With the bike on level ground, the oil level is roughly halfway between the Full mark and the top of the sight glass.
Should I drain some, or not worry about it?
Hey Young Fella OJB,
Was that on the side stand? The oil is correctly seen when the bike is dead vertical.
Your experience is less severe than my car oil change some 25 years ago.
Changed the oil and filter, with the car on the road, one wheel on the kerb, other on the road.
I had 4 litres of Castrol GTX2 oil and it needed close to that amount.
Filled it and checked frequently, and it need a little bit more. So it got another 4 litre bottle and repeated the little dose.
Nothing happened. Perhaps it's the angle, but the road side was up about 100 mm on blocks under the front wheel, so tip some in some.
Pull out the dip strick again, still no change.
Start the car for a few minutes, and check, still no change. WTF ???
Tip a lot more in, no rise on the dipstick.
7 litres in by now, and then the penny dropped. Why was the on the stick oil reddish.brown ?
You Dickhead Rob, had all the time been pulling out and checking the auto transmission dipstick !!!!
The ran fine with 7 litres of oil in a 4 litre sump for several minutes with me revving it on and off, and suffered no ill's then or after.draining it again.
You'll be fine as the others said.
