450 sxf oil

Recommended Posts

I recently bought a 2008 ktm 450 sx-f. The motor has been sent to bondi to be upgraded. The previous owner told me how much motor oil to pit in ...but i forgot.:smashpc:

Can you guys remind me how much oil i should put in? I think it was something like 1.5 litres.

Thanks

1.34ltr if the block is completely empty, roughly 1ltr if your just doing a quick oil change. change out your oil no less then every 3 hrs! if you race then I would change it every hour. use Rotella T-15/40, it will save having to change out your clutch too soon, I get around 30 to 40 hrs before slipping occurs. after you add new oil warm up the bike then let it sit for 5 or 6 min, then check the oil level window just below the fill port. it should be around 1/2 - 3/4 to the top of the window warm, about 1/4 cold!

I agree! the Rotella seems to work great with this bike! much cheaper as well! I change out my oil every race so I appreciate paying 5.99 per ltr. as apposed to 14.99 for what the manufacturer suggests.
