    changing oil filter on FX SHO

    Anyone have good tips or link to video or method to pull the oil filter out of an FX SHO? It looks like oil will run down the side of the engine into the bottom of the wave runner. Maybe place a rag in the bottom or wrap the filter with a plastic sandwich bag?

    Yep, just put a rag underneath to catch the oil. I use one of the filter tools you put on a ratchet...found at any auto parts store. Don't forget to rub some oil on the gasket on the new filter, or it will be a bitch to get off next time. Also, be careful of the little tabs that stick out from the gasket between the exhaust manifold & header. They are razor sharp & will give you a nasty cut.

    +1 on all of that. I have one of those socket style filter wrenches that attaches to a ratchet. Its very good, but it took a while to find because the Yamaha filter isn't a very common size. NAPA autoparts ended up having the right size.

    I wrap it in a grocery store plastic bag when I pull it off.

    And if you are interested there is a NAPA branded filter that is the same as the Yamaha OEM for a fraction of the price. I also use ATV oil with same manufacturer specs as Yamalube. I have to change about every three months easy in the summer though so that saves me a lot of money in the course of a year.

    There is some very useful information in this thread... http://www.greenhulk.net/forums/show...ght=oil+change

    And if you do a search "oil change" you will find all sorts of helpful info.

    NAPA Gold 1348

    I forgot too...If you tilt the ski using a jack I believe toward the port side then you will get almost all of the oil out. Probably a full quart over what you would get if the ski is level.

    I keep one of the boxes of all the parts I use for future reference. NAPA filter is equivalent to Yami OEM and there are different numbers on the box. By the barcode: 69j-13440-01; On the bottom: 115010-600; Also on the bottom 989262-2510

    That's all I got. For SHOs you have to use oil for wet clutches which deletes a additive making the oil too slippery but is used in most motor applications I believe. Don't recall the specification but can find it later.

    I don't want to hijack this guys thread.

    I had a hard time getting the right size filter wrench, they kept slipping when trying to remove the filter. So I started using K&N oil filters with the nut on them.
