Some useful advice in advance
- Be sure to use the correct engine oil. The type-specific specifications (viscosity, optimum brake
temperature, etc.) can be found in your manual. If you don't have it at hand, feel free to contact our
customer support. There you will be well advised on suitable oils and lubricants!
- You shouldn't save money on engine oil. There are many different manufacturers, but oil isn't oil just
because it has the same SAE rating. We therefore recommend to rely on well-known manufacturers. They
often have development experience from racing and can guarantee a performance that meets the
requirements of modern off-road engines.
- How often should you change your oil? Rather too often than too rare. Again, don't save money on the
wrong side. An engine damage will definitely cost you more than an oil change too much.
Note: In this tutorial we show you how to change the oil on a 4-stroke
bike. In general, you can also follow these steps for 2-strokes. However, it is important to note that
2-stroke engines are lubricated "separately" and that you must use special 2-stroke gear oil for oil
changes. The combustion chamber is lubricated separately in the 2-stroke engine via the addition of 2-stroke
oil to the gasoline.
You have read that? Then we can now start with the oil change!
