    89 Kawasaki TS Oil Fill?

    I picked up a TS in excellent shape over the winter. I was going over everything and noticed a oil fill cap on the front of the engine. What is that for??

    I know, I need to buy a repair manual, just haven't needed it yet.

    Thanks!

    someone correct me if i'm wrong but if its on the front of the engine cover, ain't that just an inspection hole? Oil plus a stator doesn't seem like a great idea

    aahh.. maybe your right, just an inspection cover. I didn't see any oil in there. I just assumed it was for oil?? I though I had read somewhere the starter gears were in a oil bath?? Dunno...

    thats a stator cover cap Thats the stator and flywheel inside there.That is a dry compartment.In the older days they recomended putting a half teaspoon of oil Two stroke in there during winter storage,better to have gears and flywheel oily and messy than dry and rusty.Normally the front seals in a older ski like yours will leak enough oil and fumes through to coat everything in there, its really mainly just inspection hole,nice looking TS.Hope you are ready for a rough ride, they are flat bottomed and hard seated,which means ouch!!on your backside>Marvin
