I've had an '06 and now '08 RMZ450 so I'm assuming the '05 is the same.
Run the bike until it's warm and then shut it off. Wait a couple of minutes and then halfway up the clutch cover is a level bolt. Remove the bolt and if the oil level is correct there should be a slight dribble of oil coming out of the bolt hole.

Where do you put the oil in a MURRAY 500-Mulch.

I have two push mowers. One has the first style and the other has the second style oil dip sticks. You add the oil where the dip stick is at. I want to tell you when you add oil, the oil tend to get on the dip stick when you try to check the level.. To get a good reading on the dip stick you may have to check it 2 or 3 time. Wipe the dip stick each time. When you see the dip stick shows the same level on both sides of the stick(at least close) that is your level. The video with weedeater must be briggs and Stratton engine like my murray. That dip stick is on the muffler side near the back of the engine. Mine has the yellow cap also(I just tighten up with my hand not a wrench). I have had mowers with a cap with two little round rod sticking out the top of the cap. It was lower and more to the center of the mower..

I have a yz 450f and there is no sight window or dip stick even were u put the oil in how do i no how much oil to put in it or even to check the oil ?

there should be a dip stick, depending on the model there are a couple of places it could be, up on the frame or hanging off the fill cap, yours may have broken off.
They hold aprox 1.1 litres, but you may need to buy a dip stick.

you should change the oil every 4000 to 5000 km in that hot climat your van should take a little more then 4 liters of oil so buy 6 liters oil filter part # should be on the filter you could take it off the old one if your doing this yourself drain oil put new filter in and add 4 liters of oil wait 5 minutes check oil level on dip stick add half liter at a time and check oil level again wait few minutes in between for oil to drop down in oil pan for proper readings on dip stick.repeat ontil oil level shows in the hatch marks on dip stick DONT OVER FILL. also fill oil filter with oil before instaling the new one to insure that oil will flow trought engine at startup without having to fill oil filter first leaving engine to run without oil until this happends internaly on its own you may have a liter left after your done ,you can use this for top ups inbetween oil changes .you should also check and replace your air filter at this time .

How much oil what wt.

Most any kind of 4-cycle motor oil like 10W-30 will work in these motors. After draining the old oil replace the drain plug. There are two types of motor oil fill holes: 1. If you have a motor with the oil fill/check hole on the bottom of the motor and a small screw-in plug either with or without a small dip stick on it; with the motor level, fill the crank case with oil until it is up to the threads on the oil fill/check hole. 2. If you have a motor with a long dip stick that goes into a filler tube at the top of the motor, again with the motor level, put in about half a quart of oil and use the dip stick to check the oil level. If not full, add quarter quart amounts and check again until the oil is at the full mark on the dip stick. Do not overfill the crank case with oil. Most motors will take about one quart of oil but it varries so watch to see the oil level come up to the proper level.

The oil dip-stick is blown out of its seat when the compressor runs

Without knowing what make or model you have, check the following:

1. Some, not all, compressor dip sticks have venting holes for the crankcase. If the vent holes are plugged or the check ball is stuck the dip stick will get forced out when the piston comes down.
2. Make sure the oil level is where it's supposed to be. Too much oil in the crankcase will cause the motor to work harder and the excess oil being splashed around the crank case can overwhelm the vents in the case or dip stick and again blow the dip stick out.
3. Worst case, you have worn or broken rings on the piston(s), a hole in a piston or a badly scored cylinder(s) and air is leaking past the piston and creating pressure in the crank case and blowing the dip stick out.

How to check oil on my bike

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.
