STEP 2: Remove the left and right side panels and lower panels. Also remove the skid plate. There will be push pins and a total of four 10mm bolts.
STEP 3: Remove the drain bolt on the oil tank on the right side of the sled. This is a 12mm bolt.
STEP 4: While the oil is draining from the tank, remove the oil filter and the drain plug on the bottom of the motor. This will require a 5mm Allen wrench.
STEP 5: Also, while all the oil is draining, inspect areas that are usually covered by the panels. Since the panels are off it is easier to change out fluids (like the chaincase) and inspect or tighten the chain as well.
STEP 6: Once all oil is drained, install the 5mm Allen drain bolt in the motor and install the new filter (part no.: 5dm-13440-00-00). You also will want to lube the seal on the filter with oil, and make sure the old rubber seal from the old filter is not stuck on the motor.
STEP 7: Install 12mm bolt onto the oil tank.
STEP 8: Add 3.20 liters or 3.38 quarts of Yamalube 0W-30 and insert and tighten the dipstick.
STEP 9: Start the motor and let it run for 2-5 minutes.
STEP 10: Check the oil again.
STEP 11: Install the side and lower panels and skid plate.
