Does The TaoTao TBR7 Have An Oil Filter? – FAQ

Simply put, the TaoTao TBR7 does not have an oil filter. However, the TBR7 has an oil screen. This oil screen collects large particles that can damage the engine and accelerate wear and tear.

Unlike using the drain plug located at the bottom of the TaoTao TBR7’s engine, I drain the oil and clean the oil screen all in one step.

The oil screen is located on the left side of the motorcycle. This site is the same side the bike leans on when on the kickstand. Using the oil screen cap allows the oil to drain quicker and access to the screen housing is more accessible and cleaner than using the drain plug I found.

Just Me…Newly Licensed.

Hi I’m Tom, A New Motorcycle Rider and Blog Author.

I am a new rider(Pa Learners Permit at the end of 2020, and I received a Pa Motorcycle License in 2021 after passing a Motorcycle Safety Course).

I bought my first motorcycle, a TaoTao TBR7, at the beginning of 2021 and have been doing upgrades on that motorcycle since.

I added to my motorcycle collection by buying a Boom Vader Gen 2 in 2022, and that Grom-Clone motorcycle has been upgraded by me as well.

I continue to ride my Boom Vader Gen 2 motorcycle as well as my TaoTao TBR7 dual-sport bike.

Fun Fact: I’ve only been on one group ride.
