Remove oil cup and >baffle, thoroughly clean them and refill to indicated level with same grade of new oil as used in engine. Do not fill oil cup above indicated oil level as a higher level will restrict passage of air through cleaner and upset carburetion to the extent that engine may not start at all, or at best run very irregularly. The effect is the same as running with choke partially or fully closed.

When reassembling, observe that oil cup gasket is in place and make sure oil cup and baffle are properly seated against gasket and secured to cleaner housing. Careless assembly is likely to result in an oil leak between cup and cleaner housing and possibly a lost cup.

Occasionally, at time of servicing oil cup, complete cleaner should be removed from motorcycle and immersed for a time in a bucket of gasoline or kerosene (or solvent). Cleaner element, which cannot be removed from housing, must be thoroughly flushed to wash out accumulated dirt. After flushing, dry thoroughly (use an air hose if available) and apply a few squirts of engine oil to inside of cleaner element, using oil can.

Note: Observe instructions on air cleaner body.
