I topped the oil up after checking the oil level with the bike OFF the main stand and being held upright by my mate (as advised by the bike shop). Upon next taking the bike out it would barely do 60MPH (there was no oil/smoke coming out of either exhaust can) so I turned round and headed home a round trip of about 15 miles. As I had only topped up the oil and the bike was running fine before this, I decided to drain the oil and put some new in (this time measuring the 3.4L) is says it holds on the side of the engine. Allowing for some oil always to remain in the sump I got 3.0L in (but about 6.0L out)!! Bike now runs fine. However, will I have damaged the engine in the process? I've checked the airbox but there's no oil in there (relief) and the spark plugs are not 'gummed' up. Thanks in anticipation.,i dont think so. im assuming your crankcase vent routes to your airbox, as with the bies ive seen. hopefully someone else will come along and verify or correct me.,,,

How do i check oil on rieju marathon 450


Should be a dipstick up in front of the fuel
tank. These have oil in the frame and use
a dry sump oiling system. Run it for
a few minutes then check. Only holds about
1 litre of oil total so don't overfill.
It will only show oil on the dipstick after
running a bit as the oil needs to be pumped around
the system to be accurate on dipstick reading.

Cannot find a 2 prong oil pressure sending unit to replace an assumed bad unit on my 1994 Ultra with 40psi Gauge and idiot light. When on but not started Gauge reads zero, and idiot light is on. Start...


Hi Anonymous, start by checking oil level in tank and it is between the add and full mark. With engine at normal operating temperature 180-230 degrees and the use of a 10 micron synthetic media oil filter, oil pressure will be 30-38 psi at 2,000 RPM and 3-5 psi. at idle. The oil pressure light is designed to come on at 2 psi. or less. To accurately test oil pressure remove oil pressure sending unit and install known good oil pressure gauge that reads 0-50, there might possibly be some plumbing required for hard to access points. If you are out in the middle of nowhere and there is no cell phone service and your oil pressure gauge isn't working and your oil pressure light is burned out, despair not, you still have one last line of defense left HYDRAULIC LIFTERS.as long as those tireless workers are quiet, you have oil pressure, maybe not much, but enough to get you down the road at a slow to moderate speed using the least amount of RPMS as nessary. Good luck

I put in a fuel sender gauge in my softail deluxe and the fuel gauge is reading lower than before. I think it might be the floater, Any thoughts?


I think you're correct in your assumption. It may read differently but is it accurate? That's the question. Since the sending unit is so difficult to get into the tank. sometimes the arm gets bent resulting in an erronous reading. You can try bending the arm but it may take several trys to get it as close as you'd like.

Good Luck

How much oil does a yamaha yzf r1 2007 take


"most" bikes on average without filter change take anywhere from 2.8 to 3.0 qts. I always purchase 4 quarts because an extra one will always come in handy in the future anyway. First your bike i believe has a sight gauge... First stand the bike upright on a stand or have someone hold it up for you pour in 2 and 1/2 quarts, put fill cap on, start bike, let warm up for about a minute to let the oil settle, then turn off and then start pouring in slowly till it gets to a little above 3/4 full on the sight gauge...you never want to overfill it could cause engine damage. Now just remember how much oil you put in and that is the approx. amount.

Easiest or best way to add an oil pressure gauge to an 88 harley 883 sportster..


to add an oil pressure gauge, you'll need to put the pressure pickup tube at the same place where the oil pressure sending unit is now.

I've seen oil pressure gauges on Big Twins but I don't recall seeing one on a Sportster. I guess I ought to warn you that installing an oil pressure gauge on a Harley engine can cause you to have a heart attack. Why? Because when the engine is idling hot, it has very little oil pressure. The oil pressure sending unit is designed to turn the oil pressure light off at four, yes I said four pounds of oil pressure. The Harley engine is a high volume low pressure system. The reason for this is because it has roller bearings on the crankpin, not shell bearings like *** bikes. So, unless you get an extremely accurate gauge, when your bike is idling on a hot summer day, your gauge will read zero.

Besides, you have the best oil pressure gauge one could ask for in that engine. They're called hydraulic tappets. If you lose oil pressure, they'll let you know very quickly. They'll rattle so loudly that you'll be forced to turn the ignition off.
