If all the bolts are loose, you will need a crankcase splitter/puller.
You are going to struggle because you rode the bike without oil. This has probably caused some of the bearings to 'weld/melt' to the gear shafts.
I would suggest taking the motor to a qualified technician for slitting and inspection.
Don't forget to replace the crank seals when rebuilding.

I have a 2002 Toyota camery. After its last oil change its been leaking oil. I popped the hood and oil all everything. I check the dip stick and the level and its not bad, but its making a mess.

Check around the oil filter, it may not be tight or gasket is damaged. replace filter and top of oil. Or the drain plug is not tight or gasket is damaged. Tighten or replace.

How much oil and what kind 1982 yamaha vision

It will take about 2 quarts. Don't you have a owners manual with your motorcycle?

Drain the oil, replace the plug, add one quart. check the dip stick, slowly continue to fill until you get to the proper level as indicated on the dip stick.

If you have not made friends with the guy or gal at the Yamaha Parts Department, you should go do that now. They will be a great source of information to you in the future.

Find and use your owners manual.

Spark Plug Life


30,000 miles is about right for changing standard spark plugs. You can install upgraded (and more expensive) Iridium tipped plugs which are claimed to last up to 100,000 miles but on a standard vehicle 30,000 is the correct replacement mileage interval.

Stick to the vehicles recommended service schedule and never mind what your friend says! Afterall these service intervals are already designed for a vehicle running on unleaded!

Carbon build up on plugs has a lot more to do with correct oil and oil filter changes than unleaded fuel.

Hope this helps. Please do rate my answer
