Re: Complete Fluid Change

autozone has a great measuring funnel with a hose. I think I paid like 4 bucks for it.

Hand Pump.
AMSOIL - AMSOIL Hand Pump For Bottles
I tried to find one at autozone.com but couldnt. Autozone does carry them and they are like 8 or 10 bucks. and they fit quart or gallon bottles. Good Luck.. KC.

Re: Complete Fluid Change

Does that pump work good for putting oil in through the dipstick tube for an oil change?
It took me a long time to get two quarts down the dipstick tube because it is so close to horizontal and the oil kept backing up the funnel. I was thinking of lifting the front of the RZR next time to increase the angle. Any tips?

Re: Complete Fluid Change

Yeah, you could do that with it. I didnt, I pumped it through the fill hole but I know that the little cone end on the hose will fit in the dipstick tube if you want to do that. KC.

Fill hole? Where is that? The service manual says to fill it through the dipstick tube...
Thanks!

Only Engine Oil. Not trans or transfer or diffs. Or you can fill the engine through the breather hose on the valve cover. KC.

Re: Complete Fluid Change

Changing all of them is not bad at all as long as you have a tube on the end of your funnel. I just have a regular funnel and some clear tubing from Home Depot. The plugs that have the most hassle are the gearcase plugs through the skid plate but a 3/8" extender bar 6" or 10" makes it fairly reasonable. Just fill till the fluid pours out of the respective hole.

Both my Gearcase chambers and my front diff were below recommend spec from the factory, only my rear diff had enough fluid.
