    How do I prime the oil pump in my 95 polaris sl650?

    Any help would be great!

    I have a 750, on mine there is a bleed screw on the oil pump. Let it drain until the air gets out. I recommend running premix for the 1st tank as a precaution. Monitor the oil usage in injection tank to get warm & fuzzy before relying on it.

    Ok I'll try that. Can I just open the bleeder without it running to bleed it out? Thanks!

    Yes, just crack the bleeder screw 1/2 turn or so. I put a rag under it to catch the oil. Don't have engine running. It just purges air from the line. If yours has the variable pump, check that the linkage is hooked up & working freely.

    I have a 1997 slt 700 the oil only goes a few inches up the oil line it doesn't reach the carb what am I missing. I did bleed the oil pump till il flowed freely out of the bleeder screw screwed it back tight but oil still won't travel to the carb

    Do you mean while the engine is running? Oil will only travel to the carbs with the engine running. It moves slow, but if you disconnect the line from the carb while the engine is running and the oil flows, you have blockage at the carb. Be sure that you are running premix any time you are running the engine without the oil lines connected....
