Re: wheres the dip stick ????? i hope not riding the...
There is a sight-glass window on the right side of your bike. It's located near the ground in the middle of the bike. Hold the bike perfectly upright and the oil level should split the sight-glass right in the middle.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

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.
Remove the spark plug(s) . Jack up the back of the bike. Engage the transmission if possible and try to turn that wheel a small bit one way or the other that will turn those gears to push the stick outwards. It may happen if it's not jammed too tight. Otherwise I see opening it up to remove a few gears, LOL
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
Depending on the year and model you can find the battery under the seat on most motorcycles.As for the tool pouch it can be in a couple of places but a lot of the time they are behind one of the side covers or in a small compartment under the seat as well.My advice is to buy a set of tools and leave the bikes set exactly where they are.Motorcycle tool sets are not known for their quality or durability! Good luck and happy riding.
short pipe shouldn't cause you any problem...if it starts to backfire a lot after coming down from high speeds then you might want to think about installing something with a little more back pressure. #2 you"ll know it needs an oil change by if it smells burnt, has a slight fuel smell, or it looks real dark black. Now never ever top off your engine oil, pour only 2 and 1/2 bottles at first, start engine let oil get into the filter now shut off, pour a little more in, fill up to 3/4 either on site glass or using a dip stick, and if it uses a dip stick dont screw it in, just drop it in to measure. also check the chain for wear and stretch....you"ll know its stretched buy purchasing a pit bull type rear wheel stand which is a must..you'll always be using it...and spin the tire and check several spots on the bottom of the chain...if some portions are tighter than others then its been streched and now your riding on borrowed time. I"ve had three chains on my bike in a year and a half. Now im gonna need some sprockets next. #3 try to push start the bike to get it started then if it does start ride it somewhere where you can run it for a good solid 15-20 minutes to charge up the battery. if thats all it was, then your battery is probably old and will need replacing..avg bat life is two years! batteries can be expensive, i bought a Yuasa $95 about a year ago and working fine.Hope you found all this info very helpful.
there is no dipstick on suzki . Stand beside your bike and look on the bottom
ride side of your motor . look for a little
round glass window . That is how you
check . if the oil is half way up the glass
when you stand bike straight up . you are ok. change every 3000, plus filter
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.
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!
