This weeks service tip brings up oil changes. For Polaris ATV’s it is recommended that the oil be changed every 50 hours. The oil change procedure is a straight forward and rather simple process.
For single cylinder ATV’s with an oil reservoir, you simply drain the oil reservoir, remove the old filter and drain the crankcase. To drain the crankcase you need a 6mm Allen wrench. Just with any oil change remember to change your copper crush washers.
For twin cylinder ATV’s simply drain the crankcase and remove the old filter. That is it, very simple.
Always fill the oil filter with oil on reassembly to ensure proper oil upon start up.
All Polaris ATV’s minus 550,570,850 and 900 models will all used just under 2 quarts of oil.
