Hey! Watja' mean by that?? :eek: :laugh:

Congrats on the new ride Barry. Those things are awesome. :thumb:

Recommended capacities are;

Engine oil with filter change .73 quart.

Engine oil without filter change .70 qt.

Gearbox. .62 qt.

I use 10W/40 Mobil 1 in both engine and gearbox. So far so good.

Many people run their engine oil clear to the top of the sight glass. Since they don't hold much oil, every little bit helps.

Good luck with your new scoot.

I use the metal screen Scotts filter and I clean it and change the oil
every two-four hours riding. About 3/4 quart of Yamalube 4 (yeah,
I know, but I used to have the YZF and I bought a full case).

On the gearbox side, I *measure* 600cc of Belray 80wt gear oil
and get it all in there.

So far, zero problems. ('03 CRF)
