Simple change to the existing rule.
I’d like to see the SP have the same owner FAR 43 appendix A, Paragraph C
Preventative maintenance list as the Private pilot owners as well as AC43-12

It seems dumb that a Private pilot with no maintenance training can perform these tasks on their King Air 200 or TBM but
a Sport Pilot owner can’t change oil on their J-3 or LSA
My understanding is that with Light Sport planes, what sort of maintenance is allowed on ones plane is determined by the manufacturer rather than the FAA - I like that.
