All the sudden there is no oil in mybike when there was a few minutes ago


This is not an all of a sudden event absent a big puddle of oil or big cloud of smoke, neither of which could you miss. Review the procedure to check the oil and recheck it. Bring it up to the proper level and watch it.

I have a 2002 hugger 883 i am getting fuel into the oil resivor tank.i change the oil and added the correct amount but started it up and it filled the resivor all the way up to the top andit smells like...


Sounds as if the float is not closing all the way and allowing gas to keep flowing threw the carb and is sitting in the cylinder and passing the rings and getting into the oil. try adjusting the float level. This is a command problem.

OIL CHANGE


Bob, I'll be glad to help. If the plug you took out was at the lowest point of the primary housing on the left side of the bike, you indeed drained the transmission and primary. They are both lubricated with the same oil. You need to put a quart of oil back into the primary through the inspection hole at the top of the primary cover. Use a Harley Davidson recommended fluid.

Now, to drain the oil, look for a large diameter hose that plugs onto the frame somewhere below the battery on the right hands side of the bike. They've usually got one of those hose clamps that take the "hose clamp pliers" to open. This will drain the oil. If you're still not sure, contact me directly at this address. wd4ity at bellsouth.net

Good luck and thanks for your service

I have a 1989 harley hugger we changed the oil and now when you start it the oil cap blew off and blew out oil what is wrong


Too much oil in the system now, Remove a half quart, see what happens. This is common on the Softails and Full Dressers too, when the recommended amount of oil is used. Trial and error through the years have dictated the use of either a 1/2 quart or more, less oil.

Hope this helps.

Oil filter change where is it and how to replace


It doesn't have a proper oil filter, for this reason you have to change the oil regularly (every 1000 to 2000 miles).

For information on how to change the oil try this link:

The honda xr125 and honda cg125 have the same engine. I have changed the oil several times on my xr125 and I can confirm that you follow the same procedure for both bikes. There is also an oil change demo on youtube for the cg125:
