Hi,

Initially, would have to agree with the diagnosis of you bike tech. Most Kawasaki water/coolant pump would be on the left side pretty near where the gear shift would be. I am just not sure if you can buy just the o-ring or oil seal, some versions comes as an assembly, pump/impeller/o-ring/seal.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Royal star xvz1300 '05 model - there are 4 hoses (look like breather hoses) behind engine. After riding the other day I noticed one had leaked a very small patch of oil. Not even sure what these hoses...


This tube comes from the Air Box. If the oil level is to high in the crankcase, the PVC port, which is located in between the "V" of the two cylinders is actually vacuuming the oil right out of the crankcase, and it is collecting in the air box. When enough oil collects in the air box, ti runs down the overflow tube, and drips out behind the rear wheel. To check the oil level, put a 2X4 under the side stand, make sure the bike is level, (a helper to steady the bike is a good idea here) look at the sight glass on the lower right side of the engine, down by the water pump. The oil level should be 1/2 way up the sight glass with the engine cold, and not running. If the oil level is higher than 1/2 way up, drain some of the oil out until you can see the oil level read 1/2 way on the sight glass. These engines only take a little over 3 qts. of oil with a new filter. If you are putting in 4 qts. of oil, it is too much.

How do i check the oil because i just bought a 2009 suzuki bulevard but there dip stick? and the dealer ship didnt give me an owners manuel


On newer model bikes there is no dipstick, just a cap.
so to check the oil level, you need to look on the engine cover itself.
there will be a sight glass, with 2 hash marks on the case .
lower line is minimum, top line is maximun

If the sight glass is too dirty, warm up the bike and then change the oil and filter.
Then watch the sight glass as you fill the oil.

if bike is equipped with a center stand, always check oil on center stand.
if no center stand then check oil with bike on kickstand.

The sight glass will be either on the right side lower engine cover
or left side lower engine cover.
it it round and about the size of a quater.

Hope to be helpful.
best regards

How much oil do i put in my 2004 yamaha yz250 2 stroke?


35 to 1 for fuel oil mix. if u r talking about crank case, i think 2 quarts, if there is a sight glass on side of cover, it should be right in center when bike is upright. If no sight and no leaks, just measure what you take out an add the exact same.

I replaced the old oil for BMW K1 motor, waiting for the oil level to show up in the sight glass. But this level never showed up to be seen! Twice I thougt I missed to mark, so twice I had removed all...


hi, if the oil level was correct before you changed it, then there is no reason that with the correct amount of oil the level will not show, some times the specific amount required doesnot fill up the engine as it was previously, if you still have the old oil measure the exact amount that came out of the engine, this should clear up any problem you are having, also tilt the machine slightly towards you if the oil is slightly low as you tilt the bike you should see it apeare in the glass, if is to high tilt it the opposit way and the level will go down check again

I need to know how to do a correct oil level check?


On the right side of you motor, there will be a sight glass.
You will have to crouch very low, and possibly lay on the ground to see it.
The sight glass is in the right side cover towards the back and at the bottom.

If your oil is in need of changing and has turned dark in color(black). The sight glass isn't so visible when the oil is black.

Thats how you check the oil level with the bike off the kicksatnd and you holding it staight up, while looking at the sight glass.

Oil change


The sight glass should show oil whenever the bike is stationary and level, either hot or cold. The warm oil concept generally applies for the easy pouring or viscosity of the oil. Warm oil flows better and is easier to drain from sumps, hoses, radiator's etc. Warm oil will drain better from all areas of the engine to give a better indication of the total oil in the system. The sight glass is generally hi-lo levels from top to bottom. Cheers.

Checking oil & coolant level


On the right side of the motorcycle, just behind the engine cover is a crome curved cover. Under the cover is the coolent inlet. The oil level sight glass is under same engine cover. Your exhaust pipe man be blocking your view.

I dont know how much oil to put in when i change it?


It's between three & four quarts. After you change the oil & filter, put two quarts of oil in it, then look in the sight glass while the bike is standing straight up. Add oil 1/2 quart at a time until you see oil in that sight glass. Fill until the sight glass has oil at least over the center, but not all the way to the top.
