Oil level / viewer....?

Recommended Posts

hi Guys, gave my KXF (2009) a oil change today as only picked it up a few days ago. Drained the oil, looked like not a lot came out and it was well due for a change. I put in 0.75L as in the manual as i did not replace the filter, but the viewer shows too much oil as it looks like the oil level is over the viewer and not between the lines.

Should I go by the measurment I put in or drain some and go by the viewer??

Cheers all

The brake disc is floating to stop it from warping when it gets hot. It´s normal and you will not notice it while riding.

The oil window shows too much just when the oil is poured in.

When the engine has been run it will show a lower level.

Some people reported clutch trouble with the recommended amount of oil (which is way lower than in -08), the solution is to not care so much about the window and add a whole liter (quart) every oil change.

It will not hurt performance or blow seals.

I have added that amount for over 50 hours with no problems.

Just use the window to see IF you have oil at all, and to judge it´s color.

warm engine before you drain and when the oil stops push down on the kick starter a few time you will get out a lot more oil. keep your finger on the kill switch!!!!!!!!!!!!. it takes time to drain out all the oil.

Also some bikes have a second drain hole, mine has another one under the skid plate.

Not -09 and up. Only -04 to -08.

      Hi, I have just bought a kx250f, 2013 with a freshly rebuilt 2016 motor in it, this is my first time on these forums, anyways, I have also bought a lowering link to drop it 4 inches on the arse, I was wondering if anyone knows how much I should drop the forks? 
      I havent put the lowering link on yet. 
      Thanks.

      Recently had issues with the original fcr carburator that was installed in my 2009 kx250f, tried jetting multiple time and different gas and the bike would only run with the choke ziptied out. Do I went ahead and purchased the lectron gen 2 4 stroke carburator kit, was kinda expensive and I was kind sceptical but after my first ride all I got to say is wow. The only adjustment I have done it set the idle, the bike runs amazing and feels as if there is more power than before. The kit came with a new throttle tube assembly and a g2 throttle tube with adjustable cams for throttle response. I highly recommend if you have a carburator on your four stroke and don't want to get a new dirtbike that is fuel injection then go the route of throwing out that junk fcr carburator and get a lectron gen 2 carburator for your old 4 stroke

      I own a 2012 Kx250F that I would like to make street legal if possible and I recently saw Rocky mountain I believe sells these battery packs that sit in the airbox for bikes without batteries that looks too good to be true and a headlight and turn signals like a conversion kit basically and I was curious as if anyone has had luck with those or if there junk it would be nice to make my bike street legal for short trips or just have lights for trail riding with friends that already do if possible any tips on converting it?
