What year did BRP switch to metal oil filter caps?
My boats are 2006, and I just went and checked and (from what I can tell by tapping on them) the oil filter caps are metal. Anyone know when they made the switch from plastic to the metal ones?
Also, I noticed that the oil filter cap wasn't completely round. One side is partially flat, and I can see part of the O-ring exposed. Normal?

plastic covers should be replaced with the newer metal style. They had an issue with leaking. They also take the newer O-rings.
The complete newer style caps ( with bolt) self eject from the housing when you loosen the bolt. well worth the upgrade cost on that point alone.
