    oil change on 11 300x

    ok so i started my oil change a few days ago but it was taking so long(2.5hrs) i had to stop because i had other things to do. I use a shop vac drain to get the oil out. now i have my tube stuck as far into the dip stick as it can go. Ive already been at it for 30 mins today and still seems like tons of oil is coming. Now i know with the seadoo you don't bottom out, only insert 18.7 inchs. Is there some kind of rule like that with the ultra? am i sucking out to much oil or what. Couldn't find any info online about oil changes on this beast.

    its best to warm the oil this way it should take less than 5mins. you should be able to remove approx 5ltrs.

    if you warmed it theres no way it takes 2.5hrs maybe you need to better oil extractor.

    you cant beat theses suckers widely available anywhere

    Less than 5 mins? Wow that's one hell of an oil extractor..

    I use this garden variety for MCs,PWCs,ATVs,takes 40-45 mins but need to pump more vaccum every 15 mins to keep bubbles /oil moving along..

    But it does the job and like Nj says warm engine..
