Question about 2003 Suzuki AN 650 Burgman
This is the second time that the oil fill line in the engine is above full. I had emptied some out when I had first changed the fluids at the 600 mile mark. I had double checked the oil levels for all at 602 miles. All i had to do was empty some engine oil out, and the level was between L and F. I checked the final gear oil, some oil oozed out of there. Which if I am correct, that is how you know the gear box is full. I also check the tranny oil. In that compartment some oil oozed out as well, but it was not very much. I had also checked levels again at 1000 miles and the oil line was in between the low and full. Today I currently have 1300 miles on my K5 650, and the engine oil is above full again. Can someone tell me why this is happening? I am going to check the transmission oil to see if I am low in there.
It's quite possible that when you fill the motor you are checking the oil level shortly thereafter, i.e. within 10 minutes, or you are filling the oil and checking what the level is BEFORE starting the motor (in this case the oil has not had chance to circulate and drain back in to the sump). Once the bike stands for an extended period (a couple of hours or overnight) you will find that the oil has drained from the head of the motor, and other places, back into the sump and therefore shows at a higher level in the sight gauge.
