VTR 250 Motor Oil

Discussion in 'Bling and Appearance' started by BlueRex, Nov 23, 2006.

  1. This may seem like a stupid question but i didn't get an owners manual with my bike when i purchased it.

    Anyway.... for those that know on the side of the engine on the VTR,i think it is the left side there is a see through circle where you can see the oil in the engine when it has been stationary for a while and the oil has settled. How far up this window is the oil meant to be?


  2. When the bike is upright (ie dont leave it on the stand) the oil level should be between the two dots on the outside of the window.
  3. ooh ok thanks i best have a closer look at the window for those dots then.

  4. Snowball, yes between the two dots when standing vertical AND when warm.
