Question about 2003 HM Motard 450 F

1 Answer

Biek want more oil

So I changed the oil on my 84 motard 450F last night and my Clymers tells me that the motor wants 2.5 litres of oil. I gave it 2.5 litres and then ran the bike for a minute or so. The oil level on the dipstick only registers to the midpoint on the cross hatched oil level indicator. Is this and indication of a rebuilt motor? Should I add more oil? I should also point out that I checked immediatley after changing the oil and again this mornin' with the idea that more oil may have drained down from the top end of the motor. I followed the book's instructions for checking oil

With the dip stick unscrewed and resting on the top of the fill hole. Kinda curious about what to do. Thanks all.Was that with or without the filter change? It's possible that you are checking the spec for not having changed the filter. A fresh filter will require more oil. My $.02 - If it's in the marks, it's good to go.,,,

I have a yz 450f and there is no sight window or dip stick even were u put the oil in how do i no how much oil to put in it or even to check the oil ?


there should be a dip stick, depending on the model there are a couple of places it could be, up on the frame or hanging off the fill cap, yours may have broken off.
They hold aprox 1.1 litres, but you may need to buy a dip stick.

How much oil do i put in after changing the oil, and do i change it when the bike is hot, and there does the oil go.


Start the engine and warm to operating temp. and stop motor and place bike on a stand so it is level.
Drain oil into suitable container for disposal.
Let drain for 10 minutes.
Replace tank and frame drain plugs and refill with 1.2 litres of oil, 1.3 litres if changing filter. Capacity is 1.4 litres.
Oil filler cap is on the top left side front of the crankcase cover.
Run bike for a minute or so and let stand for 5 minutes. Take out dipstick (in front of left side of radiator shroud) and wipe clean. Place dipstick back in but do not turn in, take back out and read level. Adjust level as necessary.
The first site link below has diagrams in exploded view for your bike for assistance.
Alternatively, a free downloadable 35mb servicing manual is available, select motorcycle, type your model and year and download free.
Goodluck and cheers.

How many litters of oil do I put in my wr 450f yamaha


Use 20w40 motor oil in the summer. Use 10w30 in the winter. NEVER use synthetic lubricants or oils with "special" additives. They can mess up your clutch. Please rate my answer. Thanks

Was that with, or without, the filter change? It's possible that you are checking the spec for not having changed the filter. A fresh filter will require more oil. My $.02 - If it's in the marks, it's good to go.

Oil


Also check that bike is properly positioned. Is bike on level ground? With most bikes oil is checked on center stand or holding bike upright not on side stand. Also check manual some bikes say to check hot very few with cold motor. (many bikes with oil tanks will fill up crankcase and appear empty if checked cold especially after sitting for a long time) Most will say to wait a period of time after turning off motor (usually between 10 and 30 min.) but some say to check immediately after turning off. ,
