Which is in great condition for the age. I love the bike (which is set up for woods riding) but I'm not sure whats the best oil to use for optimal clutch protection. Any suggestions?I use Amsoil 0W-40 4 stroke engine oil. Its great for winter and has no clutch drag.,,

I am wondering if my 2003 yz 450f has separate transmission oil? if so what sort of oil should i replace it with??


no, the tranny oil is the same oil that lubs the top end....your thinking of a honda, honda has 2 differen fills....i would go with a 10w40 semi synthetic. that bike takes 1.2 liters (i still have my 03 yz450f, love that bike:) make sure you replace the oil filter also.

Need to know how to change oil in 2000 dyna low rider-what kind of oil to use and -how to change transmission fluid and what tranny fluid to use


There are two plugs on the bottom of the transmission, one for the engine oil, one for the tranny lube. The engine oil drain is the one that is closest to the left front corner of the oil pan. The other plug is the transmission.

The engine requires three quarts of oil, the tranny takes 20-24 ounces of oil.. Check the engine oil with the bike on the side stand. There are two marks on the dipstick. The upper mark is the "FULL HOT", the lower mark is the 'FULL COLD" mark. Keep the oil level between these two marks and do not overfill.

On the transmission, on the right side of the transmission, you'll see a chrome clutch release cover. It's behind the exhaust system. There is a plug that takes a 3/8" Allen or Hex key to remove. Check the oil level with the bike standing straight up.

As for what lubricants to use, I always use nothing but Harley-Davidson oil. 20W50 Syn 3 oil in the engine, transmission, and primary on 2000 and later model bikes. However, you can use other oils such as Amsoil, Royal Purple, Mobil, Motor Factory, and many others. Synthetic or petroleum based, your choice. Check the website of the manufacturer that you wish to use.

Good Luck

Sump oil


You can run Motor Oil in the Tranny or we run Automatic Transmission Oil in ours and we change it alot. We also run Lucas 2 Stroke Oil at 40:1. We run our Banshee and Yamaha Dirt Bikes on that also. Hope this helps.

I'M TRYING TO CHANGE THE TRANSMISSION OIL AND CAN'T FIND THE DRAIN PLUG. CAN YOU HELP? Also a went to a bike shop who sold me gear oil GL-5 80/90W. It doesn't look or smell the same. Can you tell me if...


I don't know about the Hyosung, but most motorcycles, motor oil is the tranny oil, same thing. To drain the tranny, you drain the engine. My bike has a dry clutch, so it doesn't have any gear oil. But my Harley was different, it had 90 weight in the gear box and also had a dripper on the chain that would drop motor oil on the chain every couple minutes. Most people never change the gear oil. Most cars go for life without changing it. If you had a shaft drive rear end, it would be full of gear oil, Check it out. Hope this helps.

transmission and engine share the same oil, so it is changed when you change the engine oil, and for that reason I change engine oil on my bike at 2 thousand mile interval.

Does my tw125 need gearbox oil, i maybe being thick here but i dont see anywhere to add it!!


the engine oil serves as the tranny oil for this bike as well as most other bikes. you should use a good grade 10/40 oil in there and change as required by your manufacturer.

2004 1200 XLR WHERES OIL PLUG AND TRANS PLUG


Damon, on the bottom the drain hose has a plug. Remove the plug to drain ENGINE oil. When done draining (takes a long time as it drains slowly), put the plug back in and add oil to the oil tank on right side of the bike (don't forget to change the oil filter too). Transmission/chaincase/clutch oil is drained by removing the plug from the bottom of the tranny case. Adding tranny oil is done through the clutch inspection cover or chain inspection cover on the left side of the bike using a funnel with a hose attached (sold in aoutoparts stores everywhere). Tranny oil and engine oil are not the same! I would use Sportrans or HD tranny oil for that instead of 20W50 in the tranny. Add no more than 28 oz. If you add the whole quart (32 oz) you will have hard time finding neutral as the case will be over-filled. If you take the clutch inspection cover (a.k.a. derby cover) off, make sure the bike is not leaning on the kick stand but is upright or the proper amount of oil in the tranny will spill out. I put a brick under the kick stand and it centers the bike pretty well.

Good luck!

Oil change question


motor and tranny filters and so on. I was looking through my manual on SMJ and on here regarding the amount of fluid to refill in the crank case and from what I have read I am coming up with 1.6 quarts according to the board. However when I follow the instructions for refilling I end up with about 875cc or approx 3/4 of a quarts in the frame spar/motor and about the same in the tranny. I am using Mobil 1 4T in the motor and Spetra Gold gear saver in the tranny (80W). Am I doing something wrong or is it supposed to be 1.6 quarts total in the bike (motor and tranny)? When draining the fluids I drain all the ports and clean all the filter completely. The first time I filled the frame spar back up I filled it until it came up about halfway in the frame spar ran the bike for a minute and after it settled for about 5 mins filled it back to the half way mark in the sight glass. This totaled 875cc. The next day I saw the oil didnt appear in the site glass so I filled it again. Needless to say it started spitting oil out the vent tube on the way to work so I read up on it and found that I had probably over filled. The instructions I read though stated to fill the frame spar with 1 quart, start the bike and let it sit. When I went ahead and changed the oil again and refilled it I followed this method and again it was too full (over the top of the site glass). Can someone clarify for me the proceedure. The tranny is pretty straight forward but the motor seems to be a bit more complicated. As of right now I have the oil filled with about 875cc and when it starts up the oil comes up in the frame spar about half way into the site glass. ,Don't feel like your the only guy. Overfilling has happened to just about every owner in some way or another until they learn the trick to checking the oil. I have never had less than 1 qt doing oil changes. It's always somewhere around 1.2 to 1.4 What I do is I lean the bike over to the left and then back to the right to help get most of the oil out. And I let it drip for a long while. When I refill the engine I always add 1 full quart then start the engine for a few seconds and stop it. Then I top it off to the sight glass. The rule of thumb being, never go by what the sight glass says if the bike has been sitting more than 10 minutes. Always check the oil right after you start the motor and shut the engine off. Reason being, the oil will drain out of the frame slowly over time so it makes the sight glass inaccurate the longer the bike sits. And every bike is different in how quickly the oil drains out of the frame. _________________ ,,,
