    650 L Oil Consumption

    Thanks. I used the Clymer manual and it doesnt say anything about revving when you check the oil level. So I'm finally happy to know this, because it was very confusing that everytime you check you would get different readings, or no readings (the oil level is below the dipstick). It was scary. Thanks again Joe

    650 L Oil Consumption

    Thanks for the replies! According to the manual, to check the oil level you must let the engine idle for 2-3 minutes, shut the engine off and let it settle, and if the oil level is low then add oil. When i do this check, the oil level is below the dipstick. But when I take a ride around the block, shut it off and wait 5 minutes for it to settle the oil level is at the top. I changed my oil a week ago (about 300 miles) and put 2 quarts in. I'm confused about what is the correct method to check the oil because the manuals way gives conflicting results. Thanks in advance

    I have a 2001 xr650L with 10km's on it. Does anyone have any idea as to what the acceptable oil consumption is for this bike? Thanks -Joe
