05 Honda crf 450 help changing tranny oil

Recommended Posts

I just let it drain till it stops and then tilt the bike over and hold it there while the rest drains out. Most of the oil comes out with the bike upright.

save yourself a WORLD of pain.. do NOT overtighten these drain bolts. You could likely end up needing a new case half if you do, especially if you tear up the trans side threads. DO NOT use a torque wrench and the manual spec, just give it a gentle "snug" with a small ratchet. DOn't mess about with the check hole either. Just pour in 700ml or so each side every time and you are good.

 

ps: do buy a manual.. it will otherwise save you a ton of time, and money.
