where is my oil going?

Recommended Posts

did an oil/filter change on the bike after my last ride, it took pretty close to 2L until it was up to the upper mark on the dip stick

I ran the bike for 5 minutes today to get it warmed up, checked the oil, dipstick is bare?

do I need to thread it in to check? or am I not reading it right. bike is upright on level ground

thx

Sometimes it takes 10-15 minutes of running for the oil to be pumped from the crankcase into the frame reservoir. Ride it for a while, kill the engine and immediately check the oil.

An oil change should take 1.8L of oil, the oil should be checked with the dipstick not screwed in. Here is the republish of the Honda manual on checking engine oil level.
