Question about 1998 Honda CBR 600 F(3)W
Just bought the bike and I need to know how to check the oil and add oil if necessary also how to read the oil stick. Also how often should i get the oil changed being that i don"t know when the oil was last changed? Thanks
Oil should be changed every 2 to3K miles. Anytime i buy a used bike i drain the oil right away cause u never know what might be in there...I recommend Castrol Syntec Actevo 10-40 wt. motorcyle oil..buy 4 qts...Put bike level on level ground and after you have drained oil and spun on a new filter...put in 2 qts...then check dipsticks (crisscroos marks on bottom of dipstick should be covered in oil when oil is full) slowly top off checking dipstick frequently so as not to overfill...proper dipstick check is to unscrew stick, wipe it off and reinsert without screwing it in, when oil is to top of crisscross you are full...My friends 2002 F4 has a sight glass NOT a dipstick so incase that's what you have watch oil level in sight glass (should be 1/2 to 3/4 full) Drainplug is under engine and is 17 mm...Good Luck to you friend....Tim
