    Meanwhile, drain the dirty oil that's been in there for who knows how long. Then see which sight glass is empty after draining. This should make it clear which one you need to read for refill. Make sense??? Git R Done

    Log in and register your own profile at There are chat forums for different brands of bikes. I looked at the Yamaha guys' postings and most have newer stuff, but they make a new bike that evolved from yours. You should be able chat with those guys, and find one who used to have your model when it was newer. These guys trade bikes all the time when the faster ones come out, so someone will remember yours. Be sure to register and create an I.D. on there so you get full access. It's free. Have fun, it's a cool website. Todd

How to check my oil level on my 94 fzr 600 theres no sight glass

there should be a dipstick on the oil filler cap, if not you have the wrong cap and a replacement needs to be bought.

alternativly, if you know exactly how much oil it takes, drain all oil out. and put the exact amount in.

How do I check the oil level on a 2005 yamaha royal star tour deluxe?

You should have a site glass on the side of the motor down low along the frame rail. You will need to have the bike set strait up and down to get a reading so have a friend hold it up right for you. The oil level should be inbetween the top line and the bottom line that is on the case beside the site window.

I have a ??? about my 1990 yamaha fzr 1000

Buy four quarts, but plan on using just three. If you actually do change the filter, you will drain more oil. Not all the oil drains out if you leave the filter alone.

Once you drain the oil, your filter is replaced and your drain plug is tight, add two quarts, and check it as you add the third qt. a little at a time. If your bike has a sight glass, make sure you stand the bike up straight and centered, and wait a minute before you take the reading so the oil can get to the glass. (Some glasses require two people to read!)

If your engine just has a dipstick, check it as you add the third qt. Once you think you're in the operating range, put the cap on and run the engine for a minute. Kill it and check oil level once more to see if it dropped.

Have fun, and enjoy your new scooter! Let me know if we can help with other maintenance on the FZR. Later,
