cap for safety wire - race-org approved

Be sure to verify your drain bolt size and thread pitch before purchasing... if it's not listed, it's not available.

More Stahlbus products coming soon - including dry break systems (brake systems), bleeder valves, and other Stahlbus accessories. I'm offering free shipping on all orders of Stahlbus products through the month of April, so get yours while the shipping is free!!

here's stahlbus' application database... i can't speak to its accuracy, but the few i have seen are dead on.

An idea that could make this really appealing to racers, as they change oil often; make it so that both the cap and valve assembly each have a drilled tab that can be safety-wired so that this part is usable and legal on race bikes.

And if you decide to use that idea, I wouldn't refuse if you decided to send me one free for the great idea.

i'll verify the legality of the kit with the chief tech inspector with the CMRA and let you know. if it's legal there, i'd be willing to be it's legal at the other big orgs as well.

i'll post back once i hear... but from what i understand AS OF NOW, it is legal. but keep an eye out for a definitive answer in regards to the CMRA.

All I know is that it's not legal with CCS or WERA, as you have to have the drain bolt safety-wired.

Yea, I'm getting that feeling from Linz (CMRA). I'll talk with stahlbus and see about a predefined tab on the drain plug itself. I'll let y'all know.
