There are two way most bike have to check oil level. on the right side there should be a round plug that says something like 10w40 unscrew this and there is a dipstick on the end. the other way is again on the right side there will be a sight glass about the size of a quarter with 2 marks next to it work just like a dipstick and as always to get accurate readings the bike need to be level front to back, side to side

Oil capacity?


Should be 3.5 Liters / quarts with the filter change. Put in 3 liters then top up as needed to get the level to the top of the viewing window.

To check your oil, bike should be level, on it's center stand, engine should NOT be running!

Any oil viscosity between 10w30 and 20w50 will work just fine. Smaller numbers if the weather's cooler and/or you only do short rides. Bigger numbers for hot weather and longer rides.

How much and what type of oil


I have a 1985 Maxim XJ700NC There is a window on the side case for proper oil levels when the bike is on the center stand. The only recommended oil should be Yamalube 20-40. Do not use automotive oils. There is a slight difference in the makeup of the oil as the bike is oil cooled, and you have a "Wet Clutch". The energy conservation oils have emulsions in them that will ruin your clutch plates.
