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.

hi , two things to look at : 1- change your oil to a not so thick oil which could cause your problem . 2- your clutch could be too tight therefore needs to be relaxed to allow your kick start working

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.
