SOURCE: how many quarts of oil does it hold?

look on the engine case nearest the dipstick for a "CC" designation...All quarts of oil show a "CC" measurement on their bottle...Use that designation on the engine and do the math to arrive at the capacity. You can use ANY oil you want within the correct weight ie: 15/40W. I'd recommend Shell Rotella Synthetic 15/40W about $5 qt at Walmart.
My best guess on capacity is near 1.8qts...Why not add 1.5 qts and check using the dipstick?
Good Luck

Not quite sure with the conversion, but i used to ride gsf before and the engine oil changed was 3.5 liters...you can have a try . make your oil sight glass as your reference...Bike should be at center stand or straight enough.

SOURCE: my harley has a small leak coming from the air

Regrettably, a small oil leak from the air cleaner assembly is "normal". This is because the EPA requires all crankcase emissions to be routed to the intake system so that it can be burned in the engine. The result is that oil mist in the crankcase vented condenses in the air cleaner and eventually drips out.

The crankcase vent for your Sporty is in the heads. If you noticed, there are two large bolts that are hollow holding the air filter backing plate on. The crankcase vents into the air cleaner assembly through these two bolts. There is an "unbrella valve" in the rocker box center section that allows the air to flow one way but not the other. There are baffles in this area to keep the oil mist to a minimum but still there is some in the air coming out of the engine.

There are a few kits available on the aftermarket for re-routing this crankcase vent. You can direct the exit anywhere you wish using one of these kits. Most people just route the hose down and exit it under the bike just in front of the rear wheel.

When adding oil to your bike, only add the oil when the engine is hot. On your dipstick, you have two marks. The upper mark represents "FULL HOT" while the lower mark represents 'FULL COLD", Do not overfill. Check the level with the bike on the side stand.

Good Luck
steve

How many quarts of motorcycle oil do I put in my 88 cbr1000 Honda and what kinda ..... I'm doing a oil change and oil filter change


Once the old oil is completely drained, just add 3 quarts of 10-40w oil, then make sure the bike is sitting level and add some more oil slowly keeping a close eye on the glass window on the side case. It should take right around 3.4 quarts of oil. It can vary a little bit depending on what kind of oil filter you are using. Some filters hold a little more then others. It is better to underfill the motor than to overfill it. So keep this in mind. Don't waste your money on those high priced synthetics or racing oils. I worked at a few motorcycle dealerships in the past, and we always set up brand new motorcycles with 10-40w or 20-50w oils in both dirtbikes and streetbikes.

How many litres of oil does a 2007 Yamaha Roadliner take?? Thanks Guy


The manual says that the bike holds 5.18 US quarts WITH a filter change. I change the filter with every oil change. If you don't intend to remove the filter, make sure you know your fluid capacities.

The instruction calls for putting in half the oil - 2.6 quarts - into the bike (make sure you replace the filler cap!), starting the bike and giving it a few revs to circulate the oil. Shut off the bike and add the rest of the oil.

Stock oil filter installed: 3.17 quarts if no filter change - 3.3 quarts if filter changed

DO NOT OVERFILL! FYi - there's a site glass on the left side of the bike, under the left riders peg. Make sure the bike is level, oil is warm and bike is off - do not let the oil get over the upper mark... just under the upper mark is good, a little closer to middle is better.

How do you check the oil level on 2003 suzuki savage 650, and how do you change the oil on same bike, and what is the oil capacity for this bike, and does it have an oil filter? thanks. mike


at the bottom of the engine on the brake side of the bike, around the gearbox, there's a look through window with a low level and a high level marked on it, the oil should be between those after it's heated, check it hot, let the engine run 3 minutes or so, you have to put the bike up right to correctly check the oil level, which means you'll need a friend to hold the bike up while you look at the level through the window, or you can use a brick or something under the kick stand to keep the bike more level, just be careful. To change the oil, you'll need to get an oil filter and 2.1 quarts (I think that's the right amount, it's 2000 ml) of 10w - 40 oil and then all the stuff to catch the old oil and funnels and rags and an allen wrench, I think it'll be a 4mm allen wrench, but I'm not sure on that, check with your bike, there are 3 allen wrench bolts that are holding a panel onto your gear box, behind this panel is your oil filter. Drain oil first before taking this panel off and changing your filter, there's bolt on the kickstand side of the engine at the bottom of the bike, it's sideways, this is the drain plug for the oil, it'll probably be hot so careful unscrewing it, take it out and the oil will pour out, but it's sideways so it's going to be messy, use a funnel or something to direct the oil into a bucket or container of some kind. after oil is drained, replace drain plug, now use an allen wrench and take off the panel on your gear box, pull out the oil filter, discard of properly, put the new oil filter in. put the panel back on the gear box. on the same side there's a black plastic turn screw cap that's where the new 2.1 quarts of oil goes in there. if you don't change the filter the amount of oil you use is less, put the plastic cap back on and you're done. 

I reccomend taking it to a mechanic to do this, but, I'm going to do mine myself, I think I'm just going to add oil to mine, it's low, I have a 2008 Suzuki S-40 which is the same thing as a Savage, with just different badging. 

I am not a professional or anything so, I'm just reading from the owner's manual that came with my bike. best of luck.

How much oil do i need to add to my 02 road king,after i have drained all the old oil


after all the old oil has drained and the old filter has been removed. add 3.5 quarts of genuine H-D 20w50 to the oil tank. also add a few ounces of H-D 20w50 to the new oil filter and lightly coat the rubber gasket on the oil filter. Start the bike and let it warm up fully, then check your oil level with the bike on the kickstand. you may need to add another 1/4 of a quart.
