Are you asking how much it is for you to change all the fluids or the dealership..? If your doing it it'll probably cost you about $50 - $60 for the engine oil, filter, and front differential oil. If you let the dealership do it your probably looking at $140 for the whole thing. But it is fairly easy to do, if you need assistance i can certainly help you there.

As for the bolts in the plastic, probably heat. Either then that I'm not to sure.

Soak with good penetrating lube. Also invest in a #3 Philips, it helps if its a JIS, but can be done without. I have used vice grips on the ones the po stripped. Do not use the screw driver to try to loosen, or you will probably strip it.

Rusty bolts

Make sure the oil filter you buy includes the inner O-ring. Or pick one up from your local auto parts shop. It is 1.9cm thick and 13cm ID. It seals the bottom of the oil filter. A lot of the cheap filters don't include one and a lot of ATVs are running without one. Make sure you look at the picture and assemble everything in the correct order.
I find it easiest to jack up the right rear corner and remove the tire since the oil drain and filter are directly behind that wheel. The engine oil also lubes your rear differential. Only the front uses 80-90 gear lube. It's drain and fill holes are also on the right side and pretty obvious.

oxidized_black can probably help you find a service manual to download. It will walk you through the procedure.


For the rusty body bolts try this:
Welcome to: Loctite® Freeze & Release

I've never used it, but it sounds like a good alternative to a torch on plastic.

Oxidized_black hasn't been on the forum for quite a while, and the site where you could download his manuals isn't working anymore. As for the o-ring you are correct, but most of time i re-use the same one. I simply clean and inspect them and if they look alright i apply a slight film of oil to it and put back on. And when i buy my oil filter i buy the Suzuki oil filters that don't come with them, but i do have a spare of each encase i need them.

87-98 LT-4WD and KING Quad manual download

Here's the link to down load the srevice manual:

https://www.yousendit.com/dl?phi_act...bEplcEt2eE1UQw

I have the actual printed version in my files and find it is very lacking in the carburetor section. When Suzuki updated to the BST31SS carb in 1990, they didn't update that section. I downloaded a 96-98 Polaris manual which uses the same carb. It does a very good job on that model (CV) carb, although the pics aren't super clear on this download. I usually open the pics in photo shop and play with the brightness and contrast for specific details:

Thank you for the manual, nice to have one rather than looking at parts breakdown diagrams.

You looking for aftermarket of OEM? There isn't a whole lot of aftermarket for them. Absolutely no wheels, period. Winch mounts, mufflers, and hand guards are about it.
I get my OEM stuff from cyclepartonline.com or cheapcycleparts.com. There are plenty of others, but I like the prices at these two and cyclepartonline has flat $7 shipping. Some get pretty hefty shipping fees.

Oh, one thing I haven't seen mentioned regarding your original question about doing an oil change is the type of oil. Everyone has a favorite, but be sure the oil says JASO-MA
on the bottle. The oils to avoid usually say something about better MPG. They have friction modifiers that won't work with your wet clutch. I personally use Shell Rotella T6 synthetic 5w40. That way I can run it year round. I know it says diesel on the bottle, but a lot of ATV and Motorcycle people swear by it. It is JASO-MA approved.

"The Japanese Automotive Standards Organization (JASO) has created their own set of performance and quality standards for engines of Japanese origin.
For 4-stroke gasoline engines, the JASO T904 standard is used, and is particularly relevant to motorcycle engines. The JASO T904-MA and MA2 standards are designed to distinguish oils that are approved for wet clutch use."
