Rincon 680 oil drain plug.

Just about to change the oil in my 2008 Rincon 680 for the first time.
Is the plug drain bolt a normal thread, i.e. turn left to loosen & right to tighten? Just want to be certain before starting. Also, what size socket or wrench do I need for the job? I was thinking of lifting the front of the ATV with the winch to help me get to the plug easier. Is that a good idea? I could lower it when the plug is loose?
Thanks,
Eastman.

Yes it has normal threads, CCW to loosen, CW to tighten. Be easy and do not over tighten, I understand it's easy to do. If you raise the front of the machine you will get more oil to drain that will not drain when it is level. Sorry, don't remember the wrench size.

^^^^ what's CCW and CW? 17mm if I remember right - torque wrench is a good investment to tighten stuff.

Lefty loosy righty tighty. 17mm for oil bolt, do NOT overtighten (metal bolt into aluminum threads) or undertighten (if the washer slides down the bolt) when putting it back on or you will have another issue. Same with the oil filter housing bolts - to prevent overtightening those hold the socket wrench close to the center so you don't have as much leverage as near the end of the handle. They are easy to snap and very difficult to drill out and replace.

rincon 680 oil drain plug.

Thank you all for your info & advice. I did the oil change today and it seemed to go well. I only got the Rincon a couple of months ago, and decided to change to synthetic oil. I have never done this before because this is my first ever ATV!! I wanted to do it myself, but not cock things up, so I asked you for advice. I did find it difficult to use a socket wrench for the drain bolt because I couldn't get the wrench on the socket once the socket was on the bolt head. There just wasn't enough room because of the skid plate, so I used a regular wrench, as I didn't want to remove the plate.
Anyway, I manged to do the job, and can't see any leaks!
I used Mobil1-4T racing, and it took around 3.5 quarts. I'll take it for a run when the rain stops, and check it out.
Thanks again.

PS. Honda Tinkerer, What do you mean by the washer sliding down the bolt??

Know what you mean about the skid plate - last year I removed the plate - BIG MISTAKE - it fit much better when new and not all bashed up. This year I removed the drain plug and let the oil find its own way to the floor

Thanks for the CCW / CW clarification
