Question about Suzuki DR-Z 125 L Motorcycles

2 Answers

Hi, I have purchased a 2006 suzuki drz125l. Soon after taking delivery, the previous owner called me and said that his son had removed and then replaced the large plug in the centre of the crankcase cover (chain sprocket side) and oil came out. He advised me to add a litre of gear oil to the other crankcase plug located on top of the cover. I'm sure this ain't right! I pressume I should just check engine oil level and top up as necessary through the oil filler plug on the opposite side of the engine? However, I cannot find out what the purpose of the two plugs on the sprocket side of the crankcase cover is? Am I right about adding engine oil and can you tell me what the other plugs are for? Cheers, ****.

    Thanks for the reply. I can understand the large plug in the centre of the crankcase cover (the one that needs an allen key) being capable of draining oil when the bike is leaned over. However, I cannot understand why it is needed when there is an oil drain plug underneath the engine for this purpose? Also, you did not explain why there is another plug in the top of the crankcase cover (sprocket side), when the oil filler is on the opposite side?
    Cheers,
    Mike.

Thats the high level plug.
When oil comes out of that hole (plug removed) the oil level is correct.

Please accept this answer to remove it from the work queue.
Thanks.

The parts are called the crankshaft hole plug. You drain oil out of this plugs leaning the bike on one side.

Here the schematic of your Crankshaft Cover.

Regarding the oil you are right. The best thing to do is checking engine oil level and top up till level. If oil had not been replaced recently, better doing an oil change, just in case.
The info you gave about previous owner lets think they did not pay much attention to the bike care, surely this motorcycle has a better owner now.

Regards.

You can use a hand heuld grinder and flat top the weld until you can see a visible line all the way around the spine and the lever. Than try tapping lightly. Maybe use a pully puller if it doesn't break free.
