How many litres of oil does a 2007 Yamaha Roadliner take?? Thanks Guy

The manual says that the bike holds 5.18 US quarts WITH a filter change. I change the filter with every oil change. If you don't intend to remove the filter, make sure you know your fluid capacities.

The instruction calls for putting in half the oil - 2.6 quarts - into the bike (make sure you replace the filler cap!), starting the bike and giving it a few revs to circulate the oil. Shut off the bike and add the rest of the oil.

Keep oil off of bike while changing oil filter

On most sport bikes, well any bike, the oil filter is always right over parts of the bike that you don't want or need oil all over. I found that the box your oil filter comes in act as great to keep this from happening, open the box up so it's flat tear off the side flaps fold it in half long ways the put it under the oil filter so the oil runs down it and into your pan. always check that your o ring comes out with the old filter and double gasket will leck. oil the oil gasket to help keep it from sticking when you remove it the next change.

Done oil change & filter, now engine is presurizing & comming out air filter can you help

An incorrect oil filter might cause increased pressurization but not likely oil out of air cleaner BUT, need to know what type of bike/engine you have etc. In some cases oil with too great a viscosity might not separate properly in a breather system and therefore overwhelm the engine breather/oil separation system and come out the breather BUT again would depend on the engine and breather system so no generic answer will do and one needs to know what bike/engine system you have to be anymore helpful or definitive. Crankcase must be able to breathe properly or it will over pressurize and force air and oil out somewhere.

03 yzf 250f how to change oil

This engine holds one quart of standard Yamaha YZ 250 engine oil. The oil filter is located on the rear of the crankcase behind the suspension spring. The oil filter looks like a small metal can that is screwed into the top rear of the crankcase. On the bottom of the crankcase is the plug that will need to be removed to drain the oil from the crankcase. Anyone who owns this model dirt bike can complete this job in about 10 minutes.

Oil change?

The Filter is on the front, bottom of the engine. It will be tight to get off and must be screwed back on tightly or it will leak.

Oil drain plug is at the rear of the engine, facing backwards.

Oil filling is under the RHS rear chrome cover, two hex socket screws to undo.

C90 takes about 4.5 litres to fill with an oil filter change, 4 litres if you dont cange the filter.

After refilling make sure to hold your bike upright and check the sightglass under the filler. Oil level should be between the markings on the housing.

I have a 2000 tw200 yamaha and Im not getting oil pressure up from the base.I took the oil filter out and started the bike and no oil out of there. There is oil in the bike.Don't know if its the oil pump...

hi gwfu,

tw's are great bike, just have to make sure it is on a tip top shape. you are correct, you may want to check on the pump because if there is no oil going to the filter, then the pump is at fault or the flow of oil from and to the pump may be blocked.

you may also want to check on your seals and gaskets as this may also cause pressure drops.

hope this helps.

best regards,

Hi. If they are standard exhausts - yes I am sure the filter comes straight off. The oil filter equvalents are listed in the members area. Hope that helps
