Yea, if only the darn Honda mechanic had used a torque wrench it never would have happened.
Amsoil have new containers which are bags where you just cut the tip off and you can squeeze the whole thing into the diff, this is what I used and didn't have to use a pump. Super easy especially when there's not much room to fill the diff.

Ask for the bag type next time you pick some up.

I was tempted by that last time I ordered. But, will it work in the tight spaces we have on the S2k?

Yup! works perfect, it took less than a minute to fill the diff. I just cut the tip off and then squeezed the bag almost to empty and let the extra drain out of the diff.

I had about 1/8th left of the bag of fluid.
