SOURCE: first bike 650 slr

Use 10w40 motor oil in the gear box. Don't use any synthetic oils, oil marked "EC", or oil with "special" additives. Stick with the major brands; Pennzoil, Quaker State, Mobil or Shell. Change the oil filter as well.

SOURCE: I have a Honda XR 600 R and i need to know where

10w40 API SE or SF and higher, my manual for the 600 then has a typo and lists 1litre for an xr100, but I remember it is about 1.5 litres. It goes into the dipstick hole, you will need a small funnel. Get your oil from a bike shop, or auto store, but make sure is says suitable for 4 stroke motorcycles, as car oils have friction modifiers that will cause clutch slip. Good bikes but a little heavy in tight stuff compared to wr's etc

1986 Honda XR 600 R engine oil is blowing out the breather hose


Hi, Anonymous if you are experiencing excessive oil coming out of the crankcase breather or air filter please drain all engine oil and replace half of the same oil that comes out. Many riders are overfilling their oil system because they do not know how to properly read their oil site glass or dipstick. The following procedure works on nearly all 4 stroke engines but to be on the safe side you should refer to your owners manual. Use your center stand if you have one.
1. Bring the engine up to operating temperature or let idle for 5 minutes.
2. Turn off your engine and let it sit for 2 minutes, this will allow the oil from the top end to drain to the bottom.
3. Hold your bike straight up or on the center stand and wait 2 minutes for the oil in the bottom of the engine to be level in the sight glass or on the dipstick.
4. Your oil level should be between the top full mark and the bottom add oil mark.
5. Never overfill your oil system it will cause problems:
a. oil leaking out of exhaust pipes.
b. oil leaking out of breather pipe/hose.
c. oil carryover into the air cleaner.
6. Your oil site glass must "NEVER" be completely full or empty drain or add oil as necessary.
7. Your oil dipstick must "NEVER" be over the full mark and should never be below the add mark drain or add oil as needed.

The valves are making loud ticking noise, thought they were adjusted right, recently rebuilt the top end and replaced all the rocker arms


Double check the tolerances, a loose lock nut on a tappet can make noise. Some times a bad or missing exhaust o-ring can cause a ticking sound, make sure you remove the old exhaust gasket and install a new one.
