Default Handy gadget

I did an oil change on the GSX-8S and found an annoyance. The clutch is so close to the filler plug that a funnel won't stay in place.

I thought: "why doesn't anyone make a screw-in funnel that matches the thread of the filler plug?"

Apparently, they do:

It fits the SV but I can't get at my GSX since it sits behind the SV, the filler plug is the same. (99.9% sure!) It's a 3D printed device with an air bleed hole (to stop burping?), isn't technology wonderful? If you're wondering the filler plug thread is M20x1.5.

Thats actually pretty cool.

It doesnt say what plastic its using as some are more oil resistant than others, but an interesting idea if only I knew where a 3D printer was...
