oil extractor question
i just purchased a new oil extractor and i want to remove a small amount of oil from my jetski. i want to get my oil level right because i think they over filled it. ive never used one of these things before what is the best way to do this? also if i pull to much out would it be safe to pour some of what i pulled out back in? i only have 2 hours on the machine so the oil is still new. any help would be much appreciated!

first run the engine either on the hose or at the lake for 10-15 minutes. pull it out or on the trailer make sure the ski is sitting perfectly level - i mean completely level and check the dipstick before u start sucking any oil out. if it has more than supposed to, start pump a little bit at a time.
that or wait until 10hrs and then just do the oil change. 4.3 qts with the filter on and 5.3 with the filter off.
keep us posted.

the best way to have it level is to put it in the water, but its a pain to do any work like that, especially an oil change !
