almost dismantled 500EFI to change fluids... yikes.

wow, sure takes a bit of work to change out all of the fluids on the 500EFI. took the skid plate off to help with changing out the engine oil/filter and the trans/rear diff oils. then had to take off the front bumper/winch to change out the front diff oil. it was the fill plug on the front diff that i couldn't get at without removing the bumper/winch.

i put two litres in the oil bag and it was still a bit low. i spoke to the dealer when i purchased another litre of oil and the guy says, ya we never drain out the crank oil so that's why you were low. why would i change the oil and leave a cup of dirty oil in the engine? wonder how many dealers do the quick change?

anyway, feels good to have all the oils clean. next is the air filter, plug, breather and fuel filter...
