Check when engine is at operating temp; after turning off the engine wait at least five minutes for the oil to drain back into the sump. Make sure the cycle is upright and the surface is level.READ OFF THE OIL LEVEL AT THE SIGHT GLASS - MAX upper edge of ring mark, MIN lower edge of ring mark (the difference is approx. 0.1 gal / 0.5 liters. To add, remove oil filler plug and pour using a funnel.

I know how to change the oil but not sure how to check oil level??


Drain the oil, change the filter. Refill the system with the exact amount of oil stated by the manufacturer in the bike handbook. Some bikes have a window in the sump, with a level line, others have a dip stick system fixed to the filler plug. If it has non of these, before you drain the oil, dip the sump with a screw driver and make a mark on the screw driver at oil level, so at least you can get the oil level back to the same level before you drained it. (Use a long screw driver with a handle that won't go past the cap)

Have just purchased 1975-76 Z900 cant find any means of checking engine oil level


On the right side case cover, at the bottom towards the rear, there will be a sight glass.
If the oil is dirty, it seems hard to find because it blends in with the motor.

Just remember this, if it has a sight glass, usually the oil cap does not have a dipstick.

If the oil cap has a dipstick, then that is you means of checking oil level

I Have a BMW K1200GT 2006 and after i change oil and filter the oil check not work normally only OIL------ . Before it vas OIL< like OK Thanks


Hello. Unbelievably the change oil warning light is not resettable without either going to a dealership or owning an expensive "fault code BMW resetting tool". If you do a lot of your own work, the tool may be a good investment. here is a link to purchase one http://www.bimmerzone.com/resettool.htm#2

I'm having a problem with the oil level in my bike. I just did an oil change and I did exactly what the manual told me. I first warmed the oil by idling it, then I drained it. According to the manual, it...


Two possibilities........you didn't drain all the old oil out, or you didn't hold the bike in a straight upright position while checking the new oil. That is assuming you correctly interpreted the manual, and that you ran the bike for a few minutes before checking the oil level.

Checking the Oil


Hi George,
Excellent description of your problem, I presume you are keeping the bike upright when checking the level on your dipstick?
I remember on some Honda's there used to be a Sight glass set in the Gearbox casing a small round Window with level marks up either side so when bike held upright the glass should be half full.
George! you should be able to see oil on the stick without running the bike so keep upright and top up as necessary.
Hope this helped, please remember to rate my effort?
