After years of changing oil in my FJR1300AE, I did not spill a drop of oil using this new funnel. If you have an AE model you know what I mean, pieces of the electric clutch system hang out over the oil fill port making it nearly inpossible to fill easily. This snakey nossled funnel gets in under all this stuff and works great. For the first time I had no mess while filling it with oil, even using a gallon container of oil. This is a "must have" for anyone with an AE.
