1) just got myself a 996S that comes with ohlins rear shock and ohlins damper, marchesini rims, showa nitrate-coated forks.. but read from forums that S models have serial numbers on the yoke? mine doesn't though... any way to check wat model is it through the chasis number?
2) do u guys ever switch on the headlight/dim light piror to cranking up the bike? the ex-owner, whom is my friend, told me if cranking up the bike with the headlight/dim light on is unsucessful for 2 times, the battery would be drained up (he encountered before). thus, for night riding, i dare not even on the headlights expect for the dim light (the middle switch for the headlight on/off).
3) for my bike, i need to push in the red button at the left side (near the headlight switch) to on the headlights. is this the way it should be? if not, it will just be the normal dim lights.
4) how much engine oil is need for this machine? with and without oil filter?
S models do not have serial number plaques. That would be the R models and maybe some SPS models.
Mine starts great with the headlight on or off or on high or dipped beam. The headlight setting does not matter. It doesn't on your either, if your battery is not bad.
I'm not sure I understand #3. If you have a headlight switch, there will be at least one headlight on when the switch is all the way forward in the "ON" positon. The high/dipped switch turns both lights on in US models and switches between the high and dipped bulb in Euro models. Do you have a burned out bulb?
A 996 takes 3.8l for an oil and filter change.
