A little help for the new kid??
Obviously im new to the forum I just purchased a 2012 VXR (amazing) I am looking for a how to on changing the oil. the dealer said come back at 20 hours and wants $150 to change the oil. Im at 12 hours and I think I can do it my self I just need to know how to get the oil out.. I know you pump it, but from where the service guy told me from the filler cap on top of the motor but I dont see how that can work you cant get any oil out from there, or can you?? is there a special pump you have to buy?? any help would be greatly appreciated Thanks

I got one on ebay. You pump it out of the dipstick hole.

Welcome for GH. Oil chnages are pretty easy. You will need an oil extractor to do the job, I personally bought the HT Moto oil extractor from pwcperformance.com I recommend consulting the VXR service manual which has the recommended maintenance schedule. This will give you a better idea of the first 10 hours service on your new ski.

Thanks for the reply. How much oil should I be able to get out from the dip stick?? and also to change the filter or not to change the filter? I already got it might as well??

I think it's about 4 quarts and if you have the filter you may as well change it too. It can't hurt.
