I just changed the oil again in my Rincon.Its pretty simple and not to much of a mess,but man does it take forever to get the 3 qts. poured in that little hole or what.

Someone needs to come up with a funnel that holds 3 qts of oil and you can screw in the fill receptacle.And just pour and come back five minutes later and you would be done.

are you taking out the dipstick,that helps the flow of oil since it can vent air back out that hole as you fill,also go to walmart and look at some of thier funnels,there are some that are tapered that fit right in the hole won't hold 3 qts but it does make it easier..

I don't think you can do that. It's like putting alot of oil into the funnel and letting it go and that just doesn't work. It will start leaking out the sides of where the funnel is in the filler neck. Have you ever looked at the thing? It goes nearly straight across! I does take forever and is kinda annoying, but that's really the only way it can be done, because the area of the crankcase where the oil needs to go is so far in their.

i have done 3 oil changes so far on my rincon,so yes this is the way i do it,like i said you need to go look at all the assortment of funnels ,one with a long tapered neck that you can cut to any lenght you like and no i will not spill back out,it will seal against the threads once you cut it..by taking out the dip stick it allows the oil to flow where it needs to go alot quicker(still slow,but no worse than my motorcycle).

i wish you were closer i would show you what i'm trying to say,none of the funnels will hold a qt of oil at one time but it does work....i'd say 3-5 mins your done filling and no mess,unlike the first oil change i did on it...

Thanks for the input.I will go to Wally World and look for a good funnel.
I will try removing the dipstick to,that seems like it would help.

Man I agree, I had to change my oil again this past weekend. Pulling the dipstick does help it vent and flow a little better.

I use a flexable metal ATF funnel with a screen in the top, dipstick out, perfect flow speed, no spills. 4 changes so far, works great. I also have PRM skid plates. I made an oil diverter out of a small plastic water bottle, cut part of it away, leave the neck intact, stick it up into the PRM drain hole, loosen the long drain plug, the oil will squirt back into the cut-away bottle, out the neck into the drain pan. Very little mess on the skid plate. For the filter I made a small trough of sheet metal fastened to a stick of wood. Slide the trough up under the ATV and position under the filter, prop the stick in place on the ground, hold it with your foot, drain the oil down the trough into a drain pan. Works slick for me. I hope this helps someone.

The best way i found is with a funnel,,,And guess what?? put your quarts off oil in hot water before poring it. That way the oil is hot and flows a lot faster. Cool...

Take a 1 gallon jug w/screw cap. Drill a hole in the cap. Go to home depot and buy a plastic 1/4"mpt x 1/4" snap lock fitting and a couple of feet of plastic tubing. Screw the fitting into the cap and push the tubing into the snap lock fitting. Cut a large hole in the bottom of the jug and and a couple of slits on the sides. Fasten a strap through the slits and hang it on the handlebars. pour in all the oil and leave it. It will flow in fine unattended. About 2 bucks.
