Victory skid plate oil funnel

The oil drain access location on the victory skids is great for getting access to the drain plug while keeping the pan safe, but pretty much guarantees an oil slick on the top side of your plate as oil starts coming out of the pan while you are backing out the plug. I made a small adapter that sits on top of the skid plate and just acts as a funnel to keep oil from spilling over the edges while you loosen the bolt.
This should be 3d printed out of TPU. TPU is flexible so it won't damage the pan should it get rammed up into it and it's resistant to oils and gas.
The STL file is attached, enjoy!

That's clever! Victory should pay you for the design and include one free with every order.


(For my RCI skid I installed a Fumoto valve and have attached a short length of hose cut to end flush at the bottom of the skid.)

I looked at a fumoto mod but I do a crap ton of 3d printing so that was my hammer to this nail.

I really like your idea and I am serious about Victory "buying" it off of you. Maybe give you some more 4Runner goodies as payment for the idea.

I fit a Stahlbus drain plug last oil change (July) before I fitted on the Victory plate (February), haven't done an oil change yet but should be a lot easier.

The Stahlbus has a 10" silicone hose with a mechanism that attaches to the Stahlbus unit, twist it on and the oil comes pouring out through the hose.

Well, since you are a self admitted Socialist, you should just send those units you made free of charge for us less fortunate folks, right ?

I've been lucky enough to find myself in a spot that I am able to give back so If you want one and don't have access to a printer, just let me put a few miles on this one to make sure it holds up and I'll be happy to shoot one your way.
