Has the bike any oil in it? Can you see the level in the sight glass?

SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: How do you check the oil in a 2007 YZ450F? My bike

it has one on the oil filler plug if you have no sight glass on the side of you crank case cover. if your missing the dip stick simply buy a new dipstick. or you could check the amount of oil necessary for your bike (750-950ml) usually and drain your fluid and replace the oil with new fluid. measure it out in a measuring glass made for liquid. then your reassured you have full oil if your worried. be reminded tho that the oil lubricates your ****** as well as your wet clutch so either way oil is quite vital

WHERE IS THE( OIL DIP STICK) ON A 1980 HONDA 500CX


I have an old bike also, no dip-stick, but theres a sight glass on the right side of the engine, down low on the side case, you should put it on the center stand first and add oil slowly until you see the oil in the sight glass, only fill it 1//4 of the way, start bike, run for 30 second- to 1 minute the turn it off and check the level when it cools down again, add more oil slowly as needed but dont fill above halfway in the sight glass.

How do i check the oil because i just bought a 2009 suzuki bulevard but there dip stick? and the dealer ship didnt give me an owners manuel


On newer model bikes there is no dipstick, just a cap.
so to check the oil level, you need to look on the engine cover itself.
there will be a sight glass, with 2 hash marks on the case .
lower line is minimum, top line is maximun

If the sight glass is too dirty, warm up the bike and then change the oil and filter.
Then watch the sight glass as you fill the oil.

if bike is equipped with a center stand, always check oil on center stand.
if no center stand then check oil with bike on kickstand.

The sight glass will be either on the right side lower engine cover
or left side lower engine cover.
it it round and about the size of a quater.

Hope to be helpful.
best regards

Wheres the dip stick ????? i hope not riding the bike!!!


There is a sight-glass window on the right side of your bike. It's located near the ground in the middle of the bike. Hold the bike perfectly upright and the oil level should split the sight-glass right in the middle.

Hi,i just bought this 04 v-star 650 ,where does the engine oil go and where is the full mark i see a black fill hole in the engine block ,but there is no fill stick or mark how do you know when it is...


Your best bet to address these questions and others you are going to have in the future, is to stop by your local Yamaha dealer and if you do not have one purchase the owners manual for your bike. It won't cost much and it will provide you with lots of information about your bike and scheduled maintance. Hope this helps.

How to check oil on my bike


There are usually two methods to check the oil. One is a dipstick and the other is a sight-glass. You should have one or the other somewhere on the side of the engine crankcase. It should be fairly obvious and not require the removal of any body panels. If you can't find a dipstick in the side of the crankcase you will need to get down on your hands and knees and have a look for a sight-glass instead. This will be like a tiny window with a gauge against which you can check the level.
