SOURCE: How to check the oil

OK to check oil level you have a little dip stick on the left hand side on the frame of bike just in front of the fuel tank to check this dip stick you need to start the bike and idle only (not rev up or ride) and you idle the motor for 2-3 minutes with the bike in upright position. then turn off motor keep in up right position and remove dip stick - wipe the stick clean then insert dip stick back in its hole (without screwing in) then remove it to see oil levels.
a good quality 20w-40 weight oil (motor bike specific) is a good choice but pretty much any decent oil from your motorcycle shop would be OK just discuss it with them when you purchase it I not sure what country you from but where I live our Yamaha shops sell Yamalube and this is perfect a bit pricey but for our favourate toy, it is worth it!
To fill the oil there is another plug on left hand side again at the front end of the motor you will see it is the only plug there that can be opened with fingers - you will need a funnel to fill cleanly as is pretty difficult to pour into it with out spilling otherwise?
Your bike holds only 1.2 liters (1200ml) of oil in total so if you not changing oil filter and completely emptying then oil lines, only add up to 1 liter for a simple oil dump and refill.
Hint for the day with oil is - On a MX bike the more often you replace the oil the longer it will last before needing repair I would always recommend changing oil either once a month or every 3 hours of riding use which ever comes first !
I am often told I am over cautious with this oil change strategy but I also have YZ450f 05 and a 2003 model and I have never had to rebuild because of break down or fault with motor
Maybe this is coincidental ? but then again - Maybe not ??
good luck hope this helps a little
regards Jamie

SOURCE: Were do you check oil level on yzf 450 2005 mod

Hi, If it is a 2 stroke engine you will not need to check oil level. Because the oil is in the mix already. If it is a 4 stroke there will be a black or gray screw type plug on the crankcase. It will also have a dip stick on it. Good luck.

When checking your oil on a Honda, be sure the cycle is upright and level. Insert the dipstick until it stops but do not screw it in. You can use any motorcycle oil that has the JASO MA rating. Other motorcycle brands with the JASO MA rating for transmission gears and wet clutches will work fine. If you would like to try an inexpensive oil, Shell Rotella T Sythetic 15w-40 sells for around $22 per gallon (a significant price savings over cycle brand oils) and can be purchased at Walmart and most auto stores. Happy Trails.

Honda foreman 2000 450 won't start but fires sometimes with electric start when letting off button but does nothing with the pull start. I have replaced the starter switch, went over the wire harness.


Hi, Christina and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel tank empty.
2. Fuel supply valve/petcock turned off.
3. Fouled spark plugs.
4. Engine flooded as a result of overuse of the enricher.
5. Vacuum hose to the fuel supply valve/petcock disconnected, broken, cracked, or pinched.
6. Fuel valve/petcock or filter clogged.
7. Severely discharged or damaged battery, you need 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a load test if necessary.
8. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
9. Loose or corroded wire connection at the coil, battery or plug between ignition sensor and module.
10.. Spark plug cables in bad condition and shorting, cable connections loose, or connected to the wrong cylinders.
11. Ignition timing incorrect due to a faulty ignition coil, ignition module or sensors (MAP, CMP, CKP, O2, TPS, ETP, IAC,or BAS).
12. Faulty neutral, clutch lever, or kickstand safety switch.
13. Faulty fuel pump fuse or relay.
14. Tilt sensor needs a reset.
