When I got my bike (an 01 XR400) the oil dip stick was not the oem one, hence I opted for a new one. I bought the XR'S only dip stick. I see in the XR's owner's manual that the oem dip stick has a lower and an upper level for the oil. The XR'S only though doesn't. What it does have is a level that's painted red (and which wears off by simply wiping the stick) and a very small punched point about half an inch below that red painted spot. I tried checking my oil a few days ago, but I got confused. The manual says what many of you guys suggest; That is warming up the bike, and then let it idle for 5 minutes. Turn it off and then check the oil level without screwing in the dip stick. My question is what temperature should the bike be running before you shut it off and check it? I am currently running full synthetic MOTUL 10-40 motorcycle oil and the running temperature of my bike is usually between 175-185 degrees F. So, how should I proceed and check the oil you guys? I'm really confused and frustrated about this.
