Honda Express Oil Change: Essential Tools and Comprehensive Process Guide

In today’s blog, I will guide you through the process of changing the oil in a 1980 Honda Express scooter. It’s a simple task that only requires a few tools and can help keep your scooter in good condition. Let’s get started!

Tools You’ll Need

  • 14 millimeter wrench
  • 10 millimeter socket
  • 10W40 oil
  • Container for catching the oil

The Oil Change Process

First, locate the drain screw on the scooter and use the 10 millimeter socket to remove it. Make sure to have a container ready to catch the oil as it drains out. Next, use the 14 millimeter wrench to remove the bolt that holds the oil. If the bolt is difficult to remove, use a second wrench to provide more leverage.

Once the oil has drained out completely, it’s time to refill the scooter with fresh oil. You can use a funnel or create a makeshift funnel using a bottle and a tube to pour the new oil into the scooter. Be sure to use the recommended 10W40 oil for the best results.

When the oil starts to overflow, it’s an indication that the scooter is adequately filled. Secure the bolt back in place using the wrench, and your oil change is complete!


Changing the oil in a 1980 Honda Express scooter is a straightforward process that can be done with minimal tools and time. By performing regular oil changes, you can help maintain the performance and longevity of your scooter. I hope this guide has been helpful, and you feel more confident in tackling this task on your own. Happy riding!
