oil amount correct


Recommended Posts

I was wondering if the stock oil amount for the 150r is correct.

I know with my 450r people recommend running about 600-700cc when it calls for 580cc on the transmission side. I guess the kick starter idler gear squeals from being under oiled.

I also run a hair more on engine side as well on the 450. it calls for 690cc i put 725c in it.

Should i be adding a little bit of extra oil to the 150r?

It cant hurt anything right?

I know the amount it calls for, which lands it between the marks. i am wondering if it needs to be a little higher than the factory recommended amount.

old-tri tank should be there thursday maybe today.

You were right to seek advice before putting in extra oil.

In many cases, adding too much oil CAN be counterproductive. Best to not try and second-guess the engineers.

In my experience w/ this bike(230 hrs.) there is no reason to run the oil higher than called for. However I may have overfilled the trans by an ounce or 2 , Ive had no Ill effects from that.
