SOURCE: Oil level for Suzuki TS 185 (1989)

Drain the oil and put 750ml back into the gearbox. If your bike doesn't have a dipstick and you have good, clean oil in it, drain it into a plastic bowl then put it right back into the engine but measure it before you pour it back in. When you get 750ml in the box then look at the level in the box. That is the level to maintain.

Pleas rate this solution. Thanks!

Call your local dealer and have them run your vin( Vehicle Identification Number ) through HD Net to see if you have any outstanding recalls. There was a recall on the circuit breaker and the ignition switch around that time of production. better to be safe than sorry.

Kymco downtown 300i oil light stay on and won't start


Hi, Michael and the usual suspects are:
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Discharged battery, needs to be 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a load test if necessary.
4. Check the 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.
5. Tip over sensor needs a reset.
6. Faulty ignition switch.
7. Faulty starter button.
8. Faulty kickstand or clutch pull in switch/sensor.
9. Starter control circuit, relay, or solenoid faulty.

I have a kymco bug espresso 2005 model 150cc. about to do oil change and just read the bit in manual about gear oil. Does this scooter need that too?


Hi, Sonia excellent question it all depends on how long you have owned the scooter and it's mileage, engine oil needs to be changed every 2000 km or 1250 mi. gear oil needs to be changed every 4000 km or 2500 mi.I recommend 10w40 in a synthetic "motorcycle" (not automobile) engine oil if you can find it, Amsoil and Mobil1 are the best and for the rear differential, SAE 80w90 gear lube is recommended, for this scenario you will need your service/owners manual if you can't find the first and best tool you ever bought for your Kymco, despair not, for a mere $0 you can download another one.

My service light went on my tractor just after 25 hours of use.I put some oil in it. now I have a big cloud of grey smoke coming out of exhaust in front engine.


Your check engine/service light possibly came on to indicate a oil change due interval @ 25 hours.
Double check your engine oil level; it may be too full. If the oil level is over the full mark, drain off some of the oil in the engine so the crankcase oil level is between the add & full marks on the oil level dipstick. The grey smoke you're seeing is likely oil being burned off.
On a side note, I am assuming you replaced the engine oil with the same weight/viscosity oil that was previously in the engine or recommended by the manufacturer in your owner's manual.

How do i check oil level in 2000 artic cat 250 2 x 4 atv


1600ml is the Arctic Cat recommended amount BUT if you check the KYMCO manual (the '06 250 is a kymco made for AC) it says the capacity is 1600ml but when you change oil it is 1400ml. This might explain why my oil level always seems higher than it should be. You can check the level with the site glass on the side.

Also on the 250, you also have to change transmission fluid separately. It uses the gear oil NOT engine oil.

Just bought it used. no owner's manual. how do i check the oil level?


Here is the most accurate way to check the oil on your R-RT.

Ride bike till it is fully warmed up - 10 minutes
Park bike on side stand for 10 minutes or longer.... overnight.
Put bike on center stand and look at oil level window on lower left side of engine. Oil level should be inside the red circle. Do not overfill!!

The absolute best time to check the oil is when the engine is cold and all oil has drained out of oil cooler and lines into the engine sump. Usually before riding... Once properly broken in, your engine will consume very little oil.

Hi
The engine is heating up.
You need to change the engine oil.
This is a forced air cooled motorcycle... clean all open ports from where the air enters the engine.. this is located just under the seat / floor where you rest your foot.

Gear oil change


Somewhere on the bottom or bottom outside edge of the gearbox is a drain plug. Drain the oil and put the plug back in place. Somewhere on the top of the gearbox casing, including the left and right outer case covers, you will find a dipstick for checking the oil level. Fill via the dipstick hole. Some bikes don't have an actual dipstick but only have a top plug. Normally you will find it near the kick starter lever. When no dipstick is provided, they expect you to drain the old oil and then re-fill with the amount of oil specified for the bike. Use 10w40 motor oil. NEVER use synthetic oils. They can screw up the clutch.

I have KYMCO S 200 and need to know what needs serviceing at 300 miles. What type of oil to use in engine and gearbox and what type filter if needed.


At 300 miles the only thing you might want to do is check the gearbox oil level and then lube and adjust the chain. Check with the dealer on the filter type. As to what type of oil, use 10w40 motor oil in the gear box. Don't use any synthetic oils, oil marked "EC", or oil with "special" additives. Stick with the major brands; Pennzoil, Quaker State, Mobil or Shell. If in a hot area like Texas or New Mexico go with 20w50.
