grin 2008/09 700xx Oil Change

This is an informational guide on how to change the oil on your 2008 700xx. You should consult your ATV repair manual for actual instructions as your quad may vary.


MAKE SURE YOU DO NOT OVERTORQUE THE FILTER COVER BOLTS...YOU WILL BREAK THEM.

You will need:

A large oil pan

A 1/4" drive ratchet

A 3/8" drive ratchet

A 6" 3/8" drive extension

A 8 mm socket

A 14 mm wrench

A 17 mm socket

For those of you who would like to play along at home please view Chapter 4-12.

The 1st thing that the manual tells you to do is 1st warm up the quad, normally I wouldn't do this but since I'm writing this guide and don't want to half-ass it...I did.





After warming it up a few minutes, turn it off and remove the main engine drain bolt with your 6" drive and 17 mm socket.

Left loosy, righty tighty.



Then go around the "passenger" front of the quad and loosen the bolt with your 14 mm wrench. (you could use a socket, I couldn't find mine)



Once you remove both bolts the oil should drain pretty easily. Make sure that you have washers for BOTH BOLTS.



As you can see one has fallen off and is in the pan of the 2nd picture.



Next the manual asks that you remove the filter cover. You will need your 1/4" ratchet and your 8mm socket.



Once you have it removed you should see the filter read "this side and spring towards engine" written on the filter. (if it's a Honda filter, others may not) As you can see I'm being anal once again and putting the bolts in the pattern for which they were removed from the quad. The background reason is that if for some reason a wacky engineer decided to put coarse threaded bolts next to fine threaded bolts..you get the idea.



I decided to wipe out the inside of this area just to see how dirty the oil was in there. Not too bad!



Now make sure you put the filter in correctly again, check this over and over again to be safe.







It all goes back in...finger tight 1st to make sure I haven't cross-threaded anything.



After tightening down the 8mm bolts it's time to put the other drain bolts in. I normally wipe the bolts down to be sure I'm not putting dirt inside the motor as part of this process.



Now romove the dipstick and put the oil in.



It's easy with a funnel with a tube on it.



1.8 US quarts should be all you need according to the guide.

After assemby I check all my bolts to make sure I didn't brain fart and skip one. After that I start it up and let it warm up. After it's warm I check the oil to make sure it's where it's supposed to be.

You're done!

I'm too far from my dealer. A 3 hour drive up to Dallas for an oil change negates any savings from the free oil changes.

So, I went to the local Honda dealer which I bought my 700xx. I asked for an oil filter for my quad, and changed the oil/filter. After doing so, I got a bad feeling that I needed to check the oil filter part number to make sure that I had the correct oil filter. The filter I installed fit perfectly and I have no idea why I got a bad feeling about it but I found that the part number should be 15410-KF0-315. This info came from the following website: http://www.motosport.com/atv/oem.php...&groupId=80570. The oil filter part number I was given reads 15412-HM5-A10. I was wondering for any of you that change your own oil if you could check what part number yours is on the package. I'm quite worried that I may have the incorrect filter.

Google that part number!
none that I saw listed the 700xx, just the fourtrax line.
I would triple check!
