    MSX 150 Official Oil Level/Change Thread

    I looked and looked and what I found is stuff that might be bogus since Polaris got it all wrong to begin with. I have smoked 5 MAP sensores and had my ECU flashed twice because I cannot get a accurate procedure to filling the Weber motor with the proper amount of oil and how to properly ready it.

    Fill oil to minimum level on dipstick:
    1.) It seems I always pump way more out than I put back in.
    2.) Right now, I am putting 2qts. in after change and raise level slowly. Should it be more, should it be less?

    Read Dipstick:
    1.) Motor cold or motor warm?
    2.) How long can I wait to take reading. 30 seconds or less?
    3.) Dipstick screwed in or just stick in fill hole w/o threading and then read dipstick?

    hi,put oil in,
    run for around 30 seconds from cold,
    pull dipstick,wipe,insert do not screw,
    the oil should be no more than 1cm on the stick,
    even barely touching the stick from cold is ok,
    it will rise to about a third on the stick at running temperature,
