Question about Motorcycles
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

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

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

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

On the right side of the motorcycle, just behind the engine cover is a crome curved cover. Under the cover is the coolent inlet. The oil level sight glass is under same engine cover. Your exhaust pipe man be blocking your view.
