Re: Where is the oil filter on a Yamaha XT 125?
If I recall correctly, this bike has a centrifical oil "filter". Not really a filter as commonly refered to but rather a hub about the size and shape of an eggshell cut in half. Oil flows through the filter and centrifical force forces heavy particals to the face of the hub. Particals build up on the face and are thus "removed" from the oil supply. This type of filter is usually on the end of the crankshaft. To clean the filter just scrape away the soft buildup and put the engine sidecase back into place.
If you take off the clutch cover and look to the bottom right of the engine you will see a black ruber strip. Pull this out and thats your oil filter. Unlike your usual filters you can just clean it and place back in.

hi buddy by the oil plug will be a number for example 70c /700cm2 this will mean 700ml or you can do it by looking at the oil sight glass should come 3/4 full but make sure you add more as the oil filter will be empty so that needs filling also remember before you drain the oil run the bike for 5 mins so the oil becomes thinner and all drains also dab some oil on the new oil filter seal buddy any more info get back to me
hi looking for parts?? try wemoto.com, they stock roadster parts, if you have hassle finding parts for the sachs 125 v-twin, just type in yamaha virago, as the sachs uses the same engine as the virago, ive found getting parts alot easyer this way..but do remember the sachs roadster and the yamaha virago have both been discontinued, i belive some time after 2003, so parts are harde to recover, also people who own old viragos tend to buy up all the parts. anyways i hope you find what your looking for, ride safe..
this time of year i put castrol 20W-50 4/T motorcycle oil. to check the oil level is checked by placing bike on center kick stand and looking into the site glass just below the starter and above the shift lever. level hould be about half way
Hi Pete! I used to have a Xt 500 and loved it to bits, the oil filler then and presumably now is on the right side of the engine by the kick start (If you have one) it is a large black plastic screw topped item which will unscrew (Anticlockwise) to reveal a long shaft (Dip stick). There you go! Remember to keep bike upright to check level? Any concerns please get back to me! Paul 'W' Onyer~Edson(:0) [#>< Please rate my effort!
