There is a small glass inspection window on the lower flange of the clutch cover (r.h.s.)
Picture of part attached.

Leave bike to cool on the centre stand allowing all oil to drain to sump and inspect window for oil level. It should just cover the window when bike is level. If the window is blackened from oil stains and no oil movement is detected, drain oil, remove clutch cover and clean window from inside with solvent and replace, replace oil with 2200cc oil, Cheers.check the oil - 510a044.jpg

Where do I check the oil on a 1981 Yamaha 650 XJ. Just bought it and am still learning. Thanks.


Should have a sight glass on the right side of the motor, or a dipstick on the oil filler cap. Check with bike upright.
