How do i change the oil?


Details vary according to the model, but generally:
1. Run the motor long enough that the crankcase is warm.
2. Put the bike up on the center stand.
3. Put a plastic dish/bowl that will hold a few liters underneath the oil drain (usually a bolt on the bottom of the crankcase, check a manual for exact location. )
4. Using the correct wrench, loosen the oil drain.
5. With rubber gloves on, hold the bottom of the oil drain bolt with one hand while you remove the bolt from the bike with the other hand. If the bolt (which may be magentized) has bits of metal clining to it, remove these with a cloth or paper towel.
6. The oil will drain into the pan. Rock the bike back and forth gnetly to get the last few drops out.
7. Now locate the oil filter and remove it (check manual again for how to do this). Replace with fresh filter.
8. Replace oil drain bolt, tightening to correct setting.
9. Fill with fresh oil to the correct amount. Bike should be ready to go.
10. Put used oil into container with lid, have it recycled at a grage or auto service scentre.

White smoke coming out exhaust


White smoke! If your bike is water cooled it's not good. Check your oil. Just look at the dipstick after a short ride. Is the oil foamy looking? If so water from your cooling system is making its way into the crankcase. Unfortunately this is major.

03 yzf 250f how to change oil


This engine holds one quart of standard Yamaha YZ 250 engine oil. The oil filter is located on the rear of the crankcase behind the suspension spring. The oil filter looks like a small metal can that is screwed into the top rear of the crankcase. On the bottom of the crankcase is the plug that will need to be removed to drain the oil from the crankcase. Anyone who owns this model dirt bike can complete this job in about 10 minutes.

My harley has a small leak coming from the air filter, the mechanic at the harley dealership told me it was the air filter. So i bought a new filter put it on and checked the oil level, with the bike...


Regrettably, a small oil leak from the air cleaner assembly is "normal". This is because the EPA requires all crankcase emissions to be routed to the intake system so that it can be burned in the engine. The result is that oil mist in the crankcase vented condenses in the air cleaner and eventually drips out.

The crankcase vent for your Sporty is in the heads. If you noticed, there are two large bolts that are hollow holding the air filter backing plate on. The crankcase vents into the air cleaner assembly through these two bolts. There is an "unbrella valve" in the rocker box center section that allows the air to flow one way but not the other. There are baffles in this area to keep the oil mist to a minimum but still there is some in the air coming out of the engine.

There are a few kits available on the aftermarket for re-routing this crankcase vent. You can direct the exit anywhere you wish using one of these kits. Most people just route the hose down and exit it under the bike just in front of the rear wheel.

When adding oil to your bike, only add the oil when the engine is hot. On your dipstick, you have two marks. The upper mark represents "FULL HOT" while the lower mark represents 'FULL COLD", Do not overfill. Check the level with the bike on the side stand.

Good Luck

Oil is pouring into the air filter from the PVC


It's not unusual for a little oil to get into the air filter as this is where the crankcase breather tube is routed. The EPA required Harley to do this starting in about 1988 or so.

It depends on how much oil is going into the air filter. If you're getting a little oil in there and it builds up over a period of time, this is not unusual. However if you're get a hugh amount of oil in it, it could be one of two things.

The first is not too bad. If the bike has been sitting for a long period of time, oil will seep past the check ball in the oil pump and "oil soak" the bottom end. The oil in the tank will be low because the oil is in the crankcases where it's not supposed to be in a Harley. When the engine is in this situation and it's started up. The amount of oil in the bottom end cannot be pumped out fast enough by the oil pump and it's blown out the crankcase vent tube. Which, in this case goes into the air filter. Really makes a mess. We normally disconnect the tube and put a large pan under the bike and allow the oil to pump out into the pan. Once it's cleared itself out, everything is fine until the bike is allowed to sit for an extended period of time again.

Now, there is another problem that it could be. In this case, the oil tank will be pumped dry and all the oil will be in the engine. If this happens, the plastic breather gear in the "nose cone" may have broken a tooth off the gear and is no longer allowing the oil to be transferred from the crankcase to the gearcase. The broken tooth of the plastic gear can shear the key for the scavenge side of the oil pump. In this case, you can tell this because when you look into the oil tank with the engine running, no oil is being pumped back into the tank. You may need a flashlight to see into the tank. OIl will also be coming out of the pushrod tubes as well.

More than likely, it's either a buldup of normal blowby or an "oil soaking" condition.

Good Luck
Steve

How much oil does a 2000 honda cbr 600 engine hold when changing the oil?


Generally any big bike can hold up to 3.5L oil with filter change.
Rule of thumb when changing oil and filter is to fill the crankcase with about 2.5 - 3L oil and check dipstick on oil filler neck for indicator as it's normally marked high and low (max or min oil) that cn be in crankcase.
If good enough and answer your question just give a 4 thumbs up. Thanks

Is there normally oil in the ac generator of a 1996 800 suzuki intruder


Yes. As is the case with the vast majority of street bikes powered by a four cycle engine, yours has crankcase oil inside the generator cover. The oil serves to keep the generator coil temperatures at a reasonable level. Plus, it is much easier to mass produce an engine that doesn't require an oil seal around one end of the crankshaft.

How much oil for a 2006 honda crf 250x?


The crankcase oil fill is the dipstick hole on the left side of the engine. It holds .73 quart. The right side fill plug is for the transmission oil. It holds .63 quart. You will need to drain the transmission oil and refill it with the correct amount of oil. The drain is located on the left lower crankcase. It is bolt/washer in the parts diagram of the link below. I recommend you purchase an owners manual or service manual for this bike as this is a high performance model that requires frequent maintenance.

Bikes been in storage for 4 years


Your oil pan where you normally drain the oil when changing it IS the crankcase. I would also drain any gas from the fuel tank(s) and put fresh gas in it, and you will probably need a new battery.

Drain and change oil


I can't tell you all the particulars from the limited amount of pictures of your bike. -Remove the oil drain bolt on the bottom of the crankcase (the universal bolt size for bikes use a 17mm wrench). -Drain the oil (remember to recycle). -Re-install the drain bolt with a new sealing washer if necessary. -The oil fill cap should be some where on the top of the crankcase. About 1 or 25mm in diameter with a raised tab for turning. -Fill with recommended oil. -There are 2 ways to check oil level on dirt bikes: 1) Oil level check bolt. On the right side cover. 2) Oil level site glass. A 1 round piece of glass on the side of the crankcase. Usually by the kick start & R brake lever. -Always check the oil level with the bike upright (as if you were sitting on it). -Check bolt - fill with oil slowly until oil comes out of the check bolt and re-install it. -Sight glass - fill with oil to cover 3/4 of the sight glass. -Remember to hold the bike upright when adding oil.,
