Just bought this bike, changed the oil on it, but when I put in the 0.63qt (20.16 fl oz), the sight glass is completely full and the owners manual says the oil should only be at halfway mark of sight glass. Anyone dealt with this before?
There are two separate oil systems on that engine. Did you drain one and fill the other?
I drained and filled both engine and gear separately
Did you use the same measured amount of oil to fill the oil filter housing?
No, I drained the engine oil and filter housing, replaced the filter and then added the 20.16 FL.oz
Recon your sposta fill you're oil filter housing once you have put a new one in. (lay on the side and pour oil around filter) crap set up!, but if you don't fill it completely with oil you will have extra oil when you fill the crank case, all evens out once you run it for a while .
