The tdm is a dry sump engine where the oil is in a tank under the seat and is pumped around the engine and returned to the tank by a scavenger pump in the bottom of the engine so a level window on the engine is not required

There are two way most bike have to check oil level. on the right side there should be a round plug that says something like 10w40 unscrew this and there is a dipstick on the end. the other way is again on the right side there will be a sight glass about the size of a quarter with 2 marks next to it work just like a dipstick and as always to get accurate readings the bike need to be level front to back, side to side

SOURCE: where do you check engine oil? Should there be a

hi,
you can check the oil level in your bike by using the "oil sight glass" at the lower part of engine in the left hand side of your bike, just below the left foot peg.there are two marks, the upper mark referring the maximum capacity for oil level and the lower mark showing the minimum level.The oil level can be anywhere between these two marks.Please make sure of two things while you check the oil level in your bike.

  • Run your engine for two min so that the oil is warm while you check the level.Never check the oil level in a cold engine.
  • Hold the bike in upright vertical position while checking the oil level.
I have provided an example picture showing the location of the oil filter in a Yamaha v-star.Hope your problem is solved.Please rate my solution as 8a0e22a.jpghelpful.Have a great day.

SOURCE: oil sight glass misted up can not see oil level

There is no easy fix, you need to remove the complete cover and clean it from the inside with a pipe cleaner or similar.
You can usually reuse the gasket.
If you rest the bike on its side you can leave the oil in, and it doesnt mess up the workshop floor.

I just bought a 1996 Yamaha TDM 850 but head race feels loose


You need to get your bikes front end off the ground .Once the weight is off the front wheel you can check to see if there is any movement from the bearings .They are tapered and can be adjusted .Or it my be a case that you need oil in the forks ..
