Hi Guys. Could anyone please tell me how to change the oil in my semi auto 07 Vinson and what type off oil I must use.

It is hard to get it out of 5th gear and the gear box is very noisy. I hear a good oil change might solve the problem.

Thanks

can't say the plug size off the top of my head, BUT the plug is on the bottom of the engine case. there should be a hole in the plastic skid pan that reveals a plug. take the plug out and drain your oil.

as for refilling, there's a twist cap on the right side of the engine take that off and fill with 3.8qts. you'll have just a bit left over out of a 4qt jug if that's what you use.

as for oil i use Rotella 15w40. it has the same qualities, and is wet clutch certified. some will say you have to use atv specific oils. do not use oil that is "energy conserving"!! good thing about rotella is that it's 11.00/GAL and almost every walmart in the country carries it.

something else to look into is a clutch adjustment. a way to test your clutch adjustment is to start the bike, pull the shifter up (as if putting the bike in 1st gear), but HOLD the shifter up. this will keep the trans in a suspended neutral position, then just "feather" the gas (don't pin it wide open, just a slight feather will do it), when you feather the gas if the bike tried to lunge forward, or feels like it's trying to move, you need a clutch adjustment.

as for your noisy gear case/transmission....... that is a common characteristic of the 500m's (vinson's and arctic cats). i've tried the high dollar syntec oils 10w40, and still could hear some chatter out of the trans. i hear the same thing with rotella and non syntec atv oils, so i chose to stay with rotella!

The engine and transmission oil are the same,thats why you need to make sure its oil made for wet clutch applications. Can't say I know how to adjust the clutch, but I'm sure someone on here does and will answer that.

Vinson Clutch adjustment

Pull of the cover on the right hand side, that's held on by 2 phillips screws.
Loosen both nuts, ones a 10mm the other is 14mm
Turn the screw with the 14mm nut with a flat head screwdriver counter clockwise till it stops.
Now tighten the 10mm nut.
Now turn the screw clockwise 1/4 of a turn.
Hold the screw and tighten the 14mm nut.

To see if it worked, start the quad, shift it into first but hold the shifter up with your foot and rev the engine.
It shouldn't move at all.
Then when you put it in gear it should go normal.
That means it good to go.
