Hey guys, i recently made a post about How to change your oil, for my school projext, well i just finished it, and a few of you guys wanted me to put the finished result up, maybe for future help, idk... Well here it is, and idk what grade i got on it yet as its due tomorrow lol, the see Fig, parts are cuase i got pic in it but am to lazy to post all the pics i did, so here it is everyone, and to everyone that helped it is greatly appreciated.

<span style="color:#0000FF">[b]CONCLUSION:

After you are done, clean up your work area, and wipe off any oil you may have spilled, throw all the garbage away. GO RIDE! Congratulations! You have successfully changed the oil in your quad, in little time, now you can ride knowing that you have a smooth running engine. The next time you change your oil will depend on how hard you ride, I usually change my oil after every 3 rides, and have not had a problem. I would not go for more than 5 rides though if preventable.

Hey, great info you got there. I just have a question for you even though it might sound a bit stupid. Today I wanted to change my oil and removed the bolt(14mm) underneath the engine a bit to the rear-left side. Not much oil came out, I thought I drained the engine oil until i was told by someone I had drained the transmission oil. Im a bit confused now so if you could help it would be great.

Thanks a lot.

You drain the 14mm bolt underneath the motor, and you drain the oil tank reservoir as well. Who ever told you that you just drained the tranny or gear oil is probably a 2-stroke guy.
