There's nothing wrong with the oil being in the frame but the dipstick doesn't measure oil levels very well. The only bad ting about the oil is make sure and tighten down the drainbolts correctly. Why would you want to check your oil it doesn't burn any like crf's. Just put in exactly what your service manual calls for and you'll be good

sounds good ..the prob with the crf ...well i will re-phrase that ....hummm
one of the probs with the crf ..i put the spec oil in ...ride or start it ...its all over the place ...up down too much ..too little ...very hard to tell if its burnin oil ...or is gas leakin past the rings and expanding volume :thumbsup:
just 1 of the reasons If had it with honda ...dont get me started :thumbsup:

I like the looks of the crf's but too many problems for me to own one. I LOVED my old 1980 xr80 beat the living crap outta it and it still had the original rings it eventually needed a new clutch and the frame needed to be bent back but that thing was RELIABLE like a pet rock

I almost bought a 250f two weeks ago..but after re-placeing the piston, rings,timeing chain...I rode it and was pretty happy ...tonnes of power...then 10 hours later pop ..dies on me 1 hour in on my sunday ride ..spent the rest of the day pulling it apart and trying everything to get it to run :thumbsup:
I bought it in sept...by nov I needed to re-seat the valve seats and valves $530 thats just the begining..I could go on and on.... :thumbsup:
all the people i ride with except 1 or 2 ride blue...I even rode a 03 450f
on sun when my bike died ...it felt lighter and nimble...but it was a little less powerful....who cares!!!...if I can go 30 hours with no prob's im happy!! :confused:

A year. That's just getting broke in. :thumbsup: The good thing is, that's a pretty common story for blue thumpers.

My 03 runs perfectly and I havn't done dick with it. Well, I checked the valves just because and they were all in spec. I might put a new piston and cam chain in for preventative measures to freshen it up.
