Hello, I'm new here and just got myself a red and black 2008 DVX 400. I was wondering how much oil it takes to do an oil change? any info would be great.

I had a dvx for a while. Don't remember what weight oil it takes, but I think it was 10w-40. Use a ATV oil, preferable a synthetic of the proper weight. You need to drain the oil from both the engine case and the oil reservoir. The oil filter is under the cap on the right side of the motor. It's held in by three bolts. It's a canister type filter.

Does anyone know the proper way to check the oil? Do you check with the dip stick screwed all the way in or just resting at the top of the threads?
