changing oil on a 2001 DS 650

Hello My name is David. Just joined, I bought my can-am ds 650 about one year ago. I'm trying to change the oil. I was reading some of the forums and I think I got all the oil out, problem that I am having is making sure I get all the oil back into the the right spots. I filled were the dipstick was up to the second line of the dip stick and then I also put oil in down where the clutch cable goes into the engine but I did not know how full to fill it there. Can someone help please?

I hope this helps you.



In regards to changing 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.

The oil goes in where the dipstick is, nowhere else. Only thing that may need doing is bleeding the system if the oil warning light stays on. Did you drain oil from the main reservoir and the sump, with dipstick and oil filter out?

Now its weird you mention a knocking noise, see my post DS650 knocking sound but not from motor?

I too have just changed the oil!!!!

Can anybody tell me what the tell tales signs of clutch slip are, maybe we have both put the wrong oil in? Mine is to the spec but not Bombardier oil....

Make sure the oil filter is in the right direction, I'm thinking these have a check valve in the filter like Honda has and it will take the top end out of the motor in a big hurry due to lack of lube if it is installed backwards.

I gotta ask, if you're oil is to spec then how could it be wrong?

Check clutch slip-

1. find brick wall or telephone poll
2. put front end against and ease the clutch out

If motor dies right away, clutch not slipping
If motor ramps, clutch slipping <--put the correct oil in before changing the clutch.

pg. 87 from Ice CanAm is most important, or you'll be reading page 261? on replacing the crank & bearings.

I see somebody is looking for a crank now.

I can answer that then, motor dies! The oil is to specification, just not Canam/Bombardier oil.

I was wondering more if it made any noises, squeaks or knocking/banging but having said that the noise mine was making does not sounds like it comes from the motor, going to check the whole back end/chain area out.....
