Advice needed: TT600R Dry sump?

Recommended Posts

Can anyone tell me what a dry sump is?

Also when checking the oil through the side lens, does the engine need to be running?

All advice greatly welcomed.

Thanks

🙂

when the engine oil (4 stroke obviously) is not stored under the engine in a traditional sump it is said to have dry sump. the oil is stored elsewhere in another container and fed into the engine from there. these are useful in race cars as they prevent oil surges. they would be good on a bike i presume because they would allow you to wheelie 4 ages without oil starvation. hope that answers ur Q!

Generaly you just want the bike upright to check through a sight glass.
