Heard a rumor that due to needing a special tool to do oil changes, only dealers can do them. True? Another rumor is you have to buy tires from Can Am due to the odd sizes. True? Thanks!

Never heard of any special tool for oil change. Did mine recently no special tool involved.

Also not ture on the tire statement either. A dealer might refuse to put anything other than the stock tire.

Thanks, my neighbor owned one a few years back with the twin motor and that's what he told me after he sold it. Not the first time he's fed me BS.

NO. Both wrong.
But those kinds of lies are common with Spyder dealers.

If you have a modicum of mechanical ability and the proper tools, none of them uncommon, one can change the oil and filter on any Spyder. That means, for example with the 1330 ACE engine, T30 & T45 Torx bits, 6mm Allen bit and 36mm socket along with the appropriate ratchet with a couple of different extensions to make the job a bit easier. If one is a stickler for details a torque wrench is necessary but most folks don't use one from what I read. The ability to read and follow directions helps, but watching videos can solve that problem.
