Oil fluid level question for DL1000- To the full level with kickstand or held upright
I know this has been asked 1000 times, and I did search, and I did find a lot of threads, and I think its 2.9 liters for a fluid change plain and simple.
The suzi dealer told me its 3.7- I said I thought it was 2.9 per the manual, and he insisted it was 3.7. I bought 4 quarts, and poured 3 in. If I have my girlfriend hold up the bike "straight", it comes somewhere between the empty and overfilled mark (can anyone actually hold a bike straight?) but on the kickstand it doesnt register. Suzi dealer told me it should hit "full" on the kickstand. About an extra .7 would probably do it. My manual is wrong on my camaro too...
Any takers? Is it 2.9 liters or to "full" on the kickstand.
When I got my oil changed at the dealer last year, it was to "full" on the kickstand, and I've been driving like that for a year....
