1098S 1st oil change, question on oil amount?
I just performed my first oil change on a new to me 2008 1098S and have a question regarding oil capacity. I did a dump oil/replace new screw on filter and installed 3L. The owners manual states 3.7L when performing an oil change and the service manual states 3.4L when doing the same operation? My dealer told me 3.0L..... I installed the 3.0L and the oil level is at 3/4 between the low mark and the high/max. mark lines on the RH engine case cover. Is this sufficient or do I need to top it off to the max. line? The service manual gives mixed info on where it should be stating that when performing an oil change it should be at the max. line on the RH engine case cover but also states when "checking oil level" it should be somewhere/anywhere between the low line and the max. line on the RH engine case cover.
What amount/level have you all been installing(liters) when performing an oil change on your bike?
