Take the two hex screws out of right side rear cover and remove the chrome cover. The clear lens is the oil level check. The oil filler is to the left of the clear lens oil check.
The oil filter is under the battery, and the oil drain plug is toward the back underside of the engine.

Warm engine and stand upright on centerstand to drain oil, let drain for 15 minutes.

I use Castrol Power1 GPS 4T 10W-40 in my air and oil cooled Suzuki. You will need 5 quarts when changing oil and filter. The link below has diagrams of the bike in exploded views.

Were is the oil drain plug on a 2008 bigdog mutt 117C.U.


warm the oil up.....take a little ride.
find the oil drain at the bottom rear of the oil tank. drain oil. replace filter.
the HD style V-twin is a dry sump engine. there shouldn't be much oil in the crankcase. DO NOT remove the plug in the bottom of the crankcase!!!!! if you strip it, you will have to replace the crankcases......if it falls out, you will loose all your oil while riding.
fill the oil tank with the oil of your choice. any 20w-50 if acceptable. do not top it off! the oiling system requires an air gap at the top of the oil tank. typically 3 quarts of oil.

Where do i fill the engine oil on my 1998 gp 1200 waverunner


I looked at the manual located at: http://www.865-customz.com/manuals/98%201200%20gpr%20Owners%20Manual.pdf

According to this manual you have a two stroke engine. Two stroke oil is mixed with gasoline.

From Wikipedia:
Two-stroke oil (also referred to as two-cycle oil, 2-cycle oil, 2T oil or 2-stroke oil) is an engine oil intended for use in crankcase compression two-stroke engines.
Unlike four-cycle engines which have a closed crankcase, these lightweight engines use the crankcase as part of the induction tract, and therefore, oil must be mixed with gasoline to be distributed throughout the engine for lubrication. The resultant mix is referred to aspetroil.[1] The two-stroke oil is ultimately burned along with the fuel as a total-loss oiling system. This results in increased exhaust emissions, sometimes with blue smoke and/or a distinctive odor.

1986 Honda XR 600 R engine oil is blowing out the breather hose


Hi, Anonymous if you are experiencing excessive oil coming out of the crankcase breather or air filter please drain all engine oil and replace half of the same oil that comes out. Many riders are overfilling their oil system because they do not know how to properly read their oil site glass or dipstick. The following procedure works on nearly all 4 stroke engines but to be on the safe side you should refer to your owners manual. Use your center stand if you have one.
1. Bring the engine up to operating temperature or let idle for 5 minutes.
2. Turn off your engine and let it sit for 2 minutes, this will allow the oil from the top end to drain to the bottom.
3. Hold your bike straight up or on the center stand and wait 2 minutes for the oil in the bottom of the engine to be level in the sight glass or on the dipstick.
4. Your oil level should be between the top full mark and the bottom add oil mark.
5. Never overfill your oil system it will cause problems:
a. oil leaking out of exhaust pipes.
b. oil leaking out of breather pipe/hose.
c. oil carryover into the air cleaner.
6. Your oil site glass must "NEVER" be completely full or empty drain or add oil as necessary.
7. Your oil dipstick must "NEVER" be over the full mark and should never be below the add mark drain or add oil as needed.

03 yzf 250f how to change oil


This engine holds one quart of standard Yamaha YZ 250 engine oil. The oil filter is located on the rear of the crankcase behind the suspension spring. The oil filter looks like a small metal can that is screwed into the top rear of the crankcase. On the bottom of the crankcase is the plug that will need to be removed to drain the oil from the crankcase. Anyone who owns this model dirt bike can complete this job in about 10 minutes.

I have a craftsman snowblower that I believe is about a 1998-99 model. I need to know what type of oil it uses... If it does at all.


I can answer this for you if I have the model number of the snow blower. But, if the snow blower uses a 2 cycle motor it will use an oil/gas mix and no oil in the crankcase. If it is a 4 cycle motor it uses oil in the crankcase and none in the gas.
The easiest way to find what type of oil it uses is to look in the operators manual. To get the free manual go to managemylife.com and input your model number in the manuals tab.
Your model number is located on the machine and looks like 247.123456.
Feel free to ask any other questions. I know Snow Blowers. Please remember to rate this answer!

How much oil does a 1500 suzuki xl intruder take?

97 XR 250. AFTER RUNNING FOR A LITTLE TIME THE CRANKCASE OVERFLOW STARTS FLOWING(OIL). IF IT WERE RINGS WOULDNT IT START LEAKING IN THE BEGINING AS WELL.


No, because it may take some time for the oil to heat up and expand. Then, once this happens, the oil can begin to get whipped up by coming in contact with moving engine and transmission parts. Oil foaming can occur and over-run the crankcase ventilation system.

To help eliminate this problem, be sure to use the correct oil as recommended in the Honda owner's manual. Do not overfill the crankcase with oil. Change the oil and filter more frequently - especially after riding through deep water crossings.

If you suspect worn piston rings, check the spark plug for oil contamination and perform a cylinder compression and leak-down check.

Can not locate the crankcase oil check bolt on my 93 rm 125


Hi, firstly look on left side near cylinder base for a cap !its not a bolt[way too big] & usually has a bar arrangement so you can get hold of & twist it!
dont mix oil brands! use a TOP quality oil
as its the only insurance you can apply to it!
[ cheap oil kills engines] use what you can afford! & stick with it!

Caramel (coffee) colored oil


It's trans fluid. It came out of the vent tube just above the primary cover on the top cover of the trans. If you look at the tube, the inside will be wet. Run the bike up to operating temp. Check upright and level.
