Yamaha MT-07 Engine Oil Capacity and Best Oil Specifications



Here's a manual guide on the engine oil capacity of the Yamaha MT-07 for the production years 2014-2023. This motorcycle features an engine with a capacity of 689 cm³ and 2 DOHC cylinders.

In addition to official information regarding engine oil capacity, there are also clear instructions on how to change the engine oil and the torque required to tighten the oil drain plug bolt.

Equally important is information on the specifications of the engine oil suitable for the MT-07 to ensure its performance remains optimal and its durability is extended.

Engine oil and oil filter cartridge

The engine oil level should be checked before each ride. In addition, the oil must be changed and the oil filter cartridge replaced at the intervals specified in the periodic maintenance and lubrication chart.

To check the engine oil level
  1. Place the vehicle on a level surface and hold it in an upright position. A slight tilt to the side can result in a false reading.

  2. Start the engine, warm it up for several minutes, and then turn it off.

  3. Wait a few minutes for the oil level to settle for an accurate reading, and then check the oil level through the engine oil level check window located at the bottom-left side of the crankcase.

    The engine oil should be between the minimum and maximum level marks.



    1. Engine oil filler cap
    2. Engine oil level check window
    3. Maximum level mark
    4. Minimum level mark
  4. If the engine oil is below the minimum level mark, add sufficient oil of the recommended type to raise it to the correct level.

    Check the O-ring for damage, and replace it if necessary.

    2. O-ring
To change the engine oil (with or without oil filter cartridge replacement)
  1. Place the vehicle on a level surface.

  2. Start the engine, warm it up for several minutes, and then turn it off.

  3. Place an oil pan under the engine to collect the used oil.

  4. Remove the engine oil filler cap, the engine oil drain bolt and its gasket to drain the oil from the crankcase.



    1. Engine oil drain bolt
    2. Gasket

    Skip steps 5–7 if the oil filter cartridge is not being replaced.

  5. Remove the oil filter cartridge with an oil filter wrench.

    2. Oil filter cartridge

    An oil filter wrench is available at a Yamaha dealer.

  6. Apply a thin coat of clean engine oil to the O-ring of the new oil filter cartridge.



    1. O-ring

    Make sure that the O-ring is properly seated.

  7. Install the new oil filter cartridge with an oil filter wrench, and then tighten it to the specified torque with a torque wrench.



    1. Torque wrench
    Tightening torque:
    Oil filter cartridge:
    17 N·m (1.7 kgf·m, 13 lb·ft)
  8. Install the engine oil drain bolt and its new gasket, and then tighten the bolt to the specified torque.

    Tightening torque:
    Engine oil drain bolt:
    43 N·m (4.3 kgf·m, 32 lb·ft)
  9. Refill with the specified amount of the recommended engine oil.

    Engine oil:

    Recommended brand:



    SAE viscosity grades:

    10W-40, 10W-50, 15W-40, 20W-40 or 20W-50



    Recommended engine oil grade:

    API service SG type or higher, JASO standard MA

    Engine oil quantity:

    • Oil change:

      2.30 L (2.43 US qt, 2.02 Imp.qt)

    • With oil filter removal:

      2.60 L (2.75 US qt, 2.29 Imp.qt)

    Be sure to wipe off spilled oil on any parts after the engine and exhaust system have cooled down.
    • In order to prevent clutch slippage (since the engine oil also lubricates the clutch), do not mix any chemical additives. Do not use oils with a diesel specification of “CD” or oils of a higher quality than specified. In addition, do not use oils labeled “ENERGY CONSERVING II” or higher.
    • Make sure that no foreign material enters the crankcase.
  10. Check the O-ring for damage, and replace it if necessary.



    1. Engine oil filler cap
    2. O-ring
  11. Install and tighten the engine oil filler cap.

  12. Start the engine, and then let it idle for several minutes while checking it for oil leakage. If oil is leaking, immediately turn the engine off and check for the cause.

    After the engine is started, the engine oil pressure warning light should go off.

    If the oil pressure warning light flickers or remains on even if the oil level is correct, immediately turn the engine off and have a Yamaha dealer check the vehicle.

  13. Turn the engine off, wait a few minutes for the oil level to settle for an accurate reading, and then check the oil level and correct it if necessary.
