Question about 1981 Yamaha XJ 650
First verify the oil level......on the sides of the window are an upper and lower mark. I believe on your model the oil fill cap is very close to where the window is....remove cap and use a clean tape measure as a dipstick. Lock the tape at say 5 inches, rest the tape body on the fill hole, pull out and have the part of the tape measure body rest on the fill hole and the extended tape on the outside so you can compare the actual level dipped to the marks for min and max on the sight glass. If its high drain it down to correct level.
