Hey All, I wasnâ€™t sure if this should go in the maintenance or the noob forums so I put it here cause it was definitely a noob mistake(s) Sorry for the long post but it is funny cause you can laugh at me and my mistake. Anyway, I have had my first bike (GPX 250) for about 5 months now and have been doing the oil changes myself every 5,000km as is recommended. When I got the bike it had 6,500km on it. I always do an oil change and general check of everything when I buy a vehicle so this was no different. I changed the oil and filter in the first week. Then when I got to 10,000km I changed the oil and filter again. This is where things went wrong. I had the owners manual out and checked what I had to do each step of the way. I warmed up the bike and then removed the oil filter bolt. Some oil came out but not much. I was puzzled by this but kept going. I checked the oil level inspection hole and it was all the same colour. I thought that it was emptyâ€¦. I was mistaken. I replaced the filter and bolted it back together. I then started adding the 1.9ltr of oil to replace the oil that I had just drained. The colour in the inspection hole didnâ€™t change at all. I didnâ€™t understand. So I put more oilâ€¦ still no change. â€œSH#Tâ€ that was the last of my oil. I'm now piss@d off and frustrated :? . I went down to the servo and got another litre of oil. I was pouring it in then the oil started overflowing out of where I was pouring it in??? â€œObviously it was overfull but how, the colour hasnâ€™t changed in the inspection holeâ€, I asked myself. So now I had to drain some oil out cause it was WAAAAAY too full. As I didnâ€™t have a syringe I decided to tilt the bike over to get the excess oil out. I tilted the bike as much as I could without dropping it but there was still way too much oil in there to be correct. I then enlisted the help of my wife to help hold the bike. So we tilted the bike over as much as we could and I it got to a point where I could live with the oil levelâ€¦ just a little above the high mark. So now it has come round to the 15,000km mark and I have just changed the oil again this weekend. Start the same process. Get out the ownerâ€™s manual and read through it again. This time I notice in one of the diagrams has another bolt that is pointed outâ€¦ THE DRAIN BOLT :!: . Iâ€™m like â€œWTF! This is new, I havenâ€™t used this one before. You idiot!!! So I go through the process again, correctly for the time. I think that I finally know how to change the oil in my bike It seems like a simple thing but maybe only for people who arenâ€™t sloooow like me. So has anyone got any tips on how to breathe properlyâ€¦ Iâ€™m probably not doing that right either.
