Recon 250 oil filter???

Ok so I have been looking at the manual and online, and am I correct that there is no paper oil filter on a 2004 recon 250? I am working on it for one of my friends, and he wants me to change the earl too, it should take close to 1.5 quarts i think.

91 300 4x4 Red - Next Project

Yep, that's right, it doesn't have a paper filter like most models. It just has a screen on the inside of the engine. And it has that piece bolted to the centrifugal clutch that you just take off wipe out. And yeah, about 1.5 quarts.

Most 4-wheeler problems are caused by a loose nut connecting the handlebars and the seat!!

You only need two tools in life -- WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.

ok so one more question, how reliable are these motors? I have been looking to maybe get a 250x, if i can find one for a good price, or maybe a 400.

How reliable are the Recon 250 engines? I would say very reliable.

Does the electric shift version only shift when it is running?

No, they will shift as long as the key is on, engine doesn't have to be running. But, of course, you have to have a good battery.
