Transmission fill level question


Recommended Posts

Recently, had my 2016 crf450X professionally rebuilt. Today I checked the trans fluild level by removing the 'check bolt'. According to the manual, "Remove the check bolt, and a small amount of oil should drip out". ....There was about a pint of oil that came out!! So, did the mechanic overfill or is there something else that I'm not aware of?

 

Thanks

Honda had a problem with oil getting to the upper gears on earlier models and Many would run a full quart in the tranny. You don't need to do this anymore this Honda added a oil channel in the shaft and gears, but it's not going to hurt really. You might be have a little extra clutch drag and some additional foaming.

Measure out how much oil you place into the transmission vice using the check bolt. You'll save the mess and won't strip the threads either.

Answer: Check bolt is a good indication, mechanic was thinking old school. (agree?)

Some riders refill their transmission by pouring a bottle into the clutch area and wait for it to overfill and push out through the check bolt. Leave check bolt alone and just measure it out before pouring in the transmission oil.

book calls for 700cc,just below the ck plug has 750 stamped on the case. I put 750cc in but I have heard of some putting in a full quart without any issues. You might give the shop a call.
