I want to change the filter in my oil injection system, but in the owners manual it says the system must be properly bled when the filter is changed.As usual, it says to take it to the dealer instead of giving instructions on how to bleed the oil injection system.Can someone tell me how this is done.

Is it just an inline filter? If so I just replaced it and poured a little into the fillter, the stuck the ends on and replaced the clamps so the injector mechanism never got air into it.

Is yours a different system?

Steve you did not mention what kind of sled?
B-man said what is typicaly correct to do.
The dealer will premix you're fuel tank just like when you purchased it incase air is in the line. Watch the oil tank, that it is being used sometimes vaporlock happens. If you can see through the injection lines watch for air bubles and make sure they move with the oil. They are ok that is why you premix the first tank.

If you have a Polaris, there is a screw on the top of the oil pump. The oil pump will be located on the rear of the crankcase, under the carbs. You'll probally want to remove the air box to get to it. Get a long standard screwdriver, or a 5/16?? socket that will reach down there. unscrew it a couple of turns, but do not take the screw out. The oil will start bleeding out. When your filter is full and no more air comes through the line, screw her back in. Oh yea - yoiu may want to gave some old shop regs under the pump and engine to collect the oil.

RXLRIDER, do you bleed the pump with the engine at idle or not running at all??? I am assuming gravity is what you have in mind. I have a similar situation and need to install my motor this weekend.

One thing you might want to try is to unhook the line from the pump and take a air gun and shoot some air in to the opening of you oil resovor to push the oil into the line and filter. but be carfull not to use to much. the pump should stay primed. Not sure if it will work but it is worth a try.

Megaman - while the engine is off. The bleed screw is below the oil tank, and gravity takes over from there. It is not a bad idea to premix your first tank of fuel as well, and make sure that you really used oil out of your oil tank. That extra lubrication never hurts. Good luck with the install - I am putting my 650 (overbored to 700) back in this weekend as well. Think snow!

Hey, thanks for all the input guys!This site is the best!The sled I'm talking about is a '00 340 Dlx, but I think they are all inline filters.
