How much oil for a 2000 XR80r

Recommended Posts

I'm in the process of changing the oil in my cr 250 and my brother's xr80r and I'm not quite sure how much oil the 80 needs. It's a 2000 but it has the older looking plastics, and I couldn't find a manual specifically for the 2000 model just for the 97 and 03 models. Problem is, in the 97 manual it says to use 0.7 quarts but in the 03 one it says to use 1 whole quart so I'm guessing there's some change in the engine design between those years. Could anyone tell me how to identify which engine I have and how much oil I should use for it? Any help would be appreciated.

When totally stripped down you'll need 0.9l = 0.95 US quart = 0.79 lmp quart.

For an oilchange a little less, 0.8l = 0.85 us qt = 0.70 lmp qt.

 

You can check the level by the dipstick.

 

I recommend cleaning the oil filter screen too, at least when oil hasn't been changed for years or it's an unknown engine.

 

There is no change in engine design and oil amount from '77 'till now.
