On the right side of the bike on that end of the transmission is the clutch release housing. It's behind the exhaust system. It has a plug that takes a 3/8" Allen or Hex key to remove. It has a dipstick on the plug. Check the fluid level with the bike standing straight up. The transmission takes 20-24 ounces of lubricant.

Good luck

I need to know how to change a back inner tube on a 16" huffy bike no gears

Sue, there are lots of how-to videos out there about this. Just google "How to change bike tube" or tire, or flat. You have to remove the wheel, which is easiest with TWO wrenches - they can be the adjustable "Crescent" wrenches, but don't use pliers. You also have to remove the small screw that holds the fat little L-shaped lever to bike. Use a rag to remove the chain from the cog on the wheel. Then use the little "Tire irons" to remove the tire from the rim and get the old tube out - these come three to a set, the plastic ones are best, and you can get them at K-mart. Also, use some baby powder (talc is better than cornstarch) to make the new tube easier to position correctly in the tire - sprinkle the powder inside the tire when you have if off and put the tube in the tire before you put the tire back on the rim. It helps if you put a little air in the tube to make it a nice sausage first. And make sure you get the valve stem straight and pulled all of the way through the hole in the rim. Be very careful that you don't pinch the tube against the rim when you put the tire back on. And the hardest part might be getting a pump to hold tight onto the valve stem - using compressed air (like at a gas station) is by far the easiest method. Good luck.

I just bought a 03 honda 450 and oil comes out of a tube under the motor when started...why is this?Also how do you check engine oil and transmission oil?

Is this a CRF450 single-cylinder off-road bike? If so:

If it's coming out an overflow, it may be overfull. Not sure on that--haven't seen it before.

To check engine/trans, drain, refill with (670cc w/o filter change; 690cc with filter change), start engine, shut off engine, check sight glass on side of engine. If it's low, add oil and repeat start/shutoff/sight glass routine until it's full. Engine and trans share oil.

If it's still pumping oil out the overflow after you're sure it has the correct amount in it, be sure it's oil and not coolant, battery acid, or gasoline (there is a gas overflow tube on the carb for when the float sticks).

How to change the gasket on the oil filter adapter

Easy fix I just did. (replacing the oil filter adapter gasket which is a common leak). Remove the air cleaner tube and housing. Release the tension on the belt. Remove the two front bolts on the air compressor. They are nuts but the stud will come out too which is fine. Under the car loosen the third air compressor bolt. This will give you enough room to loosen the hidden bolt on the oil filter adapter. It only needs to be loosened as the adapter is slotted there. Remove the other two bolts on the oil filter adapter and remove. Replace the gasket and install.

We drained the oil on my 2001 harley sportster 1200 and when I put the new oil in it didnt seem to take that much before it almost overflowed. We then went to drain a little out and nothing comes out the...

No, you're probably draining the small amount of oil that was in the crankcase. All Harley-Davidson engines other than the V-Rod (which I know nothing about) use a "dry sump" oil system. This means that it does not carry it's oil in the crankcase like other motorcycles do. It carries it's oil in a remote oil tank much like a NASCAR racing car. The oil pump pumps oil from the tank to the engine. Once the oil settles to the bottom of the engine, the pump's scavenger stage pumps the oil back to the tank. The oil drain for your Sportster is a piece of hose that plugs onto the frame down low on the left side of the bike back behind the engine. It plugs on just below the pivot for the swing arm. Pull the hose off and the oil will drain.

Good Luck

I installed a new complete Fluidmaster and filled it up with water but when flushing water comes out under the tank not under the toilet though.

probably needs a "doughnut" tank washer under tank..or try tightening the tank bolt..fluid master comes with a little rubber hose that goes to overflow tube

My '02 zx6r has oil in the air filter box. I found the vent tube from the engine/ transmission was spraying oil into the air box. Even before the oil would spew the engine would die when the hose was...

it sounds like there is to much oil in the engine the same thing happened to my zx6r, hold the bike upright on level ground then check oil level on the glass viewing window which is on the right hand side of engine, you should see oil level between the low and high marks, if level is above top line you will need to drain some oil out by undoing sump bolt or using a siphon, when ever checking oil level bike needs to be upright on levelish ground some people check oil levels when bike is on side stand which is wrong as it shows oil level as low when in-fact its probably right
