Question about 2001 Yamaha SR 125
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.
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
