Question about 2004 Honda CRF 250 R
Posted by Anonymous on
Hi, Anonymous many riders are over filling their oil system because they do not know how to properly read their oil site glass or dipstick. The following procedure works on nearly all 4 stroke engines but to be on the safe side you should refer to your owners manual. Use your center stand if you have one.
1. Bring the engine up to operating temperature or let idle for 5 minutes.
2. Turn off your engine and let it sit for 2 minutes, this will allow the oil from the top end to drain to the bottom.
3. Hold your bike straight up or on the center stand and wait 2 minutes for the oil in the bottom of the engine to be level in the sight glass or on the dipstick.
4. Your oil level should be between the top full mark and the bottom add mark.
5. Never over fill your oil system it will cause problems:
a. oil leaking out of exhaust pipes.
b. oil leaking out of breather pipe/hose.
c. oil carryover into the air cleaner.
6. Your oil site glass must "NEVER" be completely full or empty drain or add oil as necessary.
7. Your oil dipstick must "NEVER" be over the full mark and should never be below the add mark drain or add oil as needed.

The oil filler hole cap has an oil dipstick. Fill to mid range on the dipstick, about 2 quarts, just watch the dipstick. By the way, do not screw the dipstick in when checking oil level. Your bike does not have an oil filter. 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.

You Should Always Fill Up The Oil Tank When You Put Oil In It, There Should Be A Couple Of Tubes Hanging From Your Bike And You Will Have To Loosen A Nut At The Top And That Will Release The Oil

When checking your oil on a Honda, be sure the cycle is upright and level. Insert the dipstick until it stops but do not screw it in. You can use any motorcycle oil that has the JASO MA rating. Other motorcycle brands with the JASO MA rating for transmission gears and wet clutches will work fine. If you would like to try an inexpensive oil, Shell Rotella T Sythetic 15w-40 sells for around $22 per gallon (a significant price savings over cycle brand oils) and can be purchased at Walmart and most auto stores. Happy Trails.
