Take off oil cap an smell it. if it smells like fuel or a burnt smell (caused by the clutch) then change it. and you might want to change the friction plates out on the clutch, all other clutch components should be o.k. Also if it looks milkybrown this is not good, you might have a blown gasket.
it should look brownish black not pure black! if black change it..
you check oil level on all bikes in an upright position.. using a sight gauge or dip stick...with dip stick you just unscrew, wipe, drop it in, pull back out, and never fill it up all the way, only 3/4. This will prevent accidental overfill which will cause internal engine component damage.
most all bike take 3 qts, a little more like .2 to .5 extra with filter change, pour in 2 and 1/2 quarts turn on engine for 30 sec and turn off. Then let it sit for a minute to insure new filter absorbs the oil, now fill slowly to 3/4 position, install cap, and go for a ride, get oil hot, and then recheck level, then fill it up full if you like ..but i never do. older bikes should stick with 10w40, but the newer bikes can get away with the newer synthetics with minimal clutch slippage. if you are going to use synthetics i"d put in Barnet Racing clutch "friction" plates, and stiffer springs i did this and boy what a difference..one thing though that you will notice after you do this.. "and its normal", is that you'll have clutch creap, this is because the clutch is a lot tighter and just wants to go! once you use the clutch more it will start to go away a little.
Sorry getting off "track" , now then, use a detergent multigrade 20w50 oil and your good to go. hope this was helpful!

Gearbox oil change on a suzuki rmz 250 2010 model


Is this a 2 cycle or 4 cycle motorcycle?

I am not familiar with this model. Typically, motorcycle transmissions are lubricated with engine oil. Do you not have a owners manual for your 3 year old motorcycle? Check behind the side covers or better yet, check with your Suzuki dealer.

What is the oil capacity for a 1985 honda sabre vf 700s?


Your oil capacity is 3.4 quarts of motorcycle. To change your oil you will need 4 quarts of oil, a filter, and a new aluminum drain plug washer. You can reuse the old drain plug washer if it has not been squished out of shape. Your motorcycle comes from Honda usually with 10w-40 mineral base motorcycle oil. You can use any oil that is JASO MA certified motorcycle oil. 10w-40 for cold climate. 20w-50 for warm climate/touring. Automotive oils use different additives and may cause scoring in certain types of cam bearings. Do not use any oil that says " Energy Conserving " on the label . It will shorten the life of your wet clutch and transmission gears. If you choose Synthetic oils, they will help your bike run cooler and shift easier. Pour in 3.2 quarts of oil or till it reads on the dip stick or inspection window. Make sure the motorcycle is upright or on the center stand when checking the level . You will probably need 3.4 quarts to hit the high mark. Run the motor for a minute or two to fill the oil filter compartment with oil. Now recheck the oil level and top up as needed. If you want to try an inexpensive full synthetic oil that is JASO MA rated 15w-40 Shell Rotella T Synthetic fits the bill at about $23 per gallon. All brands/manufacturers make a motorcycle oil. Some are very hard to find. Just make sure that the oil you pick has the JASO MA "Japanese Rating" to protect your motorcycle engine,clutch and transmission.
