sorry for the topics but im just paranoid with the bike i just purchased.



so i just drained the oil, then changed it. put 1 quart and 100 ml in it because it was not coming out of the check bolt. still not but i know it has the oil.


now i can not get my bike to shift at all without ripping it into first. and 2nd not a chance..



where did i go wrong? 


what can i do before i go into pulling the cover off?


shifted fine before i changed the oil.



i put 10 40 in it. never encountered this problem.

What kind of bike?


Some 4 strokes have two different oil fills and drains (one for engine and one for gear box).


Maybe you over-filled the crankcase and ran the tranny dry and messed it up?
