SOURCE: Oil Change

You obviously love your steed and rightly so! (As I do mine FLHR) There are always issues as to what & which, I believe your CMX should use 10/40 or 15/40 grade? but that can change with conditions, I'm banging this to you From the U.k. so here 10/40 if a very warm climate maybe 0w/10 or similar, it really is a confusing issue.(I would be up for 10/40!) Par for course?
Firstly I would suggest a quality synthetic (Fully) your handbook will show grade, however if No handbook your supplier (Motorcycle Dealer) will have all relevant specifications on file. As for filter Go genuine it makes sense as there are naughty Far Eastern mass producers of cheap copies out there and they really don't give a didddly squat about your pride and joy so if malfunction occurs after your expensive investment! What a Bu'~mer!
Good Luck! please remember to press that BLUE button for my FREE effort!
Thank You!

SOURCE: 2003 YZ 250 Oil Change

Use 10w40 in the gearbox. Get the oil from your Yamaha dealer along with any filter your bike may need. Some bikes use an oil change as the "filter". To drain oil, get the engine warmed up and turn it off. Put a pan under the gearbox and remove the oil drain plug. Replace the oil plug when the flow becomes a slow drip. Change oil in late spring, the middle of summer and in early fall. Remember to lube the chain and adjust it when needed. Lubricate the cables with liquid graphite. Lastly, install a stock spark plug. Now go for a ride.

Please rate this solution as a "FixYa" if I have answered your questions. Thanks!

SOURCE: oil is leeking from the vave cover of the 1982

Replace the Cam/Valve cover gasket with a new one, and tighten the bolts gradually in a criss cross pattern until they are all equally torqued. Good luck.

Hello what is the capacity oil of honda xr 250 model 2005

The oil capacity of an XR250R / L is 1.3 litres if you are only changing oil.
If you are changing oil and filter you need 1.4 litres.
The oil type should be API grade SF or SG multi-grade oil for motorcycles.
Viscosity 10W-40 as standard but 10W-30 ,20W-40 or 20W-50 are acceptable dependent on the temperatures where you live, your supplier can advise on this.
