Engine Oil and Oil Filter

Vehicle operation with insufficient, deteriorated,
or contaminated engine oil will cause accelerated
wear and may result in engine seizure, accident,
and injury. Check the oil level before each use and
change the oil and filter according to the periodic
maintenance chart.

Oil Level Inspection

Check that the engine oil level is between the upper [A]
and lower [B] levels in the oil level inspection window.
Situate the motorcycle so that it is perpendicular to the
ground.
If the motorcycle has just been used, wait several min-
utes for all the oil to drain down.
If the oil has just been changed, start the engine and
run it for several minutes at idle speed. This fills the oil
filter with oil. Stop the engine, then wait several minutes
until the oil settles.
Racing the engine before the oil reaches every part
can cause engine seizure.
If the oil level is too high, remove the excess oil, using a
syringe or other suitable device.
If the oil level is too low, add the correct amount of oil.
Use the same type and make of oil that is already in the
engine.
If the engine oil type and make are unknown, use any
brand of the specified oil to top off the level rather than
running the engine with the oil level low. Then at your
earliest convenience, change the oil completely.

Refer to the Engine Oil Change in the Periodic Mainte-
nance chapter.
