Look on right side engine cover/clutch cover, probably an oil level window there, small circular glass. oil quantity will be on cover probably as well, if it says 2,500 cc it's the oil qty not the engine size :))

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 you check the oil in a 2007 YZ450F? My bike doesn't have dip stick or sight glass? Should it have one?


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

How to check the oil levels on 2005 yz 450 f?? And what oil? And where to fill??


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

How many quarts of oil go in a 1980 honda cx500 motor cycle? and where should the oil level be on the dip stick? thanks, sladerivers@aol.com


i would suggest using a good 10w 40 engine oil and simply put the bike on the centre stand pouring in 2 litres to start thats if the bike has been drained empty then just top up little at a time untill oil is in the markers on the dip stick the bike will hold around the 3 litre mark from empty hope this helps

How do i check the oil level on a husqvarna te 510 2005


I have an 06 Husky TE510 and it uses a check bolt on the clutch side case not a dip stick. It works like a site glass only oil leaks out when the bike is level and there is enough oil in the case.

Can't find dip stick to check oil on suzuki motorcycle c90t


There is no dipstick on suzuki . Stand beside your bike and look on the bottom right side of your crankcase . look for a little site glass window . That is how you
check . if the oil is half way up the glass when you stand bike straight up . . change every 3000, plus filter

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.
