2014 SX 250 gear oil level

Recommended Posts

Is the recommended 800ml too much oil? If you put exactly 800ml in the gear box and stand the bike level then open the oil level check screw 80ml of oil comes out. Is this overfilling causing pressure on the crank bearing??

no it will not build up pressure, they have a vent.  800 is what it calls for and what it needs.

Dont use the check screw! Way too many have stripped them. I put in 1 qt and it has never caused a problem on my 02. The tranny lube is a BATH and is not under pressure.
