    How to Check/change oil in Virage 700 crankcase?

    Again, I underline the fact that I know nothing about these 2 stroke engines.

    How does one go about checking the proper level and even change the oil in the crankcase?
    What weight of oil would replace the fluid in the crankcase. (And yes, I know it doesn't have an oil filter.)

    Thanks!

    Brad

    2 strokes don't have oil in crankcase.hence the need for 2 stroke oil mixed in with the gas

    Ok, so there is really nothing more I can do to aid the bearings in the crank from failure? What about fogging? How do you fog a 2 stroke?
    What spurred this on is that I had a piston bearing fail on me and want to prevent it from happening again.

    The Virage uses a oil injection pump to apply the proper mixture of oil with the gas into the crankcase that then lubes the bearings down there before transferring up into the cylinder to be burned. Crank bearing can be caused by a couple of things. Lack of oil....In the container under the hood....Bad oil pump- very rare.....plugged or restricted inline oil filter (yes they do have one,not like a car's, looks more like a inline plastic white fuel filter) ......Water that has gotten into a engine thru the carb during a flip or leak into the hull. Some people will fog a engine after running in salt water after each ride to prevent corrision... and when storing at the seasons end. I suggest you follow my link below this post and do some reading and searching there. Alot of good information can be found there and a wealth of factory knowledge.......
