Empty the oil into a container, and measure the amount of oil that comes out. I guess that would be the safest way to go. I have no clue where to put the oil it, maybe ask the person that built the ATV about that one.

Likely you'll fill up where ever you're checking the oil level. It might not be a bad idea to get a Clymer book for the ATV. It will tell you just about everything (and more) that you'll want to know. If you're planning to keep the ATV for a while then it is worth the investment. They're about $20 on ebay if you can find it or there are websites. They're usually over priced at your local store.

Anyway, if you do one repair yourself (as opposed to having a shop fix it), then you will have more than paid for the service manual. Just my thought.

Hello, I just happen to have a yz400f equipped atv myself with a DR.D block off kit. I talked to the guys at Sparks Racing and they said it holds one quart and to fill it you poor the oil in the tube coming out of the top of the motor and there is no way to check it so it should be changed often.
