how do you perform an oil change on honda r12x step by step?

Buy a Tempo/Mueller oil sucker [6 quart] from West Marine. Suck all of the oil from the front dipstick hole. Tilt engine rearward and then suck all all the oil you can from the rear oil port just beneath the turbo. Don't drop the rear cap or the o ring. Put back in 4.5 quarts of Shell Rotella T6 oil from WalMart regardless of how much you pull out. Change the oil filter with a new Honda OEM filter.

You also want to warm up the engine per the manual. For 2 reasons I believe: circulate the dirty oil and getting it warm to flow (suck out) easier or at all.
