Yes, Yamaha makes regular,semi-,and full synthetic oil for there motorcycles. Make sure the oil you use is JASO MA certified for motorcycle use. Do not use any oil that says energy conserving, it will shorten the life of your clutch and drive gears. Amzoil and Mobile 1 both make good motorcycle oil (full synthetic). Full synthetic is often the same price as semi-synthetic.

There is a window on the bottom of the left side (kickstand side) of the chrome cover. with the bike level, you would look into the window to see the oil level. it should be at least halfway up the window, but not all the way up.

What type and Wt.oil is recomended, and is there a dip stick available. 2003 1100 classic.


Any oil that is JASO MA certified motorcycle oil. 10w-40 for cold climate. 20w-50 for warm climate/touring. Do not use any oil that says Energy Conserving on the label . It will shorten the life of your wet clutch and transmission gears. Synthetic oils will help your bike run cooler and shift easier. I have not heard of a dipstick being available for your cycle. Always be sure to hold the bike level when checking the oil so you get an accurate reading of the level.

First Time--changing the oil-want to make sure I do it right. Thanks,Harvey


o.k easy one this .First get good motorcycle oil 15/40 semi synthetic and a new oil filter first, never use car oil. Warm the engine up to get good oil flow. Remove the oil drain plug at the bottom of the engine,dont loose the seal washer. drain the oil into a container,and remove the oil filter as well. replace washer and oil plug do not over tighten,hard hand pressure only with quality spanner. fill oil filter with oil and oil `O`ring with oil to replace by tight hand pressure only no tools. Fill engine oil through oil filler cap to correct level between the two marks on the dip stick,bike must be up-right for best accuracy of oil level. There done.
