2019 RZR High Lifter oil overfill after oil filter change

Changed the oil and filter for the first time using the polaris oil change kit that includes 2 qts plus a little oil bottle and when I measure the oil with the dipstick,it shows like one inch overfill.
Is this normal?
Should I take some oil out?
Thanks

Normally, these engines only take 1.5 quarts.

You drained the transmission fluid and not the engine. So when you put in new oil it has 2x as much as it should. Fairly common mistake.

Did you run it to circulate the oil and fill up the filter, then check it?

One inch high on the dipstick is not twice the oil.

Yes I did run it
The oil filter is at an angle so it would not retain much oil
Thanks

I don't know where you guys are getting those numbers, but it's not the owner's manual. Did you check your owner's manual?

According to the 2019 XP1000 HighLifter owner's manual (available on Polaris website) and the XP1000 shop manual I have access to, engine oil capacity is 2.5 quarts.

The XP oil change kit includes 2.5 quarts of oil.

Most likely scenario is that you didn't fully drain it, would be my guess. If you want to drain a bit, it's up to you. I don't think I'd bother unless it was coming out the breather tube.

1" above the full mark is double the oil, I had two friends do this.


BTW - you don't need run the engine to "circulate" before checking. Oil is checked by height in the the oil pan, the filter holds no oil after shutdown, and all the oil will drain back to the pan.

Once the filter is full, it stays full. Doesn't run back thru the pump to the pan. Notice when you took the filter off to change it, it was full of oil and leaked all over the place?

Ah no, on a 1k or XPT engine it most certainly does drain back. Very little oil stay in the filter.

Well, Polaris instructions for oil change, per shop manual, are to add 2.5 quarts specified oil, run engine for 30 seconds, shut down, wait 15 seconds then check oil level.

If that isn't circulating it to fill the filter, I don't know what is. It's the same as my truck.

I'm not saying the OP didn't accidentally pull the wrong drain plug; he should pull the transmission fill port and check service level just to be sure. But 5 quarts in the crankcase instead of 2.5 quarts is going to be way more than one inch overfill on the dipstick. That crankcase ain't that big.

Oh, and BTW, 2.75 quarts is the spec for the XPT. 2.5 quarts for the XP1000. Per the owner's manuals.
