clarification: should the oil be at the threads with the scoot laying on its side, or standing up?


If you lay the bike on its side all the oil will run out.
Put it on the center stand on a level surface then fill till it starts to come out of the fill hole.

I use a squeeze bottle with a pointed tip that fits in the hole and it works great!

Mine says on the case 0.12 L Oil so that's about how much I put in it.
You shouldn't put too much because pressure can build up and damage the transmission.
Oh, and I used a 10 ml syringe which I got from the pharmacy (they didn't have a bigger one).

HEY FOX try it my way, drain the box, put drain plug back in, leave out fill plug then put small funnel on the breather hose and fill till it comes out FILL LEVEL HOLE, Job Done no messing with straws or anything else.

you must be local to me, You will get bike gear oil at Halfords, The drain plug is at the back end of the gearbox on the very bottom and the fill plug is just up from it on the side, it will look slightly different than the rest of the bolts.

When my SunL Cozumel 150 rolled over the 3000 mile mark, something was nagging at me. I've been changing the engine oil (SynTech 10W40) and new headlight bulbs (35W way better than the lousy 25W that came with it!)...but I then remembered I never changed the gear lube!

So, the first opportunity (at 3100 miles) I got a bottle of Maxima MTL 75wt
as I have to ride in cold weather. A dental irrigation syringe- for filling the gearbox, and 2 urine specimen cups, so I could measure what came out and replace it with the right amount.

UUGH! The stuff that drained out was like thick metallic gray paint- 120cc of this drained out. As the bike was on the centerstand, I rotated the rear wheel to rotate the gears. Then, using a marker- I marked the fluid level of the drained crud, and then transcribed one on the second cup- that was for the fresh MTL.

Not a bad idea- using the small syringe took a couple of minutes, but it tool almost all of the 120cc of the MTL. And with that, easy peasy!

Seems now my fuel ecomony has increased from about 73mpg to 84mpg
- and when I'm carrying a 2nd person, it's around 80mpg. Add the 12g rollers, the bike seems more spirited on the road- a bit slower on takeoff, but it gets up to speed better and it happily cruises at 60-65!

hey all...they say not to use synthetic oil until after the bike is broken in with a few miles on it...does the same apply for gear oil or can you use synthetic at the first change? thanks!

I don't think it matters so much here. The final drive gears are so over engineered that you could probably run Fairy Liquid in them and they would still last the life of the bike.

(DISCAIMER: Fairy Liquid is NOT a lubricant and may damage your gearbox....Mind you, no one has tried it, and it might work.)
