01 bombardier ds 650 oil change question

Recommended Posts

Whats goin on guys I just recently got a 01 bombardier ds 650. First bombardier I've had. I just have a question about the oil. I know it has a dry sump system and you have to drain the oil can then the oil from the motor. after everything is drained and new oil filter is in, how much oil goes in the can and how much goes in the motor itself? I know the entire thing takes about 3.17 qts of oil. Also in the service manual it says not to run synthetic oil but I have used synthetic in my kfx450r that i had before. Have any of you guys used synthetic in your ds's? Let me know ASAP because my bike needs an oil change.

Apparently nobody here owns a DS 650. I would consult a dealer technician about that if you haven't already figured it out.

I don't know about the filling it but I was reading you have to bleed the air out of the oil line. It says most people back the plug out until air can pass through it (not completely out) and turn the motor over until a steady stream pours out. Tighten it back and install the filter and do a final oil level check.

I did find this on another site:

In regards to chainging the oil it is more involved than just draining the oil tank under the headlight. Here are the steps you will want to take.

1) Find the hose that runs from the oil tank to the motor. Its on the left side as you sit on the quad. Have an oil pan handy and a big roll of paper towels (your going to need themhttp://forums.atvconnection.com/images/smilies/smile.gif) Loosen the hose at the motor and quickly place it over an oil pan and let drain. This will drain the oil tank.

2) The same hose you removed at the motor you want to remove underneath the oil tank. THere is a mesh oil screen in there that should be checked from time to time. Since you have no way of knowing whether the prior owner cleaned the screen I highly recommend checking it.

2) Remove the oil plug underneath the motor. Let drain into oil pan.

3) Remove oil filter. THis is where you are going to need a lot of paper towels.

4) Your almost there... Put in a new oil filter, replace the drain plug on the bottom and tighten the oil line between the tank and the motor back up.

5) Place ~3qt of oil into oil tank and start her up and let it run for a few minutes. Make sure the red light on the dash goes out within a few seconds of startup or else shut it down. Let sit and check oil level. My DS took about 3.3qt everytime I changed the oil. Use a good 10-40wt conventional or "motorcycle" synthetic that is safe for wet clutches. If you use an automotive synethic you clutch will end up slipping.

I think if you prime/bleed the air like it says after do do the change you should be fine.

hey i own the same bike as you and actually its the same color. I only changed the oil in my bike twice, and I never used synthetic oil. I only used the regular pennzoil 10w-40 motor oil, even though the racing type is recommended. my bike runs great so if i were u, dont use the synthetic oil.

kind regards,

      Yamaha Australia has announced it will discontinue selling Utility ATVs due to new Australian government legislation that requires the mandatory fitment of so-called Operator Protective Devices (OPDs), YMA will not sell utility ATVs after the government compliance deadline of 11 October 2021.
      “The decision to make the fitment of OPDs compulsory is disappointing. The ruling has forced us to withdraw utility ATVs from the Australian market because as a manufacturer we are not willing to gamble with our customers lives by bolting untested devices onto our specifically engineered and designed ATVs,” explains YMA Director Brad Ryan.
      As the market leader in this segment, Yamaha recognises that utility ATVs are an important part of farm operations and will comply with stage one of the new consumer legislation. This includes testing and the fitment of warning labels by Oct 2020. This will ensure that Yamaha ATVs remain available until October 2021.
      After this date customers will not be able to purchase a new Yamaha utility ATV in Australia – but sport and youth models will continue to be available. This is because new sport and fun ATVs do not need to be fitted with OPDs. In addition, side-by-side vehicles (SSVs) are not affected by this ruling, so YMA will support our utility ATV dealers and ease the transition from ATV to AG bike and SSV business.
      “Fortunately, our utility ATV customers can transition to our equally capable lineup of AG bikes and expanding SSV range,” adds YMA Director Brad Ryan.
      Customer safety has always been our priority. YMA has provided market leading rider training and promoted proven safety methods. YMA also helped develop the Shark ATV helmet which is the only fully certified farm safe ATV helmet available. YMA feels so strongly about customer safety that purchasers of new Yamaha utility vehicles will receive a free Shark farm safe helmet valued at $250 while stocks last.
      YMA is also fully committed to customer care via a national dealer network that will continue to service ATVs and with the supply of parts and accessories into the future.

      I have a 05 sportsman 700 carb and I also have tires and rims from an 19 Polaris General. Bolt pattern is the same. Do I need to change out the studs to be bigger?

      Ok...I'm gettin' me juevos ready to do an oir filter clean....
      Went to my local harley/quad dealer and he had me purchase the No-Toil kit (Cleaner, Air Filter Oil, Rim Grease)
      What I've read is that the No-Toil cleaner will NOT clean
      other oils off air filters....just the No-Toil oil....
      So, I've also read that others have cleaned their air filters
      in the kitchen sink, used gasoline, or used flash solvent....
      Looking for advice as I've mentioned I'm very mechanically
      I'm going to wash the air box seal in the sink and give it a good dry....
      One more thing......No-Toil or Bel-Ray for filter oil?
