I dident see replace the crush washer after each oil change might be a good idea to add it. I always put a new one in on the underbelly drain plug. They cost like 10 cents just an extra precaution. And also dont over tighten those bolts they all strip easy.

I try really hard to give the right info when you need it but id rather make people laugh. Their aint enough laughter in this world.

According to the CFM Ebay Store:

Our oil tank holds 10% more oil than any other aftermarket oil tank. It holds 1.25 more quarts than your stock oil tank.

I don't replace the crush washer very often, in fact I don't recall ever changing it when it wasn't leaking. That said, it's certainly not a bad idea for as cheap as they are and should make it less likely to over-tighten the drain plug.

Photobucket is trash now, use something else.

Ok so I've decided to change my oil. But first I was curious as to the engine oil level first as it was done by the dealer the first time (at 10 hours). So as per the manual I warmed 'er up for a good 4 minutes and shut 'er off. Then I put 'er on level ground and checked the oil in the tank. When I opened the cap a ton of oil was leaking out of the filler cap and oozing down the side of the tank. Assuming the manual is right, the oil level should be between the F and E, right? I'm I missing something here or did the dealer screw me and overfill it?

Change the oil filter drain the tank and then undo the under belly plug open the crankcase plug so it will ooze out faster then replace everything. Add one quart to the tank and add one to the crankcase. Your done. Start it up. Rev it a little shut it off check oil level in tank you should be toped off and ready to fly. Dont do like the stupid dealer and overfill it. I recommend synthetic oil when your break in is good and done.

Had mine new and changed the oil and filter out after 10 hours. then another 10 hours later changed the filter again and the oil and put in synthetic oil. Runs awesome.

I try really hard to give the right info when you need it but id rather make people laugh. Their aint enough laughter in this world.

I just got my Raptor and the oil & filter to change the oil so this thread caught my attention. I read the manual a few times and it never does "clearly" say to pour oil directly into the crankcase.

The two are called Engine oil filler cap (The one with the dipstick) and Crankcase engine oil filler cap.
But I do notice they vary a little on the exact wording at times if you you read the steps carefully. So that may be where the confusion is.

12) Install the engine oil filler cap, and the tighten it to the specified torque.
(Notice it didn't say Crankcase engine oil filler cap)

13) It states "Pour only 1.37US qt of the specified amount of the recommended engine oil through the engine oil tank filler hole"
(Now since the tank is referenced it must mean the one with the dipstick attached)

Thanks fast frenchie canada for your response.

Yeah, that's exactly what I had done and it seems to be good to go. Instead of putting the original crankcase plug back in, I installed one of those magnetic (12mm) plugs instead from TM designs. Now both plug are the same size which is nice. <sarcasm> Next time I see the dealer/service dude I'm going to thank him for overfilling. </sarcasm>

No problem, If you only fill it in the tank it aint good you need some in the crankcase also so its all lubricated. 1 quart in the tank and i quart in the crank and check the oil you should be perfectly toped off once you have started it up and shut it off with a couple off blips on the throttle to move it around real good. I am each time i do it that way. And mag plugs are good just dont over tighten and dont follow those recommended torque numbers they are full of it. Just tighten by hand then give it a 1/4 turn with the ratchet and you wont strip them out because the crankcase is made of aluminum and real buttery soft so dont go crazy or you will regret it. Use a crush washer on that belly bolt its just an added precaution. I do all this everytime and havent had a problem since i bought my baby brand new. Now tell me this how do you like that Rappy?

Before i forget seing this is your first Raptor i think, when your break in is done ajust your valves yourself just search for MPleaver. He made a really good thread on it with pics. I did it with an oil change in about 45 minutes or so then you do it after every year and it will always run like new. Its too easy and you wont need to spend money to have it done.

I try really hard to give the right info when you need it but id rather make people laugh. Their aint enough laughter in this world.
