I generally use two bottles of oil when I change it, which means either 2 liters or quarts. Never had an oil smell that I've noticed.

HI guys.. I think it might be from the ventlation hose that exits the black cannister box on right side of bike.The hose loops over to the left side and ends right next to the coolant recovery tank.Put your finger over it when the motor is idleing and you will feel slight pressure from crankcase fumes. thats how it is on my 2003 KLX400R. I think the KLX400SR (street version) is vented to the air box. I sometimes get the wiff of oil fumes when stopped, no big deal just make sure your hoses ar connected and not pinched anywhere L.M. :banghead:
