Changing oil on a DF90

Hi guys,
A friend of mine has an Adventure RIB with a DF90 on it. Today he said a beeper started beeping (didnt say whether it was constant or intermitant). He said that in the manual it says that the beeper will sound when it's due an oil change

1) Where is the oil filter? I couldn't see it when I had a quick look earlier. I'm guessing its behind the plastic covering at the front of the engine?
2) What oil should be used
3) If the beeper sounding is normal, how do you reset it?

Many thanks!

You need to unbolt all the side panel bolts (9 from memory) and remove the starboard side panel.

Switch the ignition on and pull the red kill switch out three times.

Thanks for the info! Much appreciated!

I probably should have mentioned, the dealer who my friend bought the boat off 'lost' the manual and to date has not replaced it, hence all the questions!

Sorry

The best bet would be to ring a dealer and ask to be put through to the workshop. It might need a specific marine oil.


This might help though:-

http://store.brownspoint.com/detail....90C0-10W40-1GL

It lists filters for the df90 under 10w40 oil so I'd assume thats the right oil.

Suzuki only apparently supply 10w40 and 20w50 marine 4-stroke oil.

I figured as much it was just standard 10w - 40 but didn't want to take any chances! Thanks!

Be aware it might well need a special marine grade oil though to withstand the salt air. If you can't get that I'd use Magnatec as a stopgap-it sticks so shoul prevent internal rust.

RIB is used on fresh water use only but thanks for pointing it out. I don't think he'll be able to get an oil filter anywhere today (Sunday) anyway so I might just tell him to get the proper stuff when getting a filter tomorrow
