Ya, just let it drain on its side stand until there isn't a constant stream anymore, then stand it up straight (I'd stand beside it so you can see when its done), it'll start a constant stream again, then just wait until its finished.

EDIT: BTW, its definitely worth getting a stand though. It makes a lot of maintenance easier, especially cleaning the chain.

Also, you should change the aluminum crush gasket every oil change, but if you don't then make sure you check the drain plug after going for a ride to make sure it doesn't leak. You can get the gaskets at any dealer and usually Napa, Autozone and other auto stores. I always pick up 10 at a time so I always have some on hand. They're like $0.50 a piece.

No doubt, gotta change the drain plug gasket and make sure the old filter's gasket comes off as well!!
