Oil overfill following manual

Recommended Posts

So my manual says that I need 1.3 L of oil when I change it with filter change, but if I add that much on change I am over the top of the full mark on my dip stick. Any ideas on why?

 

2003 wr250f.

 

I do have a re-usable oil filter, would that make that much of a difference?

Did you start and run the engine for a minute after pouring in the oil or not?

After you pour in the specified amount of oil, run the engine, stop the engine, and then check the oil level, it should be in the ballpark.

Good call. If it does I havnt opened that plug. Just the one below the stator and the oil filter. Only had this bike for 1 week so far, not overly familiar with it yet. Id imagine it would now that you mention it because the dip is in the frame

Bingo.

It must be way over filled if that's the case.

The YZ also has a strainer in one of the lines (I think right side) that you'll probably want to pull and clean.

Great. Tx for the info guys. Old oil in there probably was contaminating my new oil and would have increased my change frequency as well I would imagine.
