No visable gear oil

Recommended Posts

when i went to change the oil in my 05Rm250, i noticed that i could not see any gear oil in there visibly. i couldnt get the drain plug out it seems stuck in there pretty good, so i just added a bottle of light gear oil and it seemed to top it off

i will be checking for leaks the next few days, and hope its not mixing into the engine.

Hmmm.... "topping it off" is not the best idea; you don't want too much oil in there. You need to get that drain bolt loose and fill it with the specified amount.

What the hell??????

do you mean that you filled it up until you could see the oil in the fill plug????

The bike only holds 800cc of oil! so if you added a qt of oil then there could be 1800cc of oil in there! Not good.

I would say time to change your opium den habit to one more constructive like painting or yoga :banana:
