How to remove oil from a yamaha SR125

A friend of mine replaced the oil in my bike but filled it too full. I bought it second hand and the previous owner obviously did not change the oil regularly and so the sight glass is pretty difficult to see through. I have two questions... 1. how exactly do I remove the oil from the oil tank? I cant see what to do... 2. Is there a way of cleaning the sight glass?
please help. This is my first bike and I'm still learning. I don't know very much yet.
Thank you 
amalia

Hi Amalia
Not too hard to get the excess oil out. Easiest way is to tip the bike on its side with the oil fill bung out, and drain off some of the excess via there.  The only other way to do it is drop the oil entirely and start again with fresh oil(dont reuse it even though it is new). Gets really messy trying to put the sump drain bung back in with oil pouring everywhere. You also stand the risk of getting dirt into the engine, so i Dont recommend draining off the excess from underneath.   Dont run the bike with excess oil. The site glass is fitted from the inside of the casing, and is rather hard to clean. They get dirty from a build up of clutch friction material settling on the glass. You have to strip the motor down completely to do that. Hope that helps you solve your problem. Happy to answer any questions you may have. Riding bikes is so much fun...cept when it rains!!   regards robotek

Tip

1974 Yamaha dt360


My friend Dan and I have been working on vintage Yamaha's for over 10 years now. We know a good bit about different dt model's. We are not certified mechanics, so everything we know is from years of experience, and older generation riders experiences. My tip is about the Oil Pump that injects two stroke oil when you give it throttle. Last year i bought a near mint condition, 1974 Yamaha dt360. When overhauling the bike, my long time friend and riding partner Dan who owns about 5 different yamaha's, models from the late 60's the late 70's, suggested we disconnect the oil pump (clutch side) and drain all the oil out and pre mix the gas. Reasoning for this is he has heard numerous stories over the years about the pumps either seizing, or when you lay the bike over air bubbles can form which will then increase chances of the system not functioning properly causing the motor to seize. I kept mine installed on the bike, but disconnected the hose on the inside of the cover and drained all the old oil out, now I pre mix the gas. Thanks for reading.

Hi,i just bought this 04 v-star 650 ,where does the engine oil go and where is the full mark i see a black fill hole in the engine block ,but there is no fill stick or mark how do you know when it is...


Your best bet to address these questions and others you are going to have in the future, is to stop by your local Yamaha dealer and if you do not have one purchase the owners manual for your bike. It won't cost much and it will provide you with lots of information about your bike and scheduled maintance. Hope this helps.
