First Service

I'm new to the site and can already say "You guys know your stuff!". I'm getting ready for do my 10hr service on my 2010 Outlander XT-P. My local dealer wanted $300 to do it. I thought that was a little to steep for my blood so I'd tackle it myself. Other than changing the oil and filter and greasing the fittings, is there anything else that really needs to be done? I know the manual says to change the gearbox oil but I've read numerous places that this isn't really necessary after only 10 hours.

I would recommend changing it to synthetic. Won't cost you much and very easy to do!

Thanks. I didn't even think of that. I went down to the dealer and bought the summer grade conventional oil, but now I'm looking through the online catalog and I'm seeing they have a synthetic all season oil that I think I might go with instead.

I paid 280 for first service that included valve check.

I have seen posts from 150 to 400 and major difference it the valve check as mine had been just 160 without valve check.

Major reason owners have taken their machine to dealer for first service is the warranty "easyness" as there have been posts that most dealers have had little resistance to warranty stuff if first service was not done by dealer and I have even seen posts that BRP have asked dealer who did the first service.

You spent about 12k on your new machine and if that had been my money I would take it to dealer and do rest services myself (like I do as I bougth the clutch tools).

I would change gear box oil, it gets broken down fast, put Amsoil chaincase in to replace it. 10 hr is supposed to have a valve adjustment, though a lot of dealers leave it until the 100 hr. If they want 300 they are probably doing everything that is recommended. Synthetics are the best, mine came factory filled with Castrol synthetic in the motor, I thought they all did?

Even though it is not shown as being needed at the 10 hour service, I would recommend also changing the oil in the front / rear differentials. I waited until about 25 hours to do mine and the rear diff fluid was nasty. Weird thing is that the drain plug on the diffs is the only non metric bolt on the entire quad.

I talked to the service manager and he told me to go ahead and do it myself. Its a small mom and pop dealer so they're really easy to get along with. I did get enough chain case oil to do the gear box and both front and rear diffs. I guess my main job before I start is to get the underbelly clean from the last ride. I would definitely say that nobody held a candle to what my bike would do and most of them didn't even try. Thanks for the help guys!!

Man that's nasty MUD! Use chaincase in the tranny but 75/90 in the diffs.

That's good ol' Southeast Texas gumbo mud! Thanks for the advice on the diffs. The dealership told me they both used the same. So now I'm a bit stumped. Is it maybe because of the high temperatures down here?

Owners manual says different but if they are gonna honor your warranty if anything goes bad that's all cool. I would think with heat you would want thicker just telling what I use and had no probs. I can see you'll be mounting your rad on the front rack sooner or later, heh heh heh. Nice Ride.
