While doing the rear oil change on my 400 I ran into the problem of how to get the new oil in,
I found one answer in the refrigerator, a squeeze bottle of mustard worked very well . :)

Oil can works pretty good too...the kind with a trigger that pumps the oil out.

ok, another silly question.

Some people are saying they use "gear oil" (90weight), while other just use regular 10w40 oil for their tranny.

What gives? Are they talking about two different uses? Or does the 650 use 10w40 and 400 use gear oil? Or, it is just a preference thing?

Thanks

As Jim pointed out, 650 has three lube points: up front, engine and transmission.

Then that long row of gears (6, I think) from the tranny to the rear wheel. That's the "final drive" where the gear oil goes.

Think "Engine, tranny, differential" if a car analogy helps.

The 400 does not have a transmission. Therefore you put 10-40 or 20-50 in the engine and rear gear drive.

Well, no -- it has a transmission ( a mechanically actuated CVT), but it's not a three point lube arrangement like the 650.
