IgOtCaNdYiNmYtRuCk: i have a question. i change my oil in my bike, set it somewhere between the high and low level (almost mid) then when i ride and after the bike cools, the oil level is way above the sightglass. whats going on? is this normal and how can i fix this problem. thanks!
OffroadBeaver: The check bolt should be a "random" bolt between the clutch cover and the water pump.
Jake Ditzenberger: awesome music haha
OffroadBeaver: Thanks, but i had relized this after i edited the video. So i put a caption over the original caption.
stix746: The transmission oil drain plug is slightly to the right of the engine oil plug right behind the shift lever.. Just sayin
FMX101: Lol cuz your gonna laugh I actually had to use your vid cuz its been so long since I've even touch my bike I've honestly forgot almost everything about the girl
OffroadBeaver: I change the oil every 15 hours.
OffroadBeaver: The bike would be well maintained then!
Dillon McNamara: I do mine every 3 rides...max. Usually every 2 rides.
OffroadBeaver: That would be atf. Auto transmission fluid.
jennylover456: i thought only automatic transmissions took transmissoin fluid
OffroadBeaver: What do you mean?
jennylover456: wait so is it an automatic trans?
OffroadBeaver: The engine side of the motor has a oil sight glass. You will need to fill the engine until the oil is visible about 3/4 of the way in the sight glass. Run the bike for about 3 minutes(make sure there is still oil in the transmission so nothing seizes). Then check again. For the transmission, it will say an amount on the clutch plate. I put in 700cc/mL of oil into the tranny.
djordje coric: how often to change oil ??
challeis1: how much oil needs to be put back in? please let me know.
lamaspanda: tks again, im using Castrol Sinthetic oil, 20w50 for the engine, and no im not replacing the oil filter. .... OFF TOPIC... how many tanks of gas should i use to accent the new piston and rings? i just put a weseco piston kit.
OffroadBeaver: What brand of oil do you plan on using? Are you going to replace the oil filter? I did some reading, and have a look behind the engine drain plug, there should be a plug for the transmition. In this video, it was the first time i had done an oil change. I will make a newer version of this video seeing as i got to get it ready for summer. P.S. me for any other questions you may have. Thanks for the comments!
lamaspanda: Tks man, yes mine is a 2002, and yes the engine side has the check glass, and in the transmission side yes it has a check bolt, what im thinking now is... for the engine, i used SAE 20W50, and for the Transmission which oil would be fine? In the manual it reads 10w40 is this like the 20w50?
tks for your help!
OffroadBeaver: The engine side should have a check glass. On the transmition side, there should be a check bolt. Also, on the clutch cover, there should be a number like 600cm squared. Make sure that the bike is on a stand or level ground. Are you planing on changing the filter. It was some were around 700 mL for the tranny side. You should ask your local dealer for more info. When in the movie i said the transmition drain bolt, that may be the check bolt as well.
lamaspanda: how much oil the engine uses? in both sides?
