Dirt Bike Oil "leak/dump" - December 23, 2012, 01:20 PM

ok.. nevermind... I think the guy I got the bike from put too much oil in it. I'm going to drain it tonight/tomorrow. Refill properly and see what happens. Need to slow down and think before I come crying for help

Also make sure you use a new crush washer on the drain bolt.

What bike? Does it hold some in the frame? Are there two points for draining for an oil change? I've done the overfill tango myself.

Drain it, check filter and particle screen if it has one. (I've *never* caught anything in it previously.) Refill with the shop manual mandated refill amount. Run for 1 minute, check level.

That should sort it out.

It's a ttr90. Got the shop manual today and plan on the oil change tomorrow if I have time. Guy said it had fresh oil, but what was coming out didn't look so fresh. Maybe I'm missing something but at first glance I don't see any easy way to check the screen though from the manual.....

Maybe it doesn't normally require a screen? I know my 450 does. But every time I've pulled it (Making a god awful mess each time) it it pristine. So I guess that's good.

Do a quick warmup of the engine too. Trying to get as much out as possible. Then check for metal bits in the oil. flacks are generally typical form clutches and such. Chunks, mains grains of sand, and pistons are bad to find in dumped oil.
