    popped my oil change cherry

    I love changing the oil in these compared to the cars. No lying on the ground under a hot car. No spilling oil all over myself and the driveway and then running to throw some absorbent on the spill. No burning my hand on the hot oil plug.

    So easy and no mess!

    Oil shot all over my open seat compartment while i was changing the oil for the first time. The plastic tube that was draining the oil came out because i was apparently not holding it in place steady enough.

    Look under the How-To section on the homepage it has a section for changing oil. It's an Oil Suction Pump. They should be available at a local dealer along with the filters and oil.

    I got a hand pump evacuator from west marine for like $30. It works awsome, you don't have to pump like crazy either. It has about a 6 quart plastic tank with a pump and all the nescesary tubing.

    Changing the oil is no problem. Changing the filter is another story all together! Novices will invariably crack the filter cap when tightening it back on or not properly align the -O- ring. Either one of these mistakes will cause a major oil leak when you go to run the engine. The cap will most likely crack because BRP in their infinite wisdom made it out of PLASTIC instead of metal. Morons! You can now buy an aluminum cap from your Sea Doo dealer. This is money well spent. Also, I have never seen a system where you cannot drain all of the oil out of the engine, but this is the way it was designed. Another brilliant engineering feat!

    This is what I bought

    on 05 models the cap is metal and I have no leaks after replacing the filters with the oil. If any of the o-rings leaked I'd just make another one so no biggie.
