let me know if you didn't get this done yet and have questions. I serviced my wife's RMK 700 today and found a puddle of oil on the garage floor. I just ordered the grommet and new filter online. After removal I noticed that it's a pretty cheap setup that needs replaced when it starts leaking. I thought the oil was coming from the chain case.
One thing to note is that you will probably have to remove the coils, and air box to get to a small screw that sets the tank from moving side to side. I can take pictures and post if you are having problems. Be sure to use a turkey baster and get all of the oil out. You can also remove the oil hose down on the pump like Bahnn suggested (you will have to anyway) and let is drain out into a pan. It's messy...
Let me know if you need some pic's. My tank is on the workbench as I type...
