Help me change oil on KTM 350

Recommended Posts

This is my first four stroke and it has 1.5 hours on it (Half hour of easy riding and 1 hour of hard riding) I am ready to change the oil. I ordered the oil filter and oil for my bike, but are the transmission oil and engine oil the same ? When you drain the plugs it tells you to and put new oil in does it get to the transmission and engine both ?????

The manual is rather confusing, and I am used to pulling a plug putting it back in and filling it with oil in my 2 strokes gearbox like 6 times a year, and premixing the engine oil. Anyone willing to help????? I will have questions as I start.

Edit- It mentions something about removing a plug and oil screen with o-rings and cleaning it..then it says:

Push the oil screen with o rings onto a PIN WRENCH

Push the pin wrench through the opening into the drill hole of the opposite engine case wall and push the oil screen as far as possible into the engine case.

What does that mean??

Edit- It mentions something about removing a plug and oil screen with o-rings and cleaning it. on the left hand side of the bike as you sit on it there will be another type of bolt that looks like a drain plug this needs to be remove & the oil screen needs to be pulled out & cleaned (Just plast it with an air gun)

Push the oil screen with o rings onto a PIN WRENCHIm not sure what the pin wrench is but it will become clear when you pull the screen out

Push the pin wrench through the opening into the drill hole of the opposite engine case wall and push the oil screen as far as possible into the engine case.This is when you put it back in after cleaning , Basically there is a locater pin that the screen pushes on to & just fit the plug/bolt & fill with oil

when reinstalling the screen dont just try to stick it back in, it will fall into the case and can be a pain to get back out. use a pin wrench (i used a peice of skinny dowel)

As mentioned earler you need to get the screen to meet up with a pin on the other side of thecase.

you do need to watch out with the screens, if you dont put them back in correctly you can crush them and there not cheap.
