I have a 2001 grizzly 600 and I just bought it and I dont have a manual. I wanna check the oil but I'm not sure where the well is. I've taken off the plastic protectors on the side which is where I thought it would be but no luck. Anyone know where it is?

Go to the Yamaha web site and download a copy of the Owner's Manual there. It is a free download. If you want a service manual, they are copy righted and there are different sites that have them. I have gotten mine off ebay on cd. The cd makes it easy to search and print the pages I will be using. This keeps a clean master copy.

Here is a link to the Yamaha web site for getting the Owners Manual:

My Yamaha Prompt - Owners Manual

Here are some ebay listings for the Service/Repair Manuals.

grizzly 600 service manual items - Get great deals on eBay Motors, Books items on eBay.com!


To check the oil, the 600 has a oil level window on the lower left side of the crankcase cover. Make sure the oil is between the high and low level marks. It looks like that is between 1/2 and 3/4 high in the window.

The oil fill plug is right behind the shift rod on the left side when sitting on the ATV no need to remove plastics, but you will need a funnel with a neck to add oil. The sight window to check the level is right between the pull start and the oil filter cover on the same side, pretty low down.

If you do not know the maintenance history of this quad (and, unless you bought it from a close relative, you really don't), now is a good time to change all the fluids; oil & filter, differential fluid, final drive fluid. Be sure to use the proper fluid for each and remember, you MUST use motorcycle oil in the crankcase (compatible with a wet clutch)...do NOT use automotive oil or the wet clutch will slip big time.

Here's the oil check window (below the oil filter cover, left engine side):



You might have to wipe the window off with a rag to see it, if it's covered with oil/dirt.
