What kind of motor oil do you use for a 1996 yamaha virago?


You can use any oil that is JASO MA certified motorcycle oil. 10w-40 for cold climate. 20w-50 for warm climate/touring. The standard weight that was sold for your Virago when it was new was 20w-40. Car oils use different additives and may cause scoring in certain types of cam bearings. Do not use any oil that says " Energy Conserving " on the label . It will shorten the life of your wet clutch and transmission gears. If you choose Synthetic oils, they will help your bike run cooler and shift easier. Shell Rotella T ($12 a gallon) and Rotella T Synthetic 15w-40 ($22 a gallon) are inexpensive JASO MA oils. You will need 4 quarts of oil, an aluminum drain plug washer, and a filter. Pour in 3 quarts , run the motor, and check the oil level . Top up as needed.

What type of oil is used on the transmission of a yamaha virago 535? an how many quarts would you have to put in it?


To change your oil you will need 4 quarts of oil, a filter, and a new aluminum drain plug washer. You can reuse the old drain plug washer if it has not been squished out of shape. Your motorcycle comes from Yamaha usually with 20w-40 mineral base motorcycle oil. You can use any oil that is JASO MA certified motorcycle oil. 10w-40 for cold climate. 20w-50 for warm climate/touring. Car oils use different additives and may cause scoring in certain types of cam bearings. Do not use any oil that says " Energy Conserving " on the label . It will shorten the life of your wet clutch and transmission gears. If you choose Synthetic oils, they will help your bike run cooler and shift easier. Pour in three quarts of oil and add enough from the fourth quart to reach the high mark on the dip stick or inspection window. Make sure the motorcycle is upright or on the center stand when checking the level . You will probably need 3.1 to 3.4 quarts to hit the high mark. Run the motor for a minute or two to fill the oil filter compartment with oil. Now recheck the oil level and top up as needed.

Where is the oil drain plug on a 2002 yamaha vx 250 virago


On my 1995 250 virago the oil drain is a phillips head screw located on the left side of the bike behind, and slightly above the kick stand. It's almost directly below where the shifter connects to the transmission. Not sure if it's the same for a 2002, but I suspect it likely is.

I just want to change the oil on my 2006 xv250 virago! It appears the oil drain plug is positioned to obstruct being accessible to a ''normal'' wrench. Am I looking in the right place?


I had the same problem on my 1996 virago. The drain plug is not underneath but on the gearbox side of the bike, almost directly under the gear change sprocket. you can identify it because it has a phillips head middle. However a 17 mm spanner will undo the nut. Happy oil changing.

Sometimes water vapor gets in through the vent in the crankcase and as the motor heats the only way to go is up!!!!! I wouldn't worry about it since you checked the oil and it looked fine.

Front suspension must be refilled with oil, how to do it?


There is a drain plug at the bottom of each fork. Just drain them and put the plugs back in then take the caps off the top of each and put in the propper amount of fork oil. You will need actual fork oil, so when you get it ask the shop how many cc's of oil to put in each fork.

I have a yamaha virago xv250 03' model. Its done


first thing to do is to drain oil from your motorcycle use wrench 17(size may vary) to open the bolt under your bike and place a drain bucket under it, then remove spark plug using spark plug remover, as for the filter you can use a cross screw driver to remove the air filter, once you replace the spark plug and the air filter let the oil subside for about 3hrs, then return the bolt and place new oil, i dont know if this help but i hope it will
