Don't forget that the dipstick must be unscrewed and just resting on the threads, not screwed in, when "dipping" :)

For those of us who are centre-standingly challenged...

What's the ideal level for when the bikes on the side stand?
The bike must be level, just find a wall or lamppost to support the bike while dipping the oil.

Also, it is supposed to be checked hot. So run the bike for 5 minutes then check it. You are able to check it sitting on the bike if you don't have a centre stand. The top mark is where mine sits.


Edited as I put side stand instead of centre stand... Doh!! lol

Oh and make sure your on level ground (sorry for mentioning the obvious) :)
