Like it says to add 125 ml of 4 stroke oil to the gearbox but I'm confused since it's a centrifugal clutch
Thanks for posting that. It looks like it has a gear box for the electric and pull start.
Can you post a couple good pics of your engine, the ones from the listing aren't very clear.

Here’s my other bike same thing with cover off. There not the exact same as bt80 but almost the same thing . It says automatic centrifugal clutch. Not wet centrifugal clutch. Casing still has the bolt hole we’re you would put oil.

Your regular clutch is still there but the case of the centrifugal has 3 or 4 gaskets that look like cardboard is there to clear the 3 poles on the clutch basket. Now the wheel looking thing is where the little bevel goes. There is a little gear under it. So your clutch lever still works too. You can pedal start it still and you still put it in rolling mode by squeezing lever. So It’s kind a confusing. If you put oil in it bye bye clutch pads.

Well f*#$ I put atf in already, on Amazon it says add 120ml. I'm wondering if they are different because yours has a clutch lever where mine doesn't. I haven't ran it yet either so might still be fine if I dump it out?

take the 4 screws on the outer part of the clutch cover shoot a picture. Post it here and will go from there. I don't need the lever though.

Dam I'm really not for sure. So on the amazon description page it does say oil. I'm stump here anyone else chime in here. I'll surf so more. So when was you planning to ride it?

So when you pull on the starter rope what happens on the clutch side? The only place for oil would be the gear housing on the left side, but I don't see any fill hole.

Can you post a copy of their instructions? That looks like a regular centrifugal clutch.

If that's ATF on your clutch, you can just wash it out with some brake clean.
