How to change oil on a 2002 kawasaki vulcan

Put bike up on center stand. Put empty pan below engine. Look under engine to find a bolt about 14, 15 or 16 mm. You will only see one so you can't make a mistake. Remove it and oil will drain as it falls out. Remove the oil filter on the front of the engine (down low, looks like a soup can with the end pressed against engine. You should have bought a new one already). You may need an oil filter wrench ($3 - 8 depending on store. Buy it at the same time as your filter so you get the right size). Oil will drip out, set it in the oil pan to drain. Then replace drain bolt and screw on filter. The remove filler cap on right side of engine. Add oil 10-40 or 20-40 weight usually ok this time of year. Add until you see oil mid-way in the oil level glass on bottom right of engine. Oil volume should be stamped near oil filler cap. Oil weight might be stamped on there too. Replace filler cap and start bike and run for 15-30 seconds. Turn off and let oil settle for a minute. Add oil as needed to get midway in sight glass. Repeat one more time. Check for leaks. Wipe everything clean so you can clearly see leaks when you check tomorrow morning. Good luck and dispose oil properly. Pep boys likely has the oil filter, just ask at the desk with your model and year. Cheers Clean up and dispose oil.

How do i check the oil because i just bought a 2009 suzuki bulevard but there dip stick? and the dealer ship didnt give me an owners manuel

On newer model bikes there is no dipstick, just a cap.
so to check the oil level, you need to look on the engine cover itself.
there will be a sight glass, with 2 hash marks on the case .
lower line is minimum, top line is maximun

If the sight glass is too dirty, warm up the bike and then change the oil and filter.
Then watch the sight glass as you fill the oil.

if bike is equipped with a center stand, always check oil on center stand.
if no center stand then check oil with bike on kickstand.

The sight glass will be either on the right side lower engine cover
or left side lower engine cover.
it it round and about the size of a quater.

Hope to be helpful.
best regards
Big al

How do you check the oil level on the 2002 BMW r1150r?

Just put the bike up on it's stand or use the kick stand with a shim under to get the bike near level.
Then use a flash light and look low on the left side of the engine and you'll
see a small round flush mounted glass the size of a nickle.
The oil should appear dark on the bottom half of that sight glass and if properly filled said level will cut right through the middle of the glass...if the dark line is below half then add oil!

I have had 2 strokes for nearly 20 years. got my first 4 banger yesturday, YZ250f 2004. wot should i be looking for, where and when do i fill up the oil, and it is just straight fuel in the tank is,nt it....

Checking the engine oil couldn't be any easier. On the lower left side of the engine, by the shift lever, is a round sight glass. With the bike held straight up, off the side stand, the oil should be somewhere near the center of the glass. Above the sight glass, also on the left side of the engine, is where you pour oil into the engine. On the bottom of the engine is a drain plug. I change my oil about every three months - or more depending on how much I ride. Use any high quality 10W-40 or 20W-50 (depending on the climate where you live) motor oil.
And yes; use straight (premium) fuel in the tank. The other thing that you will need to have done, perhaps every 50~100 hours of riding is a valve adjustment. For that I suggest you either buy a shop manual or take it to the dealer. Otherwise, there's not much else to do that is all that different from your previous bikes; oil and adjust the chain, tighten the spokes, clean the air filter, ride, etc.

I need to check the oil level in my 1985 Yamaha virargo 700 and when it starts all the oil disapears from the glass left side of the bike should it be full when the bike is runnung or when th ebike has...

this is normal. when the engine is running it drives the oil pump which then circulates the oil around the engine. this will empty the sight glass. to check the oil level switch off the engine and leave for 15 minutes. make sure the bike is on level ground and upright. this gives the oil time to drain back into the sump. hope this is helpful..

How do I check oil level?

There should be a sight glass at the bottom left side of the motor. Hold the bike level and look at the sight glass. It should be brown to the top of the glass. It's best to check it when the engine is warm also.

I do not know in ML, but if you look on the right or left side of engine you should see a site window. When you put the oil in what you are looking for is the oil to be in the middle of the site glass.
