Buddy 125 Gear Oil Concern

Post by PistolPete7390 »

I just changed the gear oil in my 07 Buddy 125 and went for a ride, when I returned I have gear oil all over the back Tire, but zero sign of a leak without taking off the back tire. I'll have to do that tomorrow to really look. Really hoping its an over fill issue and not a bigger problem.

1. Is there a gear oil over flow valve that'll release excess gear oil when pressure is built up? I was riding it my scooter wide open.

2. How much gear oil goes in the buddy 125??

Thanks in advance!!!!

You probably overfilled it. It only takes 90 ml(or 90 cc) when you refill it. There should be a sticker near the fill hole that has the amount. Even if you only overfill it by a little bit it will make a pretty good mess.
