Hi I am brand new to this forum. I just bought my kids a couple of dirt bikes and I would like to do some maintenence on them first. They are 1979 Yamaha JR 50 and 1979 GTMX 80.How much oil do they use in the transmission and what is the point gap on the JR 50? Thanks. :bang:

in reply to your post . first thing you want to do is to get a couple of manuals for the bikes then you wont need to ask questions on here untill something major happeneds

I think what Spuddy was trying to say is, we'd be happy to help, however, chances are you'll probably find your answers quicker and more accurate in the service manual. Plus, there is a whole lot of other info in them that you will find helpful in the future.

Check repairmanual.com for to see if they carry those manuals.

There is quite possibly a marking on the side of the cases somewhere near the oil fill hole that should indicate how much oil those bikes take. Might be expressed in CC's or ML's..

No idea about the point gaps.. If you're in a hurry, you may try asking a Yamaha dealer..
