New Tools

I just set up in the garage to do the inaugural oil change (got about 12 hours on it now). So I got my supplies ready; oil, filter, tools, heat, music, beer, and I was feeling quite content........... until I crawled under the bike to have a look!! The oil drain plug requires some goofy star shaped allen wrench looking thing which I had to purchase when I recently installed some Ricochet arm guards. Can't just buy one either I had to get the whole frickin set. So I'm good in that regard. Anyhow, I then turned my attention to the oil filter itself. There is no way in hell I'm getting my oil filter wrench into that space.
Can I assume that I have to acquire a special Polaris oil filter wrench?
This is my question if you were wondering where all this whining was heading.
BTW, how many other "new" tools are on my event horizon?
Oh well. Two beers down range at this point and significant other is busy preparing wine braised beef short ribs for supper. Could be worse I suppose.

Cheers,

Ha! yes, there is a very special oil filter puller for the XP's. Havent seen any aftermarket ones that fit exactly right, and its pretty much impossible to get the filter out without this tool.

Do you want the good news or the bad news first?

We will start with the good news. You can own this filter wrench. Your local dealer order for you. You likely wont find it online, but it is inside the dealer network online. It is part # PU-50105, and its considered the "small" oil filter wrench, but it is the correct one for you.

The bad news. There is no retail price, but expect to pay in the neighborhood of $25 or $30 for this tool. And maybe a little shipping too. And the worst part is, its ordered seperate of polaris parts, and a certain mininmum must be meet to order, which can be hard for any dealer to make, so it maybe hard to order it without the shipping cost being more then the part itself.

My suggestion is this, because of this reason, the dealership I worked at had 3 of them, one stayed in the mechanics toolbox at all times, the other two were loaners. Wanted to change your own oil? Anybody could come on down, give us $30, we give you the wrench and a recipt. Change your oil, bring it back to us, we give you your $30 back. That way our customers could change their own oil without having to actually buy it. Might be worth a shot to call and see if you dealer does something similar.

Wow

Thanks for the info.
Unimpressed with Polaris on this issue however. You would think that Polaris Engineers would be facilitating oil changes rather than hindering them.
Probably just shoddy engineering and not malicious but still a pain in the A$$
Still, what is everyone else on this board doing wrt filter changes?
Hopefully we're not all schlepping back to the dealers!

From what I've read on this issue its probably better to take it to the dealer for the first change anyway. The factory filter is usually stuck on there and requires extraordinary methods to get it off. My dealer did the first service on mine as part of the purchase. I guess I should think about acquiring the proper tools myself...

Or you can go with one of these:

They're not the Polaris model, but either should work well for you.

Just go to your local parts store and buy an end cap wrench. They are not rare, I have a few here.

I used this one on mine.
