    3 questions

    1.Where is the oil filter located on the RXP-X?
    2.How do you take the white cover off the motor?
    3.Is the oil filter unfder the white cover on the top of the motor?
    4.When you change the oil filter and take off the oil filter cap,do you just get something to clamp and pull up or does it unscrew off?

    The filter is located near the back of the engine, underneath the hex bolted cover. It almost looks like a small cylinder mounted to the back of the engin.e

    THe oil filter on the RXP or RXPX is right at the back end of the motor.

    YOu will see a round cap with a torx bolt holding the cap on.

    Get a torx socket (I forget which size, I think #10), and unscrew the bolt.

    Then you will need to gently pry the cap of. Be careful as there is an oring at the top of the cover, dont stick the screwdriver too far in. Work your way around the edges, it will come off.

    The filter is a cartridge. Pull the cap off and the filter is just below the cap. It comes right our by hand.

    Dont use synthetic oil with friction modifiers and your good to go.


    Another tip, you will need something to suck out the oil with, dont change the oil cold, best if you run the ski on the water and then do it right after.

    I use an oil boy vacuum pump thru the dipstick.

    As you are sucking out the oil, once you think you got it all out, you actually did not. push the throttle wide open and hold it and crank the engine (It will NOT START) for about 5-10 seconds, suck out more oil and repeat several times. You will be luck to get out about 2/3 of the oil.

    I get two jugs of equal capacity. Drain all the oil into one of them. Then measure up the container and match the fresh oil at the same level as the old oil. Then you know you put in the same amount as came out.

    to take off the oil filter cap, you can pry it with a small scredriver. it has 3 o rings, one under the main bolt, one under the rim and then also one deeper inside, the one under the rim is really thin so try not to pinch it when you are prying up the lid.
    just pry a little then try to pull it up with your hand.
    some people have made a lid puller, with a long bolt and a dent inversion hammer tool...
