What happens if you don't? Maybe bad stuff. There'* gears and bearings in there, and a coupler The oil cools and lubes everything in the nosedrive. It might even be low/empty and you might not know.

I do mine every year. Might be overkill, but I do the drain/fill, run for 5 minutes, drain fill, run, drain/fill every year. I wanna baby it, especially with the smaller pulley on there.

Techinfo is for you, bud.

close to 2 bottles for a flush.. will have to top up Tamaras for now as I only have 1 bottle and haven't had time to pick up another bottle for her.

P.*. seeries II... so it seems series II needs 2 bottles and series I is 1 1/4 - 1 3/4 bottle for flush
