Yes, but you'll soon realise why it's worth having one when you do the job

Try it with tubes then but make sure you wear rubber gloves as the water absorption stuff in the oil will make your hands go very very dry.
It is possible and cheaper-but you'll be made up to buy the pump for next time.

Before you use tubes of gear oil..drop 'em in a bucket of very hot water for a while.. thins the oil out and makes life a lot easier...

No going to order the pump today and another 1L bottle and use some of this one I have now to flush and a top up.
Feel a bit of a mug as I bought a "All you need to service your Yamaha 100-115" Kit. Which Came with 1L gear oil, impeller, Fuel filter and plugs. Wouldn't have been hard to include washers. But then again I should have checked first.

Then you need to buy a Starbrite Gear Lube Pump, part # 27400 from your local swindlery, last one cost me 6.00, and it's almost identical to the yammy one.

Or a Mercury one, part #91-850729a1 6.91 you'll also need the adapter for a yam, which I think is around 1.50

I've got the merc one and they aren't very good-they only reach half way into the 1 litre bottle. I hadn't seen the Starbrite one before but one is going to replace my mercury one now as the pickup tube is a lot longer.

Capacity is about 25 oz (US) (760 cm3) or so, depending, I think, on year and leg.

The pump is pretty indispensible, IMO. You can do the change using tubes, but the pump and a bottle makes it much easier, faster, and neater.
