Rev XP Chain Case Maintenance

Question:

Dear Motorhead,

I currently own a 2005 REv MXZ 800 and I’m interested in the new Rev XP. The one thing I am really impressed with on my ’05 is the ease of changing the chain case oil. It is a 10 minute job and the only tool needed is an allen wrench.

Do you know if this is the same on the new 08 models?

Response:

Thanks for your email!

I’ve got to admit – I’ve never had a reader make chain case service a priority in a purchase decision. This leads me to believe you are a technical owner.

Here’s what I know. The XP while very compact and rationalized in every way is also a very simple design.

The case looks accessible but honestly, I haven’t had one apart – yet. I agree – the old Rev was easy to work on from a chain standpoint but plug service and carb work were not exactly fun.

I think the new XP will be tight in these areas of owner service as well.

Hope this helps!

Motorhead Mark
