Question about 1992 Suzuki RGV 250 N

1 Answer

Oil I've got a Suzuki motorbike that needs new oil. Now the Clymer manual I have says it can take regular 10W-40 but several people have corrected this and said it must have the special oil for motorcycles since it's working on the transmission as well.

Standard automobile oil should work just fine. If the bike has a wet clutch (or maybe even if it doesn't), you should make sure that you get oil WITHOUT friction modifiers. There's a lot of conflicting information about which oil you should use in your bike. Many people say as long as you get an car oil with the right specs it will work fine. Others say you should get motorcycle-specific oil. Personally, I opted to pay the extra $2/quart for Mobil 1 motorcycle-specific oil because I couldn't find any regular automobile oil that I was sure would work.

Good morning : what type of synthetic oil should we use on the '84 XR200 trial bike, also do/will I need to be buying any gaskets to clean that oil screen then ? THANK~YOU ! no manual came with...


Your motorcycle comes from Honda usually with 10w-40 mineral base motorcycle oil. You can use any oil that is JASO MA certified motorcycle oil. 10w-40 for cold climate. 20w-50 for warm climate/touring. Automotive oils use different additives and may cause scoring in certain types of cam bearings. Do not use any oil that says " Energy Conserving " on the label . It will shorten the life of your wet clutch and transmission gears. If you choose Synthetic oils, they will help your bike run cooler and shift easier. If you want to try an inexpensive full synthetic oil that is JASO MA rated 15w-40 Shell Rotella T Synthetic fits the bill for about $4 to $6 a quart. All brands/manufacturers make a motorcycle oil. Some are very hard to find. Just make sure that the oil you pick has the JASO MA "Japanese Rating" to protect your motorcycle engine,clutch and transmission. If you change your oil regularly you should never have to clean the oil screen. The screen is only designed to pick up big pieces/chunks of metal, so unless there has been a catastrophic event in the motor there should be no debris to remove.

How do i change the oil...how much and what kind of oil do i use?


Manufacturer recommends "Suzuki Performance 4 Motor Oil". Actually, any SF or SG rated oil under the API service classification will suffice. 10W-40 is the recommended viscosity.

If you can not get 10W-40, the following are acceptable:

14 to 104 degrees F 20W-50
0 to 104 degrees F 15W-40 or 15W-50
-4 to 104 degrees F 10W-40 or 10W-50
-4 to 86 degrees F 10W-30


The Engine oil capacity on the VL 800 is:

3.2 U.S. Quarts (3000 ml) without a filter change

3.6 U.S. Quarts (3400 ml) with a filter change.


You are going to need a motorcycle lifting jack stand or similar device to properly accomplish the oil change. Before you start, locate the oil filter on the front side of the engine, between the engine block and the radiator. Read and copy down the number on the filter. The OEM filter is a Suzuki 16510-03G00-X07, I think.

Start raising the bike on the stand until level, then strap it securely to the stand. Put an oil catch pan/can, etc under the drain plug, which is on the bottom of the engine. Remove the drain plug and catch all the oil. Remove the oil filter. Before installing the new filter, lubricate the rubber gasket with a little of the old oil. Install the new filter, re-install the drain plug tightly and then fill with the above specified type and amount of oil.

There are a number of different places that will accept waste oil for recycling.

God bless and good luck!

SV650S Alternative Engine Oil


Suzuki recommends the use of SUZUKI PERFORMANCE 4 MOTOR OIL or an oil which is rated SF or SG under the API (American Petroleum Institute) classification system. The viscosity rating should be SAE 10W-40. If an SAE 10W-40 oil is not available, select an alternative according to the information below: -4°F - 86°F: 10W-30 -4°F - 104°F+: 10W-40, 10W-50 6°F - 104°F+: 15W-40, 15W-50 14°F - 104°F+: 20W-50 Engine life depends on oil amount and quality. Daily oil level checks and periodic changes are two of the most important maintenance itmes to be performed.
