I purchased an oil change kit off of Amazon and was pleasantly surprised. The kit has three qts of 10w40,oil filter,and three gaskets, well two crush washers,one aluminum,one copper,and one rubber O-ring. I have no idea where a O-ring goes its about an inch and a half diameter, any ideas? Oh and a paper funnel. But its $40 bucks and I think worth every penny because its all O.E.M.stuff

I believe that o ring goes on your dipstick but I am nowhere near my Kodiak right now to verify.

I did a couple of searches.

The 93210-35512 is a O ring for the oil pump on the 450's

The 214-11198-01 is the oil drain washer for a older model 450

None of the part numbers come up for a 700

There is no O ring on the dipstick.

I can't remember if you have the 700 or the 450

You need to go into your account and add your Kodiak and what it is in the signature.

For a filter I have been using a Wix 57040 and with my next oil change this summer I believe that I'll go with Shell Rotella 5w-40 synthetic.

You can find either at just about any auto parts store and you can get the Rotella at Walmart

Lol, I've got my power equipment mixed up. It's my portable generator that has an o ring on the dipstick. I just changed the oil a few days ago lol. Incidentally, I cut open the last Yamaha oil filter I used and I won't be buying another. It's WIX all the way from here on in for my machines.

I get the exact kit most of the time. Buy it a month or two before I need it, and it sits in that pretty white box just waiting. Good find.

Ive not seen anything on yamaha filters been crap. But that is something to conside for sure

Yup wix filter and rotella t6, cheaper than an oem change and far better quality.

I buy my rotella in 5 gal pail for an even more discounted oil change.

Yamaha doesn't make them. They are assembled in Japan from components made in China by Denso. Open up the one you take off and give it a good examination. They are not much of a step up from Fram and certainly not worth the premium they ask. And yes, Shell rotella T6 5w40 for the win. Awesome stuff.

I've been using semi synthetic tractor transmission fluid in the final drive and synthetic 75w90 gl-5 fluid in the front. It is my understanding you can use the synthetic gl-5 in the rear as well. I just use the tractor fluid because I got gifted 2 gallons.

I just use the Yamaha lube for wet brake in the rear of our 2 kodiaks I think I got it on partzilla for like $9 a quart . I found some ultra 1 plus synthetic gl- 4 on amazon for pretty cheap but I went looked for a price and they are out of it.

Same here, yamalube for the diffs just because it's fairly cheap, can be used in front diff too with no issue. One quart will do 2 changes each front & rear.

No that would be engine oil. The diff oil is 80w90.
This is for the rear diff with wet brakes, but as you can see right on the bottle, it says it can be used in diffs with our without wet brakes.

The big thing for the final drive/rear end oil is that it meets the GL-4 specification for the wet brake to work properly.

As you can see on the bottle pictured it has the API service rating of GL-4 and GL-5
