Motorcycles generally use one of three methods to check oil level.

1. A "sight glass" or small window which will allow you to see the oil level. (it should be at the mid point of the sight glass. Check it with the bike upright and not leaning on the kickstand.

2. The fill plug may have a short dipstick attached to it just like a car would. Again check it with the bike upright.

3. If no other method is used, then open the fill plug and fill until the oil level just reaches the lowest part of the fill hole without spilling out. Once again do this with the bike in the upright position.

Check to make sure the rubber O-ring is in good condition and is properly seated on the fill plug while you are at it!

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.
