You were supposed to put 4 ounces into the filter before installation to prime the system.

I have new pulsar 150 which run 2500 km's . I


Oil change intervals for motorcycles depend a great deal on your riding conditions and riding style. For lower-revving street bikes, I often change my oil about every 2000 miles (~3200 km). However, someone with a sport bike who regularly revs their engine closer to the redline, I would suggest a more frequent change interval. Off-road / dirt bikes should have their oil changed sooner because of the dusty conditions. The oil is still full of lubricants, but it is contaminated with dust and dirt that clogs the filter and eventually goes right into the engine, increasing wear. I can't offer much guidance for dirt bike oil change intervals.

How much oil does my bike hold it is a 83 suzuki gs750es.


as far as a exact amount i'm not sure, there is a oil glass on the right hand side engine cover near or on the clutch cover. there will be two lines right next to the top is full the bottom is the fill, after you drain the oil and fill, start the bike for a few sec to let the oil fill the filter after shutting the bike off let it sit before topping off this will let the oil run back to the pan so you dont over fill it. next to the fill plug on the bike for the oil there is most likely a set of numbers read something like this 2100cm 3, that is 2100 cc of oil you can get a ratio rite at any local bike shop. you can pick a service manual and get all final numbers.
Good luck my friend

How much oil do i put in my 02 426


Hi, here you go:

Oil capacity is the same as the 250.
1.5 ltrs at oil & filter/s change.
700mls to 1ltr without filter change.
This bike has what is called a dry sump. You fill your oil at the filler point that is located in front of the fuel tank on the frame. It uses the front frame tube as a container for the oil & pumps it back & forth to the motor. This bike has two oil filters.A cartridge type one located behind the small round cover held in place with two bolts that is located on the clutch cover.The other filter is a screen attatched to the spiggot which the hose from the frame(front bottom) slides over. Remove the hose(frame front bottom), undo the spiggot that the hose was attatched to,and as you pull it down to remove it you will see the fine wire screen that is attatched to it.
When you remove the oil filler plug(in front of the fuel tank)you'll notice it has a dipstick on it. When you fill the tank the oil level will seem high. Run the bike first(to let the oil circulate) then check the level on the dipstick. It will now be much lower. adjust the level to the correct level & away you go!
I recomend changing the the cartridge oil filter & cleaning the screen every time you change the oil. Use a high quality oil like Motul & change the oil regularly.
Also keep your air filter clean & oiled properly.


Good luck!!

Steps for an oil change on this bike 1986 yamaha maxim 700


Put your bike on the center stand. Inbetween your exhaust there is a bolt on the underside. Use a 14mm with an extender piece. Put a pan underneath, and unscrew the bolt all the way.Oil will drain. Above that there is a "shell" Its got fins on it. Thats your Oil filter. Unscrew that bolt, 12mm and remove Oil filter and spring and rod. Replace o ring with one that came with new filter. make sure its seated correctly. Install new filter, putting the rod and that spring in the correct place. Once she's finished draining, refill youtr crankcase with oil. Oil capacity is around 2.7 quarts. The place to fill is directly above your footpog on the brake side.

Most of XJ bikes uses 15w40, not bad if you use valvoline 20w50 4 stroke motorcycle oil.

How much oil I have to put inside the engine??


Most 900-1000cc sport bikes require 3.8 qts depending if you are also changing the oil filter or not (which I would recommend also if you do buy the filter pay the extra few $ for the Honda oil filter wrench that comes with the filter, it makes the allot easier and also works on all Honda models as well as most other model bikes with that style oil filter...but remember only a quarter turn past hand tight or so should do the trick, you don’t need to go crazy)...If you are not changing the filter it will take a little less...most likely around 3 qts depending oh how much is trapped in the oil filter sill

Buy 4 quarts. Put 3 in and run the bike for about a min or two at idle to let the oil circulate as well as heat up and expand. Then shut the bike off and let it sit for another 5 min, then if needed have a friend hold the bike upright or do it yourself if your confident (but don’t him or sit with weight on the seat or bike or it will affect ride height and in turn oil level)

Then add oil as needed, to fill it to just under the top of the 2 oil marks (leaving a little room for the still cool oil to expand)

Then make sure everything is clean and your oil drain bolt is tight and take it for a small 5 min test ride...then check the oil again.... and you should be just where you want it

Hi,


Verify Engine Oil Capacity according to model.
Check Oil Gauge.
Must change Oil filter at every Oil change.

Changing oil on 2003 electra glide


I don't blame you for wanting to do this yourself. Be sure to use a harley filter and harley oil.

Drain the oil, replace o ring on drain plug, replace drain plug, remove oil filter, fill oil filter with 20/50 harley davidson oil and replace filter being careful not to overtighten, fill oil tank with the bike upright to the fill line on the dipstick. Take the bike for a short ride and check the fluid level while warm.

Oil change


Check your owners manual for the location of the sump screw. If you don't have a center stand, or someone to help by holding the bike so it's straight up, you can put some wood under the kickstand later. It's best to do this with the engine slightly warm, so run it for a minute or so. Then loosen the oil filter and then open the sump screw, making sure you have a basin underneath to catch the oil. Take out and clean the sump screw and remove the old oil filter. Open the place to fill the oil too. When all the oil is drained, put a thin film of oil around the gasket on the new filter and screw it on following the instructions that come with the filter. Then replace and tighten the sump screw. Carefully fill the machine, being sure to not overfill. This is when you need the machine to be upright so you can check either the dipstick or sight glass. When you've filled to the correct level start the bike and make sure there are no leaks. Then check your level again. You should be good to go.
