2001 ltf250 oil change

Just picked up a 2001 ltf250 (2wd) for dirt cheap because it wouldnt run. Turns out the battery had an internal short and was causing havoc with the ignition system. Put the battery out of my yamaha yfz450 in it and the suzuki fired right up and ran like a champ.

It was a farm quad, and Im guessing it was never maintained, as the farm I got it from looked like reheated hell served as sunday brunch and the quad was PACKED with horse manure. As such, Id like to do an oil change on it, but Im having a hard time finding any info on this quad as to where the filter is, how many quarts, etc etc. Everything I find is either for the earlier models, or the later ozark model.

The filter will be on the right side of the bike(when you are sitting on it) down at the bottom of the case, there will be 3 bolts you will have to take out then pop the cover off to access it. Note there are two sets of 3 bolts on that same side but as I said it will be the bottom three. Also on that side, if you have cleaned it good enough to see, you will see the sight glass that allows you to check the oil level and right below that there should be some numbers with ML after it this will tell you how many quarts of oil you need to use, Just remember that each quart is 941.1764905 so you will just divide the number on the case by that number to figure out how many to use. Let me know if you need to know anything else.

Thanks. So Im assuming the big fill plug I see on the back, right hand side of the axle case is for the engine and everything then?

There is a zuki shop just up the road from me, so I should prolly drop in and see if they have a clymer manual for it. Feels like I may need to do a clutch in the future. It likes to slip a bit in the higher gears and then locks in.

Yep your assumption is correct, and just in case you do not know there should be 2 drain plugs on the bottom of the bike one for the oil in the crankcase and one for the rest of the oil in the transmission. I always take both out of mine just to make sure I get all of the old oil out. If I am not mistaken there is an adjustment that you can do on it but I am not 100% sure of where that is, I am more into the engine side of things and normally let someone else do the trans stuff for the most part. Maybe someone can chime in on that part for me.
I wish I had a dealer that close to me the closest one I have is over an hour away and it sucks having to drive all the way over there to just pick up little parts I may need.

I just noticed your saints picture. I spent 2 years living in downtown NOLA. Moved back to WA just before Katrina. Used to ride all over LA and MS with a banshee and a BigBear 350. Mostly rode the Spillway tho.

Very cool, I grew up in Shreveport but I am a die hard Saints fan born and bred. I live in NE MS now but I am hoping to move back to Shreveport in a year or so.

thanks. Yeah, I got under the bike today and found the site glass for the oil level, and the oil cap says 10w40 on it, so just need to run up to the zuki shop tomorrow and get some goodies.

whats up with the "no clymer manual" for the 99 to 01 ltf250s? I can find everything BEFORE that, and the Ozarks afterwards, but nothing on my year.

Other than that, the bike is awesome. Ive yet to find a place on my property to get it stuck really good that a little body english doesnt get me out of. I spent 2 years in the gulf coast mud, so I know how to get something stuck!

Where i live we call these quads TANKS,they are near impossible to get stuck and their low center of gravity makes them a dream to ride and own.

Hey, try this site for your service manual. It isn't a clymer manual but a Suzuki Authorized service repair manual. The cost of the manual is 74.95$ and covers the Suzuki ltf250 2wd and 4wd models from 1999 to 2002. Here is the link: http://www.repairmanual.com/category...k1-quadrunner/
