Ultra oil filter removal
To replace the oil filter on the Ultra 250 the intercooler has to be removed first. In order to remove the intercooler the engine mounting bolts have to be loosened and the engine shifted forward. A special tool is required for this and is available only from Kawi for the modest sum of $213.12. Once the oil filter is replaced, the old oil sucked out and everything reinstalled, new oil can only be added with a specially made eye dropper to prevent it from spilling out of the semi dry sump. Oil change shop time estimate 3.6 hours @ $80 hr. plus oil & filter.
Of course all of the above is BS, but I bet it opened some eyes !! It's a gloomy, rainy Saturday morning here in FL and I was trying to amuse myself.!
Actually, did anyone who has taken delivery of the 250 notice if it will be difficult to get at the oil filter ??

the oil filter is in the front ,right side of the motor . I just touched it ! same place as a 15-f but even more easy to get out from the new intake manifold. you dont have to remove the intercooler ! shop labor will be one hour plus oil ,filter !

You had me going. So how long to change the belt???????

The belt is an easy one...loosen the engine mounts to slide it forward and a pair of hamster paws should be able to get at the belt with little fuss. Of course if you don't want to mess with the mounts, fiberglass cuts easily with a hack saw !
I wonder how much of a problem a "squealing" belt will be if it gets wet ??

I have seen a couple posts here and there of people complaining about the difficulty in oil changes on the 250. I guess some did not see your disclaimer at the bottom...

No matter how ridiculous the statement might be, there will always be someone who will believe it. Sort of scary isn't it? Maybe I'll make another post saying the Ultra will do 95 mph with just a change of spark plugs, then put a "disclaimer" in RED CAPITAL letters right under it.....I still bet there will be someone who would believe it !!!!

This thread needs to be swept under the rug, I can see how some will believe the joke as the truth and pass it on as fact.
