Oil change

Recommended Posts

I have a 2002 yz 250, what oil do I need to put in it? I'm talking about the oil that goes in the case not in the gas tank mix, if there was a difference. Thanks

Good question, if only there were previously existing threads to answer this question!

How would I search for that? I've looked all over the place, top to bottom but nothing tells me my answer.

I've found some, just look up 2 stroke oil change. At least that's what I did.

Yes. The first pic just lubes your transmission. The crankcase(2nd pic) and bottom end assembly is getting all its lubrication from the oil you mix in your fuel.

Probably your best bet is to find your service manual. I found both my Honda and R6 online and keep it in my Google drive so I can get to it from any phone, tablet computer.
Both my bikes use 10w40 and I use full synthetic in both.
