Oil change tip
I was draining my oil today to get ready to swap out my old-style clutch for the new gen-3. I wanted it as dry as possible so less oil would dump out when I remove the oil pump, so I tried a tip 305coco gave me. After you suck out as much as possible & remove the oil filter, unplug the coils & crank the motor over a few times with a container under the hole where the filter goes. My drill pump always gets out a little over 3-1/2qts, & I got an extra 1/3qt with this method. I'll be doing this from now on so there's less dirty oil left in the motor when I do routine changes.

Thats a pretty cool tip......was wondering how to get the .75 of a qt out of the motor.

I get similar results by simply cranking the motor (after the sump has been sucked dry) with the throttle open. It won't start and seems to push another half quart of oil into the sump.

Always done it this way. Dealer gave me the tip.

Cool tip, thanks. Cranking the motor won't cause any damage, right?
