Where is the oil light on the suzuki vl1500

The oil light is most likely the one at the lower right. My bike is the C90, so it may be a little different but Suzuki's 1500 oil light will be in that general area and will light red when you first turn the key to 'ON' position. You will also see that there will be a picture of what looks like a tiny watering can... this is the oil light. The VL 1500 (like the C90) is air/oil cooled and it is imperrative that the oil in the level indicator window (right side on engine case cover) is at least half way up the glass window (no more than 3/4) with the bike in the staight up possition. Have someone else look while you are on the bike. It is recommended that you let the bike idle for a couple minutes first, turn it off, and wait a minute before checking the level. Hope this helps :)

When changing the oil where should the oil leves be in the glass indicator and does the bike need to be up right ir on the kick stand

The oil level should be in the upper 1/3 of the window when you are done. the bike needs to be straight upright. after you have added the new oil, run the engine for 1 minute and then shut it off. Let the oil settle ( about 2 minutes ) and then check the level. Add until the level is in the upper 1/3 of the window.

I have a yamaha roadstar 1700 need to know how many qaurt of oil it take & if it has two drain plugs If so were are they located

Your bike takes a little over 4qts of oil. The engine drain plug is located on the lower left front of the motor. The oil tank drain plug is located on the bottom of the oil tank, on the right side of the bike.
When refilling, put in about 2.5 quarts of oil in the tank and start the bike and run it for about minute and blip the throttle a few times. Then add the remainder of the oil. Run the bike to operating temperature (approximately 15 min) and allow it to idle for about 3 minutes. Then check the level after a minute or so and adjust as necessary.

My Kawasaki Vulcan 2000 oil level reads overfull ,five minutes later it will read low. Do i have an oil pump problem? Where is the oil going? I have had it in the shop 2 times with no results. cant ride...

you should check the oil with the bike in an upright position and the engine cold. when you run the bike, the oil is flowing through the oil pump. after you stop running the bike, you should wait a little while for the oil to comeback to rest for an accurate reading.

How much oil does it hold and how do you check it with the dipstick on the upper frame?

1.7 litres if you change it without the filter and around 1.9 when you change both oil and filter. run the engine for five minutes then turn off the bike and leave for a minute and a half. unscrew the dipstick, wipe it and put it back in without screwing it and check that its within the lines on the dipstick

All the wrf's,250 426 400 etc. WILL heat up and boil if they are left running without being ridden.They need air to be flowing over the radiator.1 minute can be enough to get them hot if the choke is used.You wrote that this happened after an oil change.Did you previously let the bike sit and run?.Check your air filter is clean as this can enrich the fuel/air ratio and create extra heat.Main thing is ,shut the bike down if you are stopping for more then a very short time.To satisfy yourself,take the bike for a slow ride as it is warming up.It can take up to 1 mile to get proper temp. into the entire motor.Hope this helps

Save our bonneville

sounds like the throttle cables need to be looked over .( he get everything back to where it was before the lubing?)as one may be out of sync with the other. the oil change has NOTHING to do with the sputtering and surging ,stall .it would only apply if the clutch was slipping and that would make the bike rev with the car oil.
