Hi Fly, welcome to Canned-Ham


What sort of help are you looking for? I have the workshop manuals and parts book for the bike and can generally help with most queries. So ask away!

I could use the shop books . But I am In need of some info on oil for this bike . Everything I have foud so far says oil inject . But can't find a place to put oil in yet . Then I foud a little info saying its a premix mix bike 30to 1 . Pluse is this a hard bike to come by ? I can not find hardly anything about this bike I see the 1980 125 and the 250 but nothing about the 400 ? And wow thanks for getting back to me your the first person that has . Just let me know how much for shop books and thanks again . Fly..

Your bike should be premix only. Only the smaller engined bikes – 125/175/250 up to about 1979 were oil injected. If you look under Can-Am Bikes on the website, then MX, then scroll down to the MX-6 and you will see your bike – assuming it is a 1980 model as you say. It should be an MX-6 400.


If you give me the frame number I will confirm what bike it is. And I hope you have strong arms, 'cause once you get it going it will want to tear them off!


As for the correct oil for it, you need a thin gear oil or ATF.

That will be a lot of bike. Be careful :)


Unless you're really ringing it out, 40-1 with good quality 2 stroke oil is fine, and like Chris says, ATF or similar in the transmission. Be careful changing the transmission oil. The drain bolt is the one you need an Allen key for. If it's like the smaller motors, it take 1.2 L
