When you say you are having problems, what exactly do you mean? Wiggle and pull on the cap until it comes off. Don't worry about breaking it as the bike is under warranty and you can always take it back to the dealer.

    oops I just read that the bike is a 2005 so it's out of warranty.

How much oil do I put in the motor of a 2005 Honda crf 230f

Is there no oil dip stick on your motorcycle??? I don't know what measuring system you use where you live, so I will talk in terms of the US standard quart. If you don't have an owners manual (look behind the side cover on the left hand side), start with one quart. With the bike on the level (i.e., not on the side stand) check the oil dip stick. Continue filling until you reach the proper level indicated on the dip stick. Do not over fill.

How to check the oil levels on 2005 yz 450 f?? And what oil? And where to fill??

OK to check oil level you have a little dip stick on the left hand side on the frame of bike just in front of the fuel tank to check this dip stick you need to start the bike and idle only (not rev up or ride) and you idle the motor for 2-3 minutes with the bike in upright position. then turn off motor keep in up right position and remove dip stick - wipe the stick clean then insert dip stick back in its hole (without screwing in) then remove it to see oil levels.
a good quality 20w-40 weight oil (motor bike specific) is a good choice but pretty much any decent oil from your motorcycle shop would be OK just discuss it with them when you purchase it I not sure what country you from but where I live our Yamaha shops sell Yamalube and this is perfect a bit pricey but for our favourate toy, it is worth it!
To fill the oil there is another plug on left hand side again at the front end of the motor you will see it is the only plug there that can be opened with fingers - you will need a funnel to fill cleanly as is pretty difficult to pour into it with out spilling otherwise?
Your bike holds only 1.2 liters (1200ml) of oil in total so if you not changing oil filter and completely emptying then oil lines, only add up to 1 liter for a simple oil dump and refill.
Hint for the day with oil is - On a MX bike the more often you replace the oil the longer it will last before needing repair I would always recommend changing oil either once a month or every 3 hours of riding use which ever comes first !
I am often told I am over cautious with this oil change strategy but I also have YZ450f 05 and a 2003 model and I have never had to rebuild because of break down or fault with motor
Maybe this is coincidental ? but then again - Maybe not ??
good luck hope this helps a little

Checking engine oil

Remove the black plug (Unscrew it) just above your right peg.

Have the bike nice and level.

Remove the black plug/dipstick, wipe it clean. Dip it back into the hole and ensure the oil covers the flat portion of the dip stick.

Do this twice or three times till you are sure you have a correct measurement.

There is a dip stick located on the right side of the engine about 4 inches to the front of the oil fill cap.

Make sure you are on level ground. Unscrew the dip stick and wipe it off. Replace the dip stick and then remove again. Check the oil level and replace. If you need to add oil, remove the filler cap and add oil 1 to 2 ounces at a time. Check the oil dip stick to ensure that your oil level is correct.

NOTE: warm up your bike before performing the above checks.

Using oil.

What you have is a bike that is burning oil. You could try a motor oil that is a little bit thicker. Go to any auto parts store, state your problem again and they will show you the products available that will solve your problem. J.

2005 Vegas Ness oil change. I bought the bike used so I don't have a repair manual or owners manual. I just want to change my oil but would like some guidance. Thanks!

Look under the motor and you will see the drain plug. I think it takes a 6mm allen. drain the oil and remove your filter, just like on your car. Your bike should take 5 qrts. make sure you put oil on the new oil filters rubber seal and get it hand tight. after you have replaced the oil plug and filter , pull the dip stick over on the right side and look for the full mark and put the oil in. Put the oil stick
all the way back into the motor, and pull it and check it. Check for leaks and ride safe.

How do you check the oil level on a 1986 honda V65 Magna 1100? (I have no dip stick on the oil cap). What is the oil capacity?

The dip stick is on the same side as the fill cap but toward the rear just behind the round part of the clutch cover, and screwed in at a downward angle. If I remember it takes about 4 quarts to do an oil and filter change on it.

How to check oil on my bike

There are usually two methods to check the oil. One is a dipstick and the other is a sight-glass. You should have one or the other somewhere on the side of the engine crankcase. It should be fairly obvious and not require the removal of any body panels. If you can't find a dipstick in the side of the crankcase you will need to get down on your hands and knees and have a look for a sight-glass instead. This will be like a tiny window with a gauge against which you can check the level.

Genral oil change

Look for the oil dip stick. Now look under underneath the area of bike where the dip stick is. You'll see a round disc with a bolt. That is the drain plug. Now you found it lets begin.
1. Warm the bike up.
2. Turn bike off.
3. Take oil dip stick out.
4. Have your oil pan under the bike
5.. Unbolt drain plug. A spring and screen will come out keep them together.
6. After oil finished draining. Make sure Screen is clean before replacing back in with the spring.
7. Start the bolt in by hand then finish with tightening with socket.
8. Put oil dip stick back in. you're ready to go!

It takes 15W 40 ( .9 liters) Don't forget to press yes if this was helpful : )
