  • Oil change with a siphon pump?

    So this may be a strange question but as anyone tried to change their oil with a siphon pump? I am looking for one to suck out the gas in my boat as its getting taken back to the factory for some work and they would like as much of the gas out as possible. I came across one that hast tubes for this process but in the video the guy talks about a skinny hose that can be use to remove oil via the dipstick. I know that the the bolt on the underneath side of the RS can be a pain and a little difficult due to it being an odd size. Just wondered if anyone has tried this method.

    You would not get all the old oil out. There are 2 screws that have to be removed to change the oil because there are 2 oil holding tanks.

      Tropicalrs is correct. Using a hand pump on a boat works because it goes into the oil pan to get to the oil, even then it isn't getting all of the oil out. Our bike don't work like that. As far as removing fuel from the boat or any other piece of equipment I use an old 12v electric inline fuel pump from an old ford pickup truck. I have on occasion used it to suck out oil from a small engine that had the drain in an inconvenient location and it worked just fine.

        17mm stubby box end wrench for front bolt 17mm socket on 3/8 in drive for rear bolt. Could not be any simpler or easier to change oil.
