How to check your engine oil

  • Start the engine & leave the bike running for 5 minutes to warm up the oil.
  • Switch off the bike and leave for 15 minutes to allow the oil to settle.
  • Ensure your bike is parked on a level surface & stood up straight.
  • Compare the oil level in the sight glass to your manufacturer´s recommendation. This should be somewhere between the min/max mark.
  • If the oil is between the min/max line you are good to go. If it’s too low, you must top up the oil & fill to the desired level.
