Oil Level - CONFUSED!

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

This is my first post - thanks in advance for the help.

 

I just bought a 2001 yz250f and I am a total noob!  I changed the oil and oil filter right away and added 1.6 Liters per online instructions.  The next day, when I checked the dip stick before starting, it showed no oil!  I added another 400mL and it showed oil at the lower level of my dipstick.  I then started my bike and rode around the house twice (3 min tops).  I turned my bike off and checked the oil and the dip stick was covered in oil!! Now I have oil WAY above the maximum line on the dip stick.  

 

Anyone know what happened and what I should do?

 

Thanks!!

Welcome to the boards.

I would also recommend to read the faq's. It answered all of my questions and brought up other things that I never even thought about.

You don't check the oil level in that bike after it sat all night long.

You check it after you run the engine for a couple of minutes, at least.

 

Read the Owner's Service Manual before you bust it up real good.
