    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.

I cant find the engine oil on my 2007 mountain lite can u tell me where it is? they didnt have the product on which product so just go with the one i typed

check at the manufacturers site for this info ... or if you really want to look try search service manual for your brand.

somewhere probably on the right hand side of your bike, there is a screw cap with a handle that looks sort of like a thumb screw. Undo it ... it it has oil on the botton, you found it.

hi looking for parts?? try, 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..

XT 125 oil problem

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!
