SOURCE: oil change 1999H D Electra glide

The plug ( 3/4 wrench ) under the trans when your looking at the trans cover ( right side of the bike ) is the trans. If you drained that replace it with 24 oz. of either HD trans fluid or I prefer Golden Spectro 75/140 ( much better shifting on a Harley ( trust me you'll never go back to HD trans fluid ) the drain for your motor oils is on the same pan ( on the bottom ) but it's the plug facing the front of the bike. Looks just like the trans plug. Both use a 11105 o ring which you should replace everytime ( just for piece of mind as well as leaks ) you need 4 quarts of 20/59 HD oil. Hope it helps.

SOURCE: yz450f that quit running

Yes, it does have an automatic decompression mechanism. It is a centrifugally operated mechanism and it is EXTREMELY unlikely that is causing your problems.
The two highest probabilities are:
1. Fouled spark plug. Forget what it looks like, put a BRAND NEW plug in. It is the cheapest form of diagnosis you can do. These bikes are terrible about fouling spark plugs and a fouled plug produces the exact symptoms you described.
2. Inspect your valve clearance. Tight valves will also make the bike hard/impossible to start with the kick starter. In some cases, it can be push started, but still won't kick. With tight valves, the bike, although hard starting, will run pretty good, for awhile. Eventually it will burn the valves and quit running though.
If your bike isn't kick starting fairly easily, something is wrong and needs to be addressed. The only other issue is making sure the idle speed is set per the service manual. These bikes have a fairly high idle, some as high as 1700 rpms. If it is set too low, it makes them hard to start too.

SOURCE: do i run the motor before pulling the dipstick

If we are talking about a 2004 YZ450F, you should always run the engine before taking an accurate dipstick check. This is a dry sump engine with the oil stored in the frame. The dipstick is located up high on the frame. You are not checking the oil level in the crankcase as the "Best Solution" dipstick suggested. In theory the oil is held up in thank when the engine is not running. However, most all of them have a tendency to have oil seep/leak out of the frame reservoir down into the crankcase. There is a check ball in the right crankcase cover that usually leaks if the engine has any hours on it at all. The dipstick up on the frame rarely reads accurate unless you have started the engine and let the oil pump circulate oil back up into the frame where it can be measured on the dipstick. Any mechanic who has had hands on experience knows this. The same is true for owners of dry sump XR's and Harleys, who all know to run the engine before final oil check. If you are going to to answer a tech question you need to have some experience with that model instead of your XR80.

How do you change the oil on a 2011 sonata?


Changing the oil in a Hyundai Sonata is an easy task that should be performed every 3,000 miles. Follo the below steps to change the oil on your Hyundai Sonata:
1) Ensure the car is parked on a flat surface. Place a drain pan under the engine. Locate the oil pan directly under the engine. The oil pan will be at the very bottom. Now, unscrew the drain plug at the front of the oil pan with a socket wrench. Allow all the oil to drain out into the oil pan. Tighten the drain plug back into the oil pan with a socket wrench.
2) Locate the oil filter in front of the engine. There will be a cut-out in the protective shield where the oil filter is located. Unscrew the oil filter with a strap wrench. Allow the oil to drain into the oil pan. Place the old filter in with the waste oil.
3) Fill the oil filter with fresh engine oil. Screw the filter on to the filter housing by hand. Do not wrench tighten, which could strip the threads of the filter or filter housing. Open the hood for access to the engine compartment. Unscrew the oil cap on the top of the engine.
4) Pour in three quarts of engine oil. Pull the engine oil dipstick out of the dipstick tube and wipe it clean. Push the dipstick back into the dipstick tube. Pull back out and look at the engine oil level. If the oil on the dipstick does not stop between the two marks on the dipstick, pour in a half quart of oil and check the level again. Do not overfill.
5) Start the car and allow it to run for few minutes. Turn the car off and check the oil level once again. Add another half quart of oil if necessary. Ensure the oil cap is back on the engine and the hood is closed. Hope this helps and if you need any parts for your sonata, this site looks like it has cheap prices, free shipping and great reviews http://www.buyautoparts.com/carmodels/Hyundai/Sonata.html

What is the oil capacity of the 2006 roadstar silverado?


The Road Star takes 4.3 qts which is 4.07 liters.

In my experience, MOST Yamaha engines have the oil capacity stamped either near the oil filler cap, or if it has one, near the fisheye inspection glass.

The best advice I have seen to date states the following: Having replaced and tightened the drain plug, remove the dipstick and puur in half the oil. Note that this bike has an oil tank, so having added 2 litres or so, put the dipstick back in and tighten it. Start the bike and allow it to run for around 15 seconds to allow the oil to pump from the oil tank to the engine crankcase. Shut the bike off and add the remaining oil before replacing the dipstick again and checking for leaks.

Hope this helps. Please rate this solution

Can not find a drain plug in the 500 series push mower


They are made to be drained out of the dipstick hole. Warm the engine up and stop it,remove the spark plug cap, remove the dipstick and tip the mower to that side while placing a container under the dipstick filler. After draining, right the mower,refill with correct oil and quantity and remit the sparkplug cap. Regards Phil

Hi the gsx will have the quantity of oil required embosed on the rh case next to the riders footrest. The quantity required
For all the gsx750 range, is 3.5 litres, 10W40 SG,
When the engine has been standing a while place the bike on a centre stand, or ask your good wife to sit on the bike and hold it uprite, then check the oil level by looking through the window you have found, and the level should be observed, higher than half full but not over the top mark, when replacing the oil and filter, it may take up to 4 litres to fill up to the mark after running and alowing the oil to settle

Could be that it needs to run, if you changed the oil filter also, you removed a full filter and put on an empty one. Could be that the often-present-on VW's plastic ring on the dip stick tube is broken, causing the dipstick to more fully insert. Check the specifications. Was the car parked differently? Uphile or downhill will cause a different reading, perhaps the before reading was inaccurate.

How much oil do i put in after changing the oil, and do i change it when the bike is hot, and there does the oil go.


Start the engine and warm to operating temp. and stop motor and place bike on a stand so it is level.
Drain oil into suitable container for disposal.
Let drain for 10 minutes.
Replace tank and frame drain plugs and refill with 1.2 litres of oil, 1.3 litres if changing filter. Capacity is 1.4 litres.
Oil filler cap is on the top left side front of the crankcase cover.
Run bike for a minute or so and let stand for 5 minutes. Take out dipstick (in front of left side of radiator shroud) and wipe clean. Place dipstick back in but do not turn in, take back out and read level. Adjust level as necessary.
The first site link below has diagrams in exploded view for your bike for assistance.

Goodluck and cheers.

There are no markings on the dipstick to know where the acceptable level for the oil is on the 1996 Millinea. How do I know if I have enough oil?


Drain the crankcase oil into a clean container in which you are able to measure the amount. Replenish this amount up to the quantity stated in your hand book. Remove dipstick and fill the crancase with just this oil. Dip the oil level and using a scriber or a file, mark the dipstick at the level of the oil.
Notes:
1. The quanity of oil is the engine capaity less the oil filter.
2. You may wish to use clean new oil and fit a new filter. If so, use the fill capacity including the oil filter, or add about another pint.

Engine oil type and quantity for 04 yamaha 225ttr


I use and recommend Castrol Syntec motorcycle oil 10-40wt for your bike. Should hold about 1 1/2 quarts. Buy 3 qts when your at the store, then youll have some for topping off. Start by pouring in 1 qt (after oil has been drained and new filter installed) then check dipstick w/ bike level on level ground. Keep adding a little at a time until dipstick registers full....Good Luck to you my friend....Tim
