2002 Kawasaki Concours how to properly check the oil level


Hi, Dario if you are experiencing excessive oil coming out of the crankcase breather or air filter please drain all engine oil and replace half of the same oil that comes out. Many riders are overfilling 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 oil mark.
5. Never overfill 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.

I have a motocross kawasaki 250 four stroke model 2008/2009 how much mills of oil does it consume


if you mean how much engine oil do you put in after oil change , approx just over a liter and there should either be a dip stick on the filler cap or a small glass panel with lines on it or a small bolt on the side case which you take out and fill till oil comes out then put back in and run engine for a few mins and test levels again !

1996 Kawasaki VN 1500 Vulcan Classic excessive oil consumption


Hi, Mike oil consumption is usually caused by a worn out engine with lots of mileage, new engines can also have excessive oil consumption due to improper break-in procedures or faulty parts. The general rule of thumb is anything more than 1 quart of oil consumed in 1,000 miles or 1 liter in 1,500 kilometers means it's time for a top end overhaul. The usual suspects are:
1. Piston rings not properly seated (new engines)
2. Piston rings worn past service limits.
3. Damaged cylinder wall or piston.
4. Valves and guides worn past service limits.
5. Valve seals worn out, crushed or no longer attached.
6. Cracked cylinder head.
7. Head gasket failure.
8. Pinched or blocked crankcase breather hose.

I have a kawasaki KX250 motorcycle and there is oil in the radiator.


Check your engine and transmission oil for anti freeze. Also check to make sure your engine breather is not plugged. You probably have a leaking water pump seal , that is allowing oil to get into your anti freeze through the transmission. Normally when this happens the anti freeze goes into the transmission oil.
If there is no anti freeze in the lower engine or transmission , then the oil is leaking from a high pressure oil line going to the head to the cooling chambers filled with anti freeze. This means you probably need to replace your head gasket on the motor. While you have the head off check to make sure that the head has not warped. If it is warped it may have to be machined back to flat or replaced.

SHOOTING GAS OUT OF RUBBER LINE FROM TOP OF CYLINDER HEAD


Are you sure it's not gas mixed with oil? Sounds like the carbs are overflowing and filling the crankcase with a gas/oil mix. The rubber hose at the head should be for exhaust blow-by fume recirculation.

Think i need fluid in forks of my balius H reg. 1987 i think!


I am not familiar with the Kawasaki Balius model, but nearly all front motorcycle forks have two small hex head fill plugs at the top of the forks. The fluid is usually a very pure mineral oil of some sort, but use only the fluid recommended in the owners manual. You can add fluid using a squeeze bottle or a large syringe, just make sure everything is spotlessly clean. If you continue to loose fluid, you will need to rebuild the forks. The job is fairly straightforward IF you can locate a rebuild kit. Once again, make sure everything is spotless or you will be doing it again soon. If you found this suggestion helpful, please don't forget to rate it.
