For those of you who are do it yourselfers out there I have a question.
This past weekend, I changed the oil and filter on my 2008 250R and added exactly 1.7 quarts (I measured it twice) I started the bike, checked for leaks (there were none) and went around the block with no problems, however, after putting the bike back in the garage and waiting about 15 minutes I checked the sight glass (after leveling the bike of course) and noticed the amount of oil barely went over the first mark of the sight glass.
Thinking that I might need to wait until the oil settles I tried it again about an hour later with the same result (Oil barely going over the first mark of the sight glass)
My questions are is this normal or does my bike needs more oil than what the service manual calls for?
Any advise / help will be greatly appreciated
