How many quarts does the 1982 Yamaha XJ-750 maxim take to do an oil change? I did change the oil filter too! Also, do you know where I can get an owner's manual?

I have an 85 700 maxim so I should think they are about the same. It's not hard as long as your exhaust is not in the way, I can't remember I change the standard exhaust a long time ago. The drain bung should be between the second and third down pipe on the underside of the engine, loosen anticlock and drain oil into something with at least 1-gallon capacity. The filter (on mine anyway) sticks out from the front of the engine at the bottom again between the two middle down pipes, as far as I remember a 10mm(3/8) socket or spanner will take the casing of to allow you to change it, well worth doing at the same time as the oil (no point putting fresh oil through a dirty filter). So when you're new filter is on and your drain bung back in put the bike on the centerstand on level ground and fill to the mark with fresh oil. Then start the bike and allow it to idle for a few minutes. Stop bike. Check oil level after 10 mins or so and top up to the level again as your filter should now be filled also and will leave a little less in the sump. If its no different don't worry just check it again after you have been for a ride just remember to give the oil time to settle back into the sump. The best time to check oil is before you start the bike from cold

Where do i put the transmition fluid

There should be a bung to undo on the right hand side of the engine, at the bottom of left side there should also be a window so you can see how much is in there, holding the bike level the fluid should be half way up the glass :) would just be normal oil rather than transmission fluid check with a manual. most engines just have engine oil :)

Bought a 2004 CBR600 RR how do i check and add oil

Oil should be changed every 2 to3K miles. Anytime i buy a used bike i drain the oil right away cause u never know what might be in there...I recommend Castrol Syntec Actevo 10-40 wt. motorcyle 4 qts...Put bike level on level ground and after you have drained oil and spun on a new filter...put in 2 qts...then check dipsticks (crisscroos marks on bottom of dipstick should be covered in oil when oil is full) slowly top off checking dipstick frequently so as not to overfill...proper dipstick check is to unscrew stick, wipe it off and reinsert without screwing it in, when oil is to top of crisscross you are full...My friends 2002 F4 has a sight glass NOT a dipstick so incase that's what you have watch oil level in sight glass (should be 1/2 to 3/4 full) Drainplug is under engine and is 17 mm...Good Luck to you friend....Tim

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!

How to remove oil from a yamaha SR125

Hi Amalia
Not too hard to get the excess oil out. Easiest way is to tip the bike on its side with the oil fill bung out, and drain off some of the excess via there.  The only other way to do it is drop the oil entirely and start again with fresh oil(dont reuse it even though it is new). Gets really messy trying to put the sump drain bung back in with oil pouring everywhere. You also stand the risk of getting dirt into the engine, so i Dont recommend draining off the excess from underneath.   Dont run the bike with excess oil. The site glass is fitted from the inside of the casing, and is rather hard to clean. They get dirty from a build up of clutch friction material settling on the glass. You have to strip the motor down completely to do that. Hope that helps you solve your problem. Happy to answer any questions you may have. Riding bikes is so much fun...cept when it rains!!   regards robotek

Stone Swing Arm Question

on the right-hand side. Extracted the bung and found some grey fluid in the tube smelling like gear oil. Checked the LHS but nothing there. No indication of a leak anywhere and no drips. Had a look in Guzziology but couldn't find anything relevant. Any explanation?1.) Don't drop the oil level in the gearbox. It won't make a skerrick of difference to the weep and there is a risk that too little oil will damage bearings and pinnions. 2.) The most likely source of the oil is not the gearbox but the bevelbox. The crownwheel iof the box acts as a centrifugal pump picking up oil in the biox and throwing it around. Some of this oil ends up being flung at the pinion bearings and works it's way through and up the swingarm. This is especially true on models that have either had their suspension lowered or are thrashed regularly for long distances heavily laden. It can eventually work it's way past the splines at the back of the UJ where it meets the shaft and then pools in the UJ housing or is flung around in a spray as the UJ spins and whips it up! When this happens some of it may well be ejected up the stub axle with the result that it will appear at the bung. 3.) If it *is* the gearbox leaking it is most likely NOT to be the seal but the o-ring beneath the speedo drive support washer on the output shaft that is leaking. The gearbox ISN'T pressurised in any real way expansion of the contents is taken care of by venting expanded air via a breather on the back of the box. Any leakage past either the seal or the o-ring will generally be very minor unless something serious has happened like the cage of the output shaft bearing has collapsed and punched it's way past the seal. If you check the gearboxl regularly and it isn't loosing more than 30-40ml between changes it's nothing to worry about. Loss out of the output shaft seal or o-ring simply ensures that the seals on the caps of the UJ trunnions will remain moist and soft and help prevent the bearings inside the caps from drying out. If you're losing more than that, (And it will end up in the bevelbox eventually after working it's way past splines and bearings.) it will show up as the bevelbox being grossly over-full when you remove the level inspection plug from it and a blurt of oil will run out. The fact that you mention that it is a 'Grey' fluid makes me think that it is most likely to be oil from the bevelbox as this should have moly in it and this will present as a 'Grey' colour in the oil as it seeps out. Unless you are experiencing any other *worrisome* symptoms I'd simply seal up tghe bung with a dab of silicone or some such to prevent the weepage and check the gearox and bevelbox oil levels regularaly for a few weeks to make sure you aren't getting a gross re-distribution of oil from gearbox to bevelbox. If it all checks out OK? Stop worrying. ,,,
