Hi all im new to the forum and new to my big bad xr500, i just purchased my bike a day ago and in the proses of changing the oil, so i drain the frame oil, then the motor oil from the rain plug on the left side by the gear shifter, lots of dirty oil came out from both locations..
I proceed to fill the frame will oil with the thought the motor will fill at the same time? ??? but when i filled the fame it only took half of the amount i took out of both locations, with me seeing that i figured i better pull the drain bolt back off the block to make sure to see if there is oil reentering the block, after doing so very little oil drains out so at this point im like ***?????? am i missing something??? really hope someone can help this knoob out i know im missing something really simple here so im turning to you good people for HELP..
