Oil Level Check 2012
WHich is the most accurate way of checking the oil level: When cold and put on the centre stand for several minutes, the level in the glass is about a third way up from the minimum mark. When I use the suggested Suzuki owners book method, I put the bike on the centre stand, run the engine through the gears for 3 minutes, switch off and leave for 3 minutes, the level is only a fraction above the minimum mark. If I ride the bike for an hour, put it on the centre stand and leave for several minutes, the level is just below the maximum mark. It has been suggested to me that the last method will make it look higher than it really is? I am used to checking levels on other bikes, but never had to top up.The bike has had its 600 mile service, and I didn't notice this issue before this. I don't want to overfill, but of course don't want it too low. If you think it needs a drop, how much do you think? Sorry for the log meander, but I want to get it right.
