Moto 01 cr125 oil change

     

I just bought a 01 cr125 and am in the process of changing the oil. I am unsure of how much oil to put back in. I have read many forums but havent come across consistent answers. I retrieved a measurement from an 01 cr250 service manual but am assuming that varies a bit from a 125. So does anyone know a proper oil measurement to return back to the case?

Also, I was having some trouble with the clutch sticking a bit. After inspection I noticed that the friction and steel plates in the basket seemed to be gunked up which may be causing some sticking. Is there any type of liquid cleaner that I can run threw to clean the plates of can I just wipe them down with some cloth?

Fairly new to bike maintenance so thanks so much in advance for any help, greatly appreciated!!!!!

Ok, first off you really need to pick up a service manual for your bike.

Second, the clutches are sticking due to residue left on them by oil that set on them too long without movement. You can try to remove the clutch plates and clean them with a scotchbrite pad and then soak them in ATF.

Third, the place where you put the oil in should have the amount needed stamped or cast into the side cover.

There is also a spill port in the right clutch cover. Just pull the screw and with the bike level you can fill the trans until it seeps out this hole. I think the 125 holds 650ML.

Be sure to run ATF in your trans, your clutch will reward you with great performance, Use a inexpensive brand and change it very often, it'll keep your trans in top condition with the constant flushing of the contaminants and fresh lubrication at a low price. Drain into a coffee filter and you can keep a eye on upcoming problems by inspecting the type and size of the metal you are flushing out. I think Hang Time nailed it with 650ml for a CR125 if I remember correctly

If you use ATF, buy enough for 3 changes at least to begin with. Assuming that the previous owner used gear oil or motor oil, your rig could have lots of build up in the cavities of the transmission and clutch side. the ATF will loosen those up. about 20 minutes of riding and a change would be my suggestion. Then a full ride, and a change. I change about every 2-3 rides and anytime that i cross a creek that submerges my engine up to the coutershaft I do it too. (that last part applies to the 4 strokes i own too)

That's about my schedule every 3rd track session (about every 4 hours) when running ATF. That's why i recommend the inexpensive, I buy it in 5 liter containers ( Ford type, mineral based)

yeah, any of it works just fine. i tend to stay off the ford more now because of the suspiscion that it it hasnt changed in the 30 years since ford was selling a transmission that it was spec'd for. other than that i would use it if the other wasnt around.
