There will be a number on the crank case by the place where you pour the oil in. It will be im millileters so you will need to convert or measure with mL, usually its about 650mL or so for 125s.

    650mL is roughly 2/3 of a quart.

I have a 92 Kawasaki 250 just got it but the thing is I Dnt know wht kind of oil to use for it

You must be more specific about exactly what model 250 you have. ie; KX, Ninja, KLR???? Also in which area does this oil go as in the KX, it would use a 2cycle oil in the gasoline premix and a transmission oil in the gearbox.

I see a few owners of Sportsters asking about oil leaking from the breather tube behind the oil tank. In tracing this vent it is attached to the cases a little behind the starter and above the clutch...

Hi John, make sure there are no obstructions in this vent line such as kinks or collapsed portion and that it is indeed the tansmission vent line if it is you can put an extention on it and run it to the ground away from the rear tire. Good luck.

I need 2 do oil changes on my 97 Dyna Low Rider. 1. Type and amount of oil for engine? 2. Type and amount of oil for clutch / transmission? Thanking you. Spy.

Your engine holds three quarts of oil, 20W50 petroleum or synthetic.

Your Primary holds about a quart of oil. Stand the bike straight up and fill up to the lower edge of the outer clutch basket through the derby cover access. Do not overfill or the clutch will drag. H-D primary and transmission lubricant.

Your Transmission holds 20-24 ounces of the same H-D primary and transmission lubricant. Stand the bike up straight, remove the plug from the chrome end on the right side of the transmission that takes a large hex key to remove. Level should be between the lines on the dipstick.

As for what brand of lubricant, there are many of them on the market that are sufficient to do the job. I stick with H-D lubricant for the primary and transmission. I like H-D, Mobil V-Twin, or Amsoil for the engine. Whatever brand you choose, check their website for suitability and their recommendations.

Good Luck

Oil quantity need for oil change on 05 fatboy engine transmission and primary

The engine take three quarts, the primary takes 38-44 ounces, and the transmission holds 20-24 ounces. Check the oil in the engine oil tank with the bike on the side stand. As long as the oil is between the lines, do not add oil. When you change the oil and filter, start the engine for 15 seconds and then check the oil. On the primary, stand the bike straight up. Remove the derby cover and fill the primary until the oil comes just up to the bottom of the outer clutch shell. Do not overfill. If you do, the clutch will drag and you will not be able to find neutral with the engine running. Check the transmission with the bike straight up as well. There is a dip stick on the plug where you add the oil. Make sure the oil level is between the lines.

Good Luck

I have a kawasaki KX250 motorcycle and there is oil in the radiator.

Check your engine and transmission oil for anti freeze. Also check to make sure your engine breather is not plugged. You probably have a leaking water pump seal , that is allowing oil to get into your anti freeze through the transmission. Normally when this happens the anti freeze goes into the transmission oil.
If there is no anti freeze in the lower engine or transmission , then the oil is leaking from a high pressure oil line going to the head to the cooling chambers filled with anti freeze. This means you probably need to replace your head gasket on the motor. While you have the head off check to make sure that the head has not warped. If it is warped it may have to be machined back to flat or replaced.

WatNut must take out to change gear box oil

What you are looking for is a plug that has a hex(for allen wrench) in the middle. It should be on the bottom of the transmission, assuming this is a manual transmission.To refill a manual trans, after putting the drain plug back in, Remove the plug on the side of the trans. Same thing on the tool or the plug has a square head. You can use a crescent wrench on the square. Fill the trans thrrough the side hole with the proper oil. Proper level is aproximately 1/8" from bottom of threads of hole Put you pinky in in the hole straight and push downward until the tip of your finger touches oil. Keep your finger straight. Theskin/meat on your finger will give about 1/8" as you press down. That done, chk both plugs and you're done.
If this is an automatic trans, the pan needs to be taken down to change oil. Good Luck.

Kawasaki KX125 1999 What grade of transmission oil is best? 80W or 10W30. Does it matter? Thanks

The transmission does not take separate oil. The engine oil also lubricates the transmission. This is why you do not use oil marked "energy conserving", and why they market special motorcycle oils. 10w30 is fine for your engine.
