650X Questions

Is there an aftermarket vendor for the Rotax oil filters? Is there an online oil change FAQ somewhere. I have tried adv searches, but they time out.

I heard that k&n is finallly making an oil filter.
I have also succesfully completed my first oil change on my bike after much unfound help on the internet.

Instructions, as described by sonymalc, I hold no liability.

1. Bike at operating temp.
2. Drain crankcase by pulling out drain plug.
3. Open oil filler cap/dipstick under seat.
4. Take a piece of hose and put it on the barb of the bleeder screw/oil tank drain.
5. Open oil tank drain screw using open end wrench. (oil will drain out slowly through hose.)
6. Pull off oil filter housing (3 bolts, no spring or anything behind plate,
7. Replace oil filter housing o-ring and oil filter and reassemble.
8. Clean drain plug for crankcase, install new crush washer seal and reinsert drain plug.
9. Close oil tank drain screw.
10. Fill Oil tank full of oil and bump motor over a couple of times. (I was able to get about 1qt of oil into tank. Before....
11. Very cautiously and nerviously , start engine. Listen to horable noise and oil warning light stay on for a couple of seconds and watch light go off and nosie to go away and engine run and sound ok. Shut engine off.
12. Continue to fill oil tank till all oil is in engine and tank is full on the dipstick. (Oil level check, Bike warm, Bike vertical off kickstand and screw oil dipstick all the way in and pull back out to check fullness.)
13. I used about 2.6 qts of oil. Bike is still running about 20,000 miles later.

Good luck, It really isnt that bad once you do it.

Did my first oil change on my xcountry today following these instructions, all went smoothly. Oh, and the bike took almost 2L of oil without any engine bumping which was nice as i wasnt looking forward to hearing the horrible noise.
At 2800km the oil looked like black metallic paint. I put in castrol gtx, hopefully no clutch slippage issues to be had this weekend!

I buy the Hi flo filters for my X from a local Yamaha/Kawi dealer for $5 each.
I'll run out to the shed and get the number for you.

Did you check the Index thread??

http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=296374

I just added the procedure you listed to the index thread too.

Oh and if you bother to look at the owner's manual, it's in there too .. but who ever looks at that manual.
