oil change on a xr650l '07

Recommended Posts

When I change my oil and fill it back up there is no reading on the dipstick. 2.06 qts with filter change right?

After an oil and filter change mine takes 2.5L to bring the level up to the halfway point on the dipstick (engine warm, bike straight, dipstick not screwed in).

:lol:

yeah with oil and filter swap I find it takes a lil more than the manual states

brings it about 2/3 up from the low mark to high at full operating temps

I check it as soon as I shut down when returning home

+1 one that . When I do a oil and filter change I put one qt in start let idle for about 10 secs shut her down fill with one more qt than start it and take it around the block going threw all the gears bring it in shut it down take out the dipstick and you will find it will take about 1/2 qt more . Be shut to check with bike straight up right after shut down and stick not screwed in. I run mine at the top of the full line with no problems.
