SOURCE: Need to set floats on an xj 700
with the float bowl off and holding the carb level, adjust the float where it is level and the jet is up enough to seal. float should be set then.

there is a sight glass about the size of a nickle directly below the filler plug ,oil level should be midway or close to the top,you should see the oil level in the glass window,if not you'll have to remove the cover and clean or replace the sight glass window....

Put your bike on the center stand. Inbetween your exhaust there is a bolt on the underside. Use a 14mm with an extender piece. Put a pan underneath, and unscrew the bolt all the way.Oil will drain. Above that there is a "shell" Its got fins on it. Thats your Oil filter. Unscrew that bolt, 12mm and remove Oil filter and spring and rod. Replace o ring with one that came with new filter. make sure its seated correctly. Install new filter, putting the rod and that spring in the correct place. Once she's finished draining, refill youtr crankcase with oil. Oil capacity is around 2.7 quarts. The place to fill is directly above your footpog on the brake side.
Most of XJ bikes uses 15w40, not bad if you use valvoline 20w50 4 stroke motorcycle oil.

SOURCE: oil capacity?
Should be 3.5 Liters / quarts with the filter change. Put in 3 liters then top up as needed to get the level to the top of the viewing window.
To check your oil, bike should be level, on it's center stand, engine should NOT be running!
Any oil viscosity between 10w30 and 20w50 will work just fine. Smaller numbers if the weather's cooler and/or you only do short rides. Bigger numbers for hot weather and longer rides.
