2006 yz250f oil question

Recommended Posts

I am a little confused as to the amount of oil this bike takes.

The dealers tell me that it takes 1.16 quarts or 1.1 liters including oil filter.

The manual has 1.22 us quarts for periodic oil change

1.32 us quarts with oil filter change

1.48 us quarts total amount

The amounts from 1.32 and 1.48 is quite a difference.

I will be changing the oil filter along with oil change everytime. How much is really required?? Should i go by the window port. The manual does not say anything about the level in the window, it just say's to make sure you see oil in the window. I assume that the oil has to be in the middle of the window.

yeah in the middle is fine but you could go 2 or even 3 rides in between oil/filter changes. I do it every 2

Back to my question, which level is the correct one for a filter change also?

Today i filled it with 1.32 and it is over the window?? I have never had this much trouble with something so simple. The manual is out of wack. If i go by the window it's less oil than recommended. I think the window is throwing me off. Any ideas from you new owners of 06 yz250f???

Cold or hot i'ts above the window level.

Did the new oil go to the oil tank? Did you drain the oil tank?

page 3-13

*Oil level

Oil should be up to the full level in the check window.

Congrats, on the new bike. Don't worry you will get your deposit back.

Thanks Mark

Does the manual say it was supposed to be below the top of the window? Did you recheck the window after running it for a couple minutes? The majority of the oil will reside in the oil tank and not in the engine.

Cant say for certain, but I would bet $10 that if you fill the engine up based on the window you will not add enough oil.

Oil level inspection for 2006 YZ250F 3-13 of Owners Manual provided with M/C

"ENGINE OIL LEVEL INSPECTION

1. Start the engine, warm it up for several

minutes, and then turn off the engine and

wait for five minutes.

2. Place the machine on a level place and

hold it up on upright position by placing the

suitable stand under the engine.

3. Inspect:

• Oil level

Oil should be up to the full level in the

check window 1.

Level check window is not full. → Add

0.2 L (0.18 Imp qt, 0.21 US qt) of oil."

3-16 of Owners Manual

Oil change specs

1.15L Periodic oil change

1.25L With oil filter

1.40L Total "as in rebuilt motor and engine is totally dry"

The window is for inspection only really. If you see any air gap when following the above procedure add 200CC of oil.

If you are ever in doubt just drain the oil and add 1.15 L of Oil for some cheap insurance.
