Chain case oil change

Hey guys I changed the oil in my chain case yesterday (13 800 RR) getting it ready for another season.. I wanted to share how I did it with you guys... I'm sure many of you know this trick but this is for the ones who don't.

There was no way I was gona split my chain case apart to drain the oil and if there is a plug well someone please tell me.

I took my sucker/filler gun (mostly used for gear oil in Differentials) and added an extra 2ft piece of hose to the end of if. (snowmobile gaz line).

I fed it down the chain case filler hole, there's a sweet spot and once you find it it's easy.

In three pulls I was able to draw out the old gear oil, bone dry, no mess, 16oz of fresh stuff and good to go!

Cheers

Great idea,i see you have one of the early lencho rooler torsional caps like I still have,we used that cover on my old 95 zrt 800 when we thought the rooler was the balls.

That's off my old 04 F7.. It's cheaper to replace whole thing than to buy a new bushing and rollers

Assuming this will also work on 4 stroke Models? Is the fill hole the same (Top left as you look at the chaincase / oil reservoir from the right side of the sled)?

Us 4 stroke guys have the servo motor there.

I usually pull the cover in the spring to look inside, before storage, but like to change the oil once during mid season. The last time I had the cover off, I drilled and tapped hole for 1/8" pipe thread, and installed a small hex head plug in the bottom of the cover. I then drilled a hole in the plastic cover under the plug. Can reach right in with a small hex socket/extension. Popped a black plastic body plug in after to keep the snow out. I kind of worry about wearing out the self tapping screw holes on the chaincase, taking it apart too many times. The sucker is a good idea, though
