Thread: Winterizing 2015 Raptor 6.2L - Missing blue plug

  1. Winterizing 2015 Raptor 6.2L - Missing blue plug

    New owner of a 2105 RZR. I'm winterizing the Raptor 6.2L motor and there is no blue drain plug on the U-shaped hose between the raw water pump and the transmission heat exchanger. The Indmar website is not working and I can't find the 2015 Raptor 400 manual anywhere.

    Anyone know if there is something I need to do in order to drain that U-shaped hose?

    Thanks.

  2. To get most of the water out of that U-shaped hose I took the cover off the raw water pump and disconnected a different hose at the top of the transmission cooler. I then blow some compressed air (low pressure) back through the disconnected hose. That forced most of the water out through raw water pump. There's probably still a little water at the bottom of that U but nothing I'm going to worry about.

    Some info here about some raptor engine not having exactly what Indmar shows in their lit.

  4. Yeah, I read that post late yesterday and figured my engine was a little different than shown in the manuals I had access to. My 2015 definitely does not have the blue plug in the raw water pump outlet hose shown as # 4 in this diagram:

    So like I said before I just disconnected another hose downstream, removed the cover from the raw water pump and blew a little air through the hose to push the water out through the pump housing. All good now.

  5. Better yet, the Indmar website is working again today so I downloaded the correct manual, and sure enough there's no blue plug in the raw water pump outlet hose. The manual states: "The water that may be retained in the rubber hose that connects the raw water pump to the transmission oil cooler can stay there." So there's my answer.
