2016 350 XC-F Oil capacity

Recommended Posts

I am waiting on my manual to be delivered but can anyone confirm oil capacity for the 16 350 xcf? I would like to change tonight. 10W-50?

Fill it till half way up the sight glass, done... 


That's not really what he asked... But I believe it's 1.2L including the filter change aswell. But yes you can check the sideglass and make sure it's at least half way.

Is that for the 2016 or previous model? I know my 2016-2017 250xcfs take 1l. The older model 250f motor took more than 1l.

Be careful with the finger screen filter if you removed it...very easy to install incorrectly!!

Fill the cavity with oil, soak the filter and put the rest of the liter in(or a bit more)

Run the engine for 5 min, then very carefully add to at least the middle of the glass...after letting the oil run back down from the upper reaches of the warmed engine. 

Our 2016 350 EXC-F has its oil changed that way by me, seems to take about 1.1 liters to get it just above the middle of the sight glass. Don't overfill, tempting as that may be when it only takes a liter, doesn't help in any way.

The 2016 350excf runs the old style motor with bigger cases and takes 100-200ml more oil. The 2016 250/350 xcf and sxf have the lower capacity as they run smaller cases. 2017 250/350 excf is now the same and runs the slightly lower oil capacity.

 

1l is your total capacity including filter as per the manual above. If I change my oil without the filter it takes 900ml.

You're right. But the relevance of the actually capacity vs "just halfway up the sight glass" accomplish both the same thing. Except you don't need to measure with the latter...

Following the manual, the procedure is to remove the drain plug, remove/clean the screen then remove the filter, draining all oil. Then fill about 1/3 of the filter cavity with oil, install filter, install cover and it states the engine capacity is 1L.

Didn't realize KTM had different cases for the 350 EXC-F and 350 XCF, thanks.

      Hello everyone, I am new to the page and to the world of ktm. I recently purchased a used 2008 ktm xcfw with a 300 big bore kit, not sure who made or installed the kit. I am looking to see if there is any way to buy a new carb that is set up for this bike with the 300 BB. Any help would be great. The fuel inlet is leaking and there are a ton of stripped screws so I’m thinking getting a new carb might be the best way to go but i don’t really have the skill or knowledge to tune and jet a stock one myself. Thank you!

      i am currently checking valve clearance on 2013 sxf 250 with 70 hrs. bike was bought new and never been apart(as far as i know). when setting TDC the notch on the crank when it is aligned to the whole, has the cam gear marks intake totally up and exhaust totally down. are these the wrong marks to look at or am i missing something. bike does run just a little difficult to start.

      Hey all. I’m a newbie here so let me know if  I’m in the wrong place. 
      I’ll get straight down to it. I’m in the market for a new bike and have been thinking about what’s going to be best for me for a long time. Until recently I finally came to the conclusion that a new YZ250FX is my best option. My last bike was 2015 Yz250f which I loved.
      Now just yesterday I saw a local dealer advertise left over 17’ FX350’s for almost the same price as the YZ. What appeals to me about the Husky is that extra grunt. What doesn’t appeal to me is the suspension and handling and the reliability of the machine. Now I’ve never owned a KTM or Husky so I am basing those two factors on word of mouth only. Like I said, I loved my Yz250f and felt very at home on it, it has probably been the best bike I’ve owned to date. Yamaha reliability is also second to none which adds to my peace of mind on purchasing the YZ. One thing I wish it had was more power though. Obviously it’s only a 250f so you can’t expect it to go like a 450 (not really interested in 450s).
      I ride mostly trails and the occasional day at the mx track. The trails I ride are gravel based, loose, rocky, single trail, and also wide, fast, flowing, sand trails which is where I think my yz250f really shined, and where I had the most fun. I’m only a small rider at 145lbs which is why I’ve steered away from 450s. 
      I’ve read a few forums and others have said the ktm and Husky 350s are unbeatable on the trail which is why I am in this dilemma.
      So basically what I’m trying to decide on is if that extra power is worth compromising for the YZ suspension, handling and usability. Feel free to make any other suggestions, including other bikes as I was also considering the YZ250X 2T.
      Thanks guys

      I am purchasing a 2012 KTM 350XCF after wanting one for a year and finally picking one up in December. My question is what are some good things to watch for on this bike as far as initial set up and good Mods to improve bike ? My plan is to add a skid plate, hand guards and muffler with the possibillity of changing the header pipe and a Rekluse EXP would be nice as we ride mostly single track mountain trails with some rocks . Any good thoughts and suggestions would be appretiated
