Peugeot XP6 --70cc ? Year?

Hi Adamsb and welcome to the site :smile

You will need to find out if this is a gearbox oil leak and from where first thing.I am not familiar with this bike so googled a picture to see for myself.Looking at the clutch case(just below the filler cap) there seems to be a level screw just under half way down the case.To keep it topped up with oil until you find the leak and have it repaired,have somebody hold the bike in a upright position take the level screw out(if oil comes out its already overfilled)add oil slowly until oil starts running out of this level hole,replace the screw(check the sealing washer,or gasket, or O ring oil seal is sealing,replace if leaking) SAE 75-80W will do until you find out from a Main dealer what oil should be fitted.Good Luck


P.S. 10w40 will do if you get desperate,don't run out of oil :shock:
