    oil change on CRF50

    do they have a filter?
    how much oil is needed?
    is there a gasket you need to replace on the drain plug?
    Cheers

    Just drain it out of the bottom. Then Just re-fill it with around 600ml. Thats how much i put in and they are always fine. Not sure what the Manual says, but its around 600ml mark.

    Nip up the drain plug and pour it in, put the dip stick back in and your ready to roll.

    as or a filter, if its like any other lil engine, no there isnt one as such... but if you pull off the clutch cover there should be a filter mesh/screen under the clutch/oil pump, just above the sump plug.

    im assuming...i never pulled down a crf.

    Yeah there is one inside. There's a Screen there near the oil pump....I would never bother cleaning it unless im changing my clutch springs etc.

    the one to the right hand side and straight down...the angled one on the left hand side is the cam chain tensioner and has a spring and a piston behind it....

    itll still drop the oil if you undo it and pull out the piston though... but dont

    run it before you drain the oil as well, so its hot...and lean it to one side then the other for a while to get as much old oil out a possible just dont burn the fingers when you pull the plug
