Checking Oil - How and Why
To check the oil level in the bike I believe that the owners manual says to start the engine and get it into operating temp., then turn it off and let it stand on level ground for 3 min.
Why can't I just let it stand on level ground and check it in the morning before I go for a ride? I know that following the two different procedures will give me different results,... ? Is it like a car, where what you are checking is all of the oil in the bottom of the oil pan?
What does everyone else do?
