If you’re the owner of a Lynx 4-stroke snowmobile, this is the perfect time to change your snowmobile’s oil, removing any dirt and particles before it sits all summer. If you’re the DIY-type, the XPS Oil Change Kit offered at your local Lynx dealer makes it easy with everything you need all in one box. Your dealer can also perform this service if preferred.
The oil change process is very simple and requires just a few tools that are easy to find at most local hardware or automotive stores.
In order to start the oil change process, you’ll want to park your sled on a level surface and bring the engine up to operating temp. Once warmed, shut the sled off, remove the left side panel and remove the oil dipstick located just behind the clutch cover.
Next, you’ll remove the right side panel to access and remove the oil filter.
The oil drain plug / plugs is found under the sled and is protected by and access cover. Remove one of the access cover screws and loosen the second enough to rotate the access cover out of the way to access the drain plug / plugs. Place a drain pan under the sled and remove the drain plug.
Once the oil has drained, replace the sealing washer (included in XPS oil change kit) on the drain plug. Reinstall the plug and protective cover. Install new oil filter and O-ring (both included in XPS oil change kit), and fill with the proper among of fresh oil (included in XPS oil change kit) as outlined in your operator’s manual.
Double check for any leaks, and dispose of your used oil responsibly.
