Hi! Have you found the sight/inspection glass near or around the oil filler or clutch cover? it is a small round piece of glass with two level bars half way up the side. After draining the oil (10/40 15/40) synthetic's best.
Keep the bike upright and slowly fill with oil watching the sight glass(Possibly with a torch) until it comes half way up then your done. Other than that if your oil cap is the type with dipstick/level carefully do the same as above until required level is shown on stick.
Good luck!
Hope this helps.

What oil weight is best for a 1996 yz 250?

Calls for 10w30. Any brand mc specific oil will do, along with any of the more expensive brands. If you need to go cheap, buy Type F (only)automatic transmission fluid. Change as soon as oil looks dark.

Oil is in stator area and i wonder if its normal for a kawasaki 250 kz 4cycle motor to do that

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

To my understanding, yes as it lubricates the shaft/bearing and help cool the windings of the stator.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

Audi tt 3.2 quattro oil filter change

The insert or cartridge filters are easy to change..You must jack up the front of the car, remove the engine belly pan. in the front of the motor there is a black cylindrical housing for the oil filter cartridge..On the bottom is a cap that just screws off..Unscrew the cap, take it off, slide the old insert off, then slide the new one on..Screw the cap back on and voila! you are finished..If the insert came with a new rubber o-ring, make sure to replace the old one on the cap.
