Scooter Model(s): Lance Havana Classic
I'm a little freaked out right now. I bought a Lance Havana Classic scooter a couple of months ago. I have just over 1000 miles and have conducted two oil changes. I searched online how to change engine oil in a Chinese scooter, and read an article instructing to drain the oil from the Strainer Cover. The article mentioned nothing of the Oil Drain Plug. I downloaded the maintenance manual for my bike in order to become better acquainted with it...and it instructs to drain the oil from the Oil Drain Plug. Could I have harmed the bike?? I can't change the oil again until at least tomorrow night, as I have to use the bike tomorrow morning for work. What should I do???

It doesn't matter what hole it comes out of. I'm guessing its like my Honda. The hole with the strainer is a little higher that the other hole. So when draining the lower hole will more of the oil out.
