PRO TIP: Warm up the oil before draining it by running the engine for a couple of minutes so the oil drains out easier.
How to Change the Oil in a Honda Rebel 250
Step 1. Position a drain pan under the engine and remove the dipstick.
PRO TIP: Removing the dipstick allows the engine to vent properly and the old engine oil to drain faster.
Step 2. Remove the 17mm drain bolt and crush washer from the lower left side of the engine, and let the oil drain out completely.
Step 3. Install a new crush washer, then reinstall the drain bolt and torque it to 18 foot-pounds.
PRO TIP: Clean off any oil that dripped onto the central exhaust balance pipe to prevent it from burning and smoking when you next run the motorcycle.
Step 4. Fill the engine with 1.6 quarts of Honda GN4 10W-30 engine oil and reinstall the dipstick.
Step 5. Start the engine, and let it idle for 15 seconds to circulate the new oil through the engine. Next, shut off the engine and let it rest for a minute.
Step 6. Remove and clean the dipstick. Then, put it back in the crankcase but don't screw it in, just let it rest flush on the crankcase. Remove the dipstick again and check the oil level. Top off the oil if necessary and you're done.
