    Thanks for fast response, im not a mechanical expert, was just wondering which side of the engine it is located. Right (kickstart side) or left (sprocket side).

    Thanks again

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.

    It is located on the kick start side just forward of the clutch and on the end of the crankshaft. Bear in mind, it may be that no filter exists at all. Doing an oil change is also a way some of the smaller bikes manage to clean the oil. It has been a few years since I have worked on that engine and don't recall for sure which filter style is used.

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.

Mines was and the excess oil was blown into the air filter box and as a result contaminated the air filter. Spent today cleaning the filter box, carb and draining and changing oil, could not get a new air filter today so ran it without onebike runs like new!! New air filter will be here Monday!

The only oil that can leak from iside your engine is from the gearbox. There is no sump as the engine is lubricated by the oil fed in through the induction system. Clean the area thoroughly and leave it for a while(overnight) then check again. The oil could just be overfill from the 2-stroke tank. By cleaning it first you are given new evidence to identify the leak point. Hope this helps, when you have more info let me know.

Hello i have a aprillia sr50 and i brought it from brand new i ran the bike in for 300 miles and then i fully de-restricted the bike and placed a de-restricted exhaust on and a bigger jet and had the...

That looks like a REED VALVE leak.
If your 2 stroke kept coming out from the carb air intake and as you say that sometimes a back fire in the exhaust.

Check these....
  • Reed valve
  • Crank oil seal ( there might be air leak in the block )
  • Exhaust pipe ( might be already blocked )

Hope that helps you out!

In other words, you want to flush the theold out?
Drain the old, fill to proper level with20 weight oil and run it for five minutes then drain. Watch your oil pressure. Anything of the old still in there won't hurt a thing and will get dumped on next change. Oil cming out the exhsust is a two cycle thing and will exist if the mix is to much on the oil side.

My sons yamaha badger 1999 quad wont start . ive got spark . ive found oil in the air filter box

Oil in thew air box, if it cam from the engine is a sign of wear. Do a compression test to see if the engine isn't worn, and if you can, look at the valve .(If it's four stroke)
