Any pics of where oil filter is & how to get to it? Same with oil filler? I assume from looking under Wolverine that oil drain plug is toward rear middle of vehicle?

Thanks!

Oil filter is on back of engine easy to get to, need a small oil filter wrench drain is pretty easy to find as well. Fill through dipstick tube

changing oil on the wolverine is fairly easy. oil filter is easy to get to, right inside the back right tire. get a small funnel and pour it in the dipstick hole that is under the passenger seat. drain plug is on the bottom of engine easy to get to also. oil filter may be tight i think a few of ours was.

Fair warning, factory oil filter is tight as hell! I had to drive a screwdriver through mine to get it off!

Somethings don't change! As I recall, I ran into this same scenario on my 2007 Yamaha Grizzly--wasn't put on with 11 pounds of torque!

No, you can see the engine without removing anything. The filter is at the bottom of the engine. Easily accessed through the wheel opening.
The dipstick/ fill tube is under the passenger seat. Remove the seat base and the rubber cover for the seat belt buckle

This dipstick found that dipstick. I will now search for filter. Thanks for the direction!

yeah as hammer said the oil filter is easily accessible, it is black, if you look right past the back right wheel on the back side of the engine it is sitting on the frame dang near, and is easy to get to.

Thanks, guys! I found it. Glad I didn't start removing body panels looking for oil filter and oil filler plug!

I think first change is 200 miles not 200hrs. I change mine once a year but I only ride about 500 miles a year.

After the first oil change (200 hrs) how often do you change your oil and do you change the filter everytime ?

I just performed my 2nd oil change "just in case". I have about 650 miles and 46 hours.

And No, I don't change my filter every time.

If you are going to go thru the work of changing the oil, why wouldn't you change the filter? Fairly inexpensive, your engine is to valuable to worry about saving a few bucks on a filter.

I didn't because I'm changing the oil at way shorter intervals, and it's really fast with an oil collection device.

In a way, my work is on people too. Ha. I’m an air traffic controller. I wish I lived close enough to trails to ride that much. There’s hardly anything convenient within an hour or two of where I live.
