Question about 2006 Yamaha XT 125 X
Get yourself a good quality tool kit/socket set, in your case for this bike a metric one. Good quality oil (or change sooner, 1500-2500 miles, try Morrisons 10/40), oil filter (every second change), paddock stand, a bin bag and two old 5 litre oil containers. Take one of the containers and cut a 'window' out of one side and place it under the bike and sump, with the bin bag under the oil tin. Level the bike on the stand Warm up the engine and after making sure you can take off the oil top up cap, remove the oil drain bolt (with the correct/tight fitting socket) in the sump (bottom of the engine). Keep upward pressure on it as it gets to the end and make sure any washer fitted comes with the bolt. Allow the oil to drain into your adapted oil container which you've placed under the bolt hole. If your changing the filter now is the time to do it, remember oil will still be in here too so catch as much as you can in your container. Once the oil has drained put the bolt back on (not too tight) and fill to the correct level as indicated in the sight glass or dipstick. Whilst keeping your container level pour the oil into your second 5 litre can (and when full take that to be recycled).
