    Smile Question to GPR owners using autolube (not premix)

    Hi folks,

    I have a 07 stock GPR, and I have a question to you:

    How can I check 2 stroke oil level? I've tried to check oil level using a flashlight with no success. Last month oil spill off and I spent one hour cleaning.....

    Any tips? Thanks!!!

    Best regards from Brazil..... (sorry about my poor English)

    Fernando

    One way is to raise the hood and take the front storage bucket out so light will go thru better, another is to use an oil that is dark in color(the oil I use is very light and hard to see), the other is to run it till the warning goes off on a level surface, then find out how much it takes to fill. In the future run it till the buzzer goes off, then add that amount of oil. 1/2 gallon probably.

    Hi LT1GMC, thanks for you answer. Do you know the amount of oil remaining when the buzzer goes off? Thanks again.....Fernando

    On mine there is at least a quart or more, thats why it would be safe to add 2 quarts or a 1/2 gallon without spilling.

    Good advise from LT1, I've always had this issue too because the oil I run kinda stains the oil tank making the level difficult to see at times so the fuller the better.

    I just use the Yamaha oil and get my partner to watch the tank with hood n storage compartment out of and tell her to tell me went the is about 1cm from the top then I stop this seems to work well for me.

    Oil normally last about 5 tanks of petrol so don't have to do very often

    These damn Yamahas cant even use a gauge for the oil tank? That seems kind of crappy.
