Question about Motorcycles

1 Answer

On a Piaggio X9 125CC scooter does the top up oil go in where the dipstick is or is there another bigger opening to pour oil into

The level at the dip-stick is low but I find it difficult to believe I have to pour the oil in the same small hole at the bottom where the dip-stick is. There's a cap by the right hand side of the handlebars but I'm not sure if this is for oil or some coolant (even brake fluid) and the manual doesn't explain. I'd appreciate any sensible advice thanks

SOURCE: Replace Drive Belt & Maybe Clutch on a Piaggio Liberty 150cc

hi Wayne, the drive belt shouldnt be to hard to replace, just remember the order of disasambly and install it the same way. And for the clutch assembly it would be recommended that you use a service manual, but if you have atleast a bit of experience and common sense and patience you should be able to do it with a manual, that is if you have the correct tools, clutches usualy require a special tool to be able to separate it from the main shaft, also pay attention to the torque specs and order... wish you luck, Alex

SOURCE: Oil Change to Honda CRF250r 2004

The left side is the ENGINE oil fill. The right side oil fill plug is THE TRANSMISSION oil. There are 2 separate drain plugs also. Honda sells an engine oil with moly HP4M that you should not put in the trans because it will cause clutch slippage. The best performance and protection for your bike is full synthetic engine oil with a dedicated gear oil in the transmission. Get yourself a manual so you will not be as confused

SOURCE: oil level YZ 125

Hello....for the crank case you will want to use Yamalube 4 (10w-30) or an equivalent SAE 10W-30 SE motor oil. There is not a dip stick on the bike, Need to measure teh oil in accordance with Yamaha specs. You will need to check the owners manual or contact the local dealer service department and should be able to tell you how much needs to be added. If you don't have good 1qt mix cup you can get one at a good motorcycle shop. These are very help full in accurately measuring your premix oil for the fuel as well. Hope this helps

Hi were do I pour the transmission oil for my mitsubishi V6 Magna 1997

There should be a dip stick where you pull it out to check your fluid level of the automatic transmission. You check it while the car is running and in park and warmed up. To put transmission fluid in, you would get a funnel to fit the opening of the dipstick hole. First take out dipstick, place funnel into the hole and pour the fluid into the funnel. Depending how low your level is, it will not take a lot to bring the level back up to normal. Pour some in and check level. DO NOT OVER FILL!

How do you change the oil on a 2011 sonata?

Changing the oil in a Hyundai Sonata is an easy task that should be performed every 3,000 miles. Follo the below steps to change the oil on your Hyundai Sonata:
1) Ensure the car is parked on a flat surface. Place a drain pan under the engine. Locate the oil pan directly under the engine. The oil pan will be at the very bottom. Now, unscrew the drain plug at the front of the oil pan with a socket wrench. Allow all the oil to drain out into the oil pan. Tighten the drain plug back into the oil pan with a socket wrench.
2) Locate the oil filter in front of the engine. There will be a cut-out in the protective shield where the oil filter is located. Unscrew the oil filter with a strap wrench. Allow the oil to drain into the oil pan. Place the old filter in with the waste oil.
3) Fill the oil filter with fresh engine oil. Screw the filter on to the filter housing by hand. Do not wrench tighten, which could strip the threads of the filter or filter housing. Open the hood for access to the engine compartment. Unscrew the oil cap on the top of the engine.
4) Pour in three quarts of engine oil. Pull the engine oil dipstick out of the dipstick tube and wipe it clean. Push the dipstick back into the dipstick tube. Pull back out and look at the engine oil level. If the oil on the dipstick does not stop between the two marks on the dipstick, pour in a half quart of oil and check the level again. Do not overfill.
5) Start the car and allow it to run for few minutes. Turn the car off and check the oil level once again. Add another half quart of oil if necessary. Ensure the oil cap is back on the engine and the hood is closed. Hope this helps and if you need any parts for your sonata, this site looks like it has cheap prices, free shipping and great reviews

Oil level light show

Check the oil level. engine off; open hood; pull dipstick; wipe with rag and replace. Then pull out again and read the oil level. If it is at the lowest acceptable level, you need to add one quart. If below that, add more. On the valve cover, there is a cap that comes off for you to pour the oil into. Add some oil, wait a few seconds, then check level again at the dipstick. Do not overfill.

Check your owners manual for which oil to use - normally will be 5W-30, but go with the manual's specification.

Engine oil type and quantity for 04 yamaha 225ttr

I use and recommend Castrol Syntec motorcycle oil 10-40wt for your bike. Should hold about 1 1/2 quarts. Buy 3 qts when your at the store, then youll have some for topping off. Start by pouring in 1 qt (after oil has been drained and new filter installed) then check dipstick w/ bike level on level ground. Keep adding a little at a time until dipstick registers full....Good Luck to you my friend....Tim

Where do i put the oil back in the bike after i drain the oil? drained the oil and now do not know where to replace this oil please help!

There is a dipstick near the top level of the radiator on the right side of the bike. Just remove the dipstick and pour in the fresh oil.
To check oil level, let the bike idle for three minutes then turn it off. Now use the dipstick to read the oil level.

Please rate this solution. Thanks Eagle!
