Yamaha YZ85 Transmission oil capacity and Recommended specs

The transmission must be checked for oil leakage before each ride. If any leakage is found, have a Yamaha dealer check and repair the motorcycle. In addition, the transmission oil must be changed at the intervals specified in the periodic maintenance and lubrication chart.

  1. Start the engine, warm it up for several minutes, and then turn it off.

  2. Place the motorcycle on a level surface and hold it in an upright position.

  3. Place an oil pan under the transmission case to collect the used oil.

  4. Remove the transmission oil filler cap and its O-ring, and then remove the transmission oil drain bolt and its gasket to drain the oil from the transmission.

Do not use oils with a diesel specification of “CD” or oils of a higher quality than specified. In addition, do not use oils labeled “ENERGY CONSERVING II” or higher.
    • Make sure that no foreign material enters the transmission.
