Hi Im trying to change the oil on my 2000 or 1999 pw80 cant remember the exact year. I can not find the oil drain plug for the engine oil. I know about the oil plug underneath that drains the gear oil but can not for the life of me find the other plug.

Great thanks to any help I could get

The PW 80 is a 2 stroke, which means there is no engine crankcase oil sump so there is no other plug.

There are two oil "containers" on the PW80, one is the transmission, and the other is the "premix" that gets mixed with the gasoline automatically by the oil injection system. This is the plastic tank under the seat.

Use regular 10W30 or ATM in the transmission gearcase and 2 stroke premix oil for injection systems like Yamalube 2S in the other tank.

Alrite thanks. Now There is some oil in the tank under the seat that I think is yamalube 2s, would it be ok to pour in yamalube 2r and mix the two oils?
