    Question Oil Change Process

    I plan on buying an Oil Boy from Green Hulk so I can start changing my own oil in the ski, 2009 RXT iS. Any one know what the "step by step" process is? I hear, that you have to start and stop the engine while pumping the oil out? A guide from start to finish would be really nice to have. Thanks.

    No... you will easily feel the tube hit the bottom... then just pull it up about an 1/8"

    Okay, I think I have it now. Stick the suction tube in easly until I feel it hit bottom, pull the tube back out 1/8" of an inch, and mark the tube there. Thank you bigdaddy. I believe I can get this done!
