What is the engine oil capacit for a 1976 yamaha DT 400 Enduro? what type of oil< and does the oil injection fill separately but with same oil?


The gearbox takes motorcycle gearbox oil 20w40, this can be the same as 4 stroke motorcycle oil, the capacity will be marked on the casing next to the filler 1.5l or similar. Dont use car oil or the clutch may slip.
The oil injection is separate and different , use 2 stroke engine oil. buy from a bike shop or some auto shops.
I had the 1977 model from new, one of the best trail bikes I have owned.

Engine number m306e-016757 body number 14x-101503 what age is the yamaha xt 660?


For acurate information, look at the registration documents or contact a Yamaha Dealer.


The following info have been gathered from various sources on the web

Q: What does XT stand for?

A: The 'X' stands for CROSS, and the 'T' for TRAIL

Yamaha's first single-cylinder 4-stroke motorcycle made its debut at the 21st Tokyo Motor show in 1975. As well as being the latest in a series of trail (off-road) models Yamaha had introduced at each of the Tokyo Motor Shows since the DT-1's debut in 1968, the new XT500 represented a whole new concept in trail bike design.

The Yamaha DT-1 had introduced many riders to the world of trail riding, and this ground-breaking model was later followed by the introduction of many other trail bikes from other manufacturers. The new Yamaha XT500 was a natural extension of the growing trail bike category, and although it shared the same roots as its 2-stroke brother, the DT-1, it was an entirely different breed of motorcycle. Powered by Yamaha's first 4-stroke single-cylinder engine, the new XT boasted a large capacity of 500cc, and this was at a time when the popularity of big-single machines was considered by many to be past its peak. During the mid-1970s Britain's BSA was one of the few manufacturers still offering big single machines, but even this renowned brand had not released a new big single model in a good number of years.

1976 XT 500. Recently acquired, not experienced in serivicng bikes, just cars. Is the sump and gearbox oil one and the same or 2 seperate reserviors? wish to do oil change


Shared oil for gearbox and motor.

Be carefull not to put automotive oils in her. Generally bikes have a wet clutch and any newer synthetic oils designed for clinging on for quick starts will ruin your clutch. There are some great oils for big single thumpers at good prices. The site below has exploded view diagrams for your bike along with all the part names.

Goodluck and cheers.
