If you are looking at the nut/plug/bolt (whatever it is) you have to turn counter clockwise; against the normal direction of a clock).
So, if you want to unscrew the oil plug (underside engine): lying on your back looking/eyeing against the underside you turn the wrench against the clock.

Good luck, if something is not clear just ask me!

Ciao,

Frank

Sorry, 1 thing: be sure you pick the right plug!
There are more than 1 (you need the plug which is in the middle of the engine, on the rear side of the crankcase ... the big one).

And it has a 10mm hex socket head. Make sure your key is a good fit in the socket, they have a nasty habit of rounding out.

for what your doing just think Lefty Loosy - Righty Tighty when undoing or tightening things up, sounds silly but lying on the ground working underneath a bike or car, it is easy to get confused, well me anyway... :truck:

Also if you don't have one, well worth investing a in Torque Wrench.

Hope this helps
