Re: Oil drain plug Allen size

my guess is that if you are going to change your own oil you should own enough allen wrenchs to try a couple to see which one fits. if not you should not own a rzr

I do own enough. But I'm out right now and wanted to buy a socket Allen. Makes it easier. And I don't carry my manual with me.

Give him a break. Maybe he is away from his RZR and wants to buy a socket wrench for that specific purpose.

Re: Oil drain plug Allen size

I just looked in both my owners manual and the service manual-- neither give the Size of the Allen wrench-- just gives torque specs... And I dont remember off hand what size wrench-- sorry...

Re: Oil drain plug Allen size

All I could find was for the 800, not the XP---- 800 uses a 6mm-- my guess is the 900 is also-- but no guarantees ....

Re: Oil drain plug Allen size

Found It ----- 6mm
The 8mm allen wrench on the right is in the tranny drain plug....toward the rear of the machine.

The 6mm allen wrench on the left is in the engine drain plug.

agreed but 9 times out of ten it is the moron factor.

how many times has someone asked "hey fellers, My RZR is out in the driveway. How tall is it? Will it fit in my garage?

This politically correct approach to answering needs a review.

Some days i just want to type back in my best southern accent "How the hell do I know what you garage looks like and maybe give us fellers a clue what RZR ya' all got." Yer sister aint home yet?

We used to just reply "RTFM".

Substitute "FRIENDLY" when necessary.

Wouldn't it have been easier if someone would have just put..."6mm" or not reply at all.?
