1993 Honda XR200R Oil Filter Location?

Recommended Posts

I acquired this xr200r as a gift and i've ridden it a few times (new to riding). I'm going to be changing the oil and i was wondering where the oil filter is located at. I have some 20w50 oil but i haven't gotten the filter yet. Is the oil filter located in the right or left crankcase covers?

Its under the left crankcase cover.

The oil drain and filter are in the same spot.

Remove the big "nut" there will be a spring and then the filter.

Just clean the filter and put it back in 🙂

P.S. Dont use car motor oil, its not good for the clutch. 🙂

The oil screen is located under a cap plug, between the shift shaft and the engine serial number, on the lower left side of the engine. The cap is identical to the two valve tappet covers located on the top of the cylinder head. Behind the oil screen cap is a spring, and then the screen itself. The cap, spring, and screen are parts # 4, 5, and 6 in the photo HERE

What kind of motorcycle oil do you recommend?

I would go to your local dealer and get actual Honda 10W-40 oil 🙂

The honda oil is a good choice "black bottle"

Automotive oil with the new classification of API-SJ is the same stuff as motorcycle oil that you will pay 300% more for. Just be sure the bottle says SJ.

Correction! The API classification should be SL.

Sorry for the mess-up.

OK. I just got done doing the oil change with GN4 20w-50. That stuff is pricey.

I was also wondering if having bluish-white smoke come out during start up is normal??? Once it gets to warm up then no smoke of any kind.

It wouldn't hurt to keep riding / starting up the bike with that problem right?

It will eventually get worse but you shouldnt have an immediate problem.
