08 te450 oil capacity ?

Recommended Posts

I know the manual says 1.8 quarts but I jus changed the oil, filter, and cleaned screens.. And almost positive I got all oil out of the machine... And it shows full in the sight glass( to the top line) with jus a hair over 1.5 quarts..?? I ran it got it hot... Checked it... Ran it again got it hot and still at the same level... Seems 1.8 would be way over full.... I just recently got the bike and it's my first oil change on it... I did crank the preload on the rear spring(I'm a big guy) so the bike has no sag understand it's own weight... I'm puzzled, keep it were it's happy at the sight glass or go the full 1.8???

Pretty sure it was 1.6 liters when changing oil and filter. and cleaning two mesh filters...warm oil and leaned over a bit to drain as much as possible.   Yeah, use the sight glass...underfill then start and warm up and then add a bit more.   Once you do it it will be close to the same each time so just give it the 1.6 or whatever turns out to be correct.
