How to go back to dry sump/add oil tank?

Recommended Posts

I just got a 2011 yz250f and someone insatlled the wet sump kit and deleted the oil tank. I would like to add the oil tank back but was wondering what all i had to do. I found a oil tank and the lines to get already but is there anything else that was installed inside the motor for the wet sump kit that i will need to remove before installing the oil tank? Any help is much appreciated. Thank you.

there are components that are installed and removed from inside the motor.. i installed the kit on my 09, and it was like a plate or something.  i used the tokyo mods version but the dr.d is very similar.. why you want to put the tank back on anyways?

Hello, this is the instruction for Tokyo Mod wet sump kit. I believe it's the same for all brands. I recently did the same thing like you - found a 08 that was disassembled and bough the oil tank, oil lines, complete oil pump and i was missing the spring and ball thing and decided to buy the whole sidecase cover as well. You will probably need the mounting bolts(with rubber fittings) for the oil tank - 3 pcs.

Mine is 09 though. I haven't disassembled '11 but has to be similar. I had problems with the clutch - brand new parts and after 15min of riding the clutch was starting to grab. Disassemble - lubricate - another 15 min of good running. So I drilled additional holes in the inner hub and went to dry sump (had the chance to and I am riding enduro not motocross so extra cooling and lubrication for the motor is a good thing).

Just my personal experience! Good luck and have fun!

P.S. Sorry for the small picture - PrtSc captures the 2nd monitor too :)) you can see what is removed therefore what has to be added (probably you have the sensor installed because this is not to be removed on 100%)
