Check the wire(s) at the sending unit. If they are connected, try replacing the sending unit.

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: How to check the oil without dip stick or window

I've had an '06 and now '08 RMZ450 so I'm assuming the '05 is the same.
Run the bike until it's warm and then shut it off. Wait a couple of minutes and then halfway up the clutch cover is a level bolt. Remove the bolt and if the oil level is correct there should be a slight dribble of oil coming out of the bolt hole.

The engine oil - there is a sight window on the very lower left hand side of the engine, near the front. Make sure the bike is standing vertically (have someone hold it) and you want the oil level to be in the middle of the sight glass.

Hi there.
When you say Maint light stays on , if you mean oil pressure light etc then it could be either oil light switch or wire has come off or fuse or the wrong grade of oil if only comes on when hot.
So check on the maint list to see what should be done and then recheck what was done .

I have a green light and a red. what do they mean?

Red means that it has power. Green means the heating element is on. The green light will cycle on and off as the thermostat controls the temperature. Allow the iron to heat til the green light goes off before adding batter. Watch for steam coming from the iron. When the steam stops the waffle should be done. Keep track of the time that it takes to cook. Experiment with cooking time for the best results.

On my 93 Dodge Caravan ES 3.3L, when it comes to a stop and idles (at a light mostly) the check gauges light comes on. When the check gauges light comes on the oil gauge is at the bottom. When I tap...

Okay What it means is that the oil in your car is either low in level or the oil pressure at low revolutions is low. I highly recommend you to stop driving the car when this happen because you can internally damage the engine with a low oil or a low pressure of oil. Check the oil level first..make sure level is fine and oil looks good. Black and burned oil will give you a low oil pressure as well. If it happen that your car need a oil change. Make sure you get it done and see if the problem goes away. Very rarely oils pressure sensor goes bad but if oil is new and level is fine you can take the oil pressure sensor and connect a tester for a oil pressure. If this is not under the manufacturer specifications.. oil pump is worn out and you have to replace it for a new one.
Good luck and don't forget to rte me. Thanks

I want to know what is the optimum km range for changing engine oil in Honda Unicorn.

Optimum km range for changing oil in any bike should be 1000km or 6 months which ever comes first. The oil in a motor is designed not only for lubrication but also to keep the engine clean, if you leave oil in a motor for too long than you are lubricating your motor with dirty oil, oil also loses its viscosity to lubricate and that is why there is a time span. Both oil companies along with manufacturers have increased there oil change (servicing) intervals to some silly kilometre and time spams, sometimes common sense prevails. Use a good quality oil, no need to buy the top of the range and maintain your bike

Check oil light stays lit and engine knocks untill you get up to 45 mph...then light goes off and car sounds fine...i may have ran it dry a half a mile...replaced oil filter and oil pan

Check your oil level, if your oil level is good. Then you may have a bad oil pump and your going to have to tear the engine apart to replace it, but if you think you have done damage to the engine from running it dry of oil. Replace the engine, the cost will be cheaper to replace the engine with a used one from a salvage yard then to replace the bad oil pump in you engine since your bearings may be damaged.
Good luck and thank you for using Fixya, in the mean time you might get away with adding Lucas engine oil treatment.

Oil light comes on when you hit brakes, sometimes it stayes on

Adding engine oil you said no visible leak.
Your engine has oil consumption valve ga-ides worn out also when the piston rings worn out oil passes through in to the combustion ch amer.

You want to resolve the problem and you stop to adding engine oil do your engine ova howling means new piston with piston rings oil pump and engine bearing new valve guide then your engine is new no more oil to add.

No sound coming out of speakers when turned on

If you get absolutely no sound, not even a pop when changing the standby switch, this probably means the rectifier OR the switch has failed. The red light just means power is getting to the power transformer... probably fuse is OK.
