You have vapor lock . Check the air hose from the tank make sure its not blocked or kinked. If air can't get into tank it make a vacuum and gas won'g flow to the carbs.

1982 yamaha maxim 650. Amount of oil to put in when do I do a oil change

Most bikes will take up to 3 qts, use only full synthetic motorcycle oil, in the 5 or 10w 30 weight, should be good. Put in 2 full qts then slowly add the third, but watch the level when you are pouring. Some will take just under 3 qts. Depends on the bike, clutch, etc. Hope this helps.

I have a 2002 Honda VT 1100 C2 Sabre and I just flushed all of the oil out of the pan and also changed out the filter. How many liters of motor oil do I have to put back into the reservois?

I have checked my service manual and it does not state quantities just top up the oil until the glass level is up to the mark. Don't forget the oil filter will take a little extra oil.

I'M TRYING TO CHANGE THE TRANSMISSION OIL AND CAN'T FIND THE DRAIN PLUG. CAN YOU HELP? Also a went to a bike shop who sold me gear oil GL-5 80/90W. It doesn't look or smell the same. Can you tell me if...

I don't know about the Hyosung, but most motorcycles, motor oil is the tranny oil, same thing. To drain the tranny, you drain the engine. My bike has a dry clutch, so it doesn't have any gear oil. But my Harley was different, it had 90 weight in the gear box and also had a dripper on the chain that would drop motor oil on the chain every couple minutes. Most people never change the gear oil. Most cars go for life without changing it. If you had a shaft drive rear end, it would be full of gear oil, Check it out. Hope this helps.

Needing oil

The oil tank on an FXRP is under the seat. Always add oil to the tank when the engine is at operating temp. You can check the oil when it cold and as long as you see oil on the dipstick, it's fine. Start the bike up and warm the engine before add oil though. Check the oil with the bike on the side stand. There are two marks on the dipstick. The upper mark is "FULL HOT" and the lower mark is "FULL COLD". Do not overfill.
