For any 2 stoke motocross bike you can get specific two stroke gear oils from bike shop or simular just make sure it is motor bike specific as your clutch depends on it... as for brand and weights not so important just change regularly and use motorbike specific two stroke gear oil and will be just fine. I always use Bellray oils but its just personal preference and my local bike shop just happens to stock bellray products cheers mate
I don't think the '79 model had an oil filter. The '80 & '81 model had a bracket that had a filter between the rear cylinder and the oil tank. The 78 and earlier models had the drop in filter in the tank. I think you can put one on if you change the front engine brackets to '82 to early '84 models.
On the right side of the motor there should be a bolt with a crush washer behind it. Hold the bike straight, pull that bolt out and fill with oil slowly. Once a good solid amount of oil comes out, install that bolt with a new crush washer. Chaz- Moto DC
Hi, sounds like the friction & metal plates in the clutch are stuck together. Has the bike sat for a while? If so, the clutch might free up if you get it started, roll along and put it in first, then get through to 4-5 gear, and holding the clutch in, accelerate & back off the throttle. Sometimes this will free them up, but careful to do it somewhere large enough. If the right type & amount of oil are in the gearbox (4 stroke car or bike engine oil that doesn't have friction modifiers in it), take the oil fill plug out 7 use a light to look at the ckutch basket. If you can see it, you should be able to pull the lever and see the pressure plate move outwards slightly. Good glycol coolant should do the job, straight coolant should be fine around 500ml. Hope this helps :)
Hi, firstly look on left side near cylinder base for a cap !its not a bolt[way too big] & usually has a bar arrangement so you can get hold of & twist it!
dont mix oil brands! use a TOP quality oil
as its the only insurance you can apply to it!
[ cheap oil kills engines] use what you can afford! & stick with it!
get the bike started, hold the engine at a high idle. while holding the idle high, adjust the air fuel mixture screw until it sounds smooth. rev it up a few times and see if the engine is "snappier". let it return to an idle, then adjust the idle screw. it may take a few tries to get it right, just listen to the engine.. if this dont work, you may consider re-jetting the carb. hope this helps...
