What is the oil fill hole in front of my gas tank on my 1991 Suzuki dr350 for


Your bike has motor oil stored in the frame instead of a " tank". there is a frame drain located at the lower portion of the front downtube of the frame and the engine. If you are changing the oil you should drain both the engine and the frame and then re-fill. since you bike has two pumps, one to feed the motor and one to push the oil back to the frame, you need to add some oil and then run the bike for 30 seconds or so. After you have run the bike for 30 seconds check the oil in the frame and add as needed.

thanks and I hope that this helps.

How to add coolant vulcan 500 en


If this bike has a coolant jug on right side hidden behind a chrome cover, you can add coolant there by taking that cover off and there should be a rubber plug on top to take out. If no jug, you will probably have to take fuel tank off and fill through radiator cap.

Winter storage


If your brake fluid is in need of changing, do so before long-term storage. Similarly, hydraulic clutch fluid should be changed before you store your bike; both systems may suffer failure if moisture gets in. Also make sure your coolant is fresh, as deposits can form from old fluid. For service intervals, consult your owner's manual.

Oil change question


motor and tranny filters and so on. I was looking through my manual on SMJ and on here regarding the amount of fluid to refill in the crank case and from what I have read I am coming up with 1.6 quarts according to the board. However when I follow the instructions for refilling I end up with about 875cc or approx 3/4 of a quarts in the frame spar/motor and about the same in the tranny. I am using Mobil 1 4T in the motor and Spetra Gold gear saver in the tranny (80W). Am I doing something wrong or is it supposed to be 1.6 quarts total in the bike (motor and tranny)? When draining the fluids I drain all the ports and clean all the filter completely. The first time I filled the frame spar back up I filled it until it came up about halfway in the frame spar ran the bike for a minute and after it settled for about 5 mins filled it back to the half way mark in the sight glass. This totaled 875cc. The next day I saw the oil didnt appear in the site glass so I filled it again. Needless to say it started spitting oil out the vent tube on the way to work so I read up on it and found that I had probably over filled. The instructions I read though stated to fill the frame spar with 1 quart, start the bike and let it sit. When I went ahead and changed the oil again and refilled it I followed this method and again it was too full (over the top of the site glass). Can someone clarify for me the proceedure. The tranny is pretty straight forward but the motor seems to be a bit more complicated. As of right now I have the oil filled with about 875cc and when it starts up the oil comes up in the frame spar about half way into the site glass. ,Don't feel like your the only guy. Overfilling has happened to just about every owner in some way or another until they learn the trick to checking the oil. I have never had less than 1 qt doing oil changes. It's always somewhere around 1.2 to 1.4 What I do is I lean the bike over to the left and then back to the right to help get most of the oil out. And I let it drip for a long while. When I refill the engine I always add 1 full quart then start the engine for a few seconds and stop it. Then I top it off to the sight glass. The rule of thumb being, never go by what the sight glass says if the bike has been sitting more than 10 minutes. Always check the oil right after you start the motor and shut the engine off. Reason being, the oil will drain out of the frame slowly over time so it makes the sight glass inaccurate the longer the bike sits. And every bike is different in how quickly the oil drains out of the frame. _________________ ,,,
