Most motor cycles have either, a dip stick, or a sight glass, you may need someone to hold the bike up straight while you check the oil level,

Check oil level dipstick qt


Hi Anonymous, the engine oil dipstick on Softail and Sportster models is located on the right hand front side of the oil tank and the Harley Bible says, engine should be at normal operating tempurature, let idle on jiffy stand for two minutes. Shut off engine and hold bike straight up and dipstick all the way in, correct engine oil level will be at the top full mark. Do not overfill oil tank as this will cause engine breathing issues. On Dyna and Touring models The engine oil dipsticks are located on the right front top corner of the transmission and the engine oil pan is underneath the transmission. The engine oil level is checked in the same manner as Softails and Sportsters. If you are having oil carryover or breathing issues (dipstick launch) try running oil level half way between the add and full marks, running the engine at this oil level will not harm normal operation. Good luck

Do u check trany on side stand r upright on 2001 dyna wide glide


Check the oil level in the transmission with the bike standing as straight up as safely possible. Don't let it fall over. The oil level should be between the two marks on the dipstick. Your transmission holds 20-24 ounces of oil. Check the engine oil with the bike on the sidestand and keep the oil level between the two marks on the stick. Avoid "topping off" the oil tank. As long as the level is between the two lines, it's fine.

GS100GK 1982 How do check the oil level in the sit glass? With bick on center stand? or on the side stand


Check the oil level with the bike level, on the center stand, either before you start the engine in the morning or after it's had at least 5-10 minutes for oil to trickle down after you turn off the motor.

That's all there is to it!

Fluid capasities in a 2002 dyna twin cam. oil, trans,primary?


Engine oil - 3 qts
Primary oil - 34-42 oz.
transmission - 20-24 ounces.

The engine oil and the transmission oil both have dipsticks. Maintain the oil levels according to the dipstick indications. Each dipstick has two marks. The top mark represents "FULL HOT" while the lower mark represents "FULL COLD" . Check the engine oil with the bike on the side stand. Check the transmission oil with the bike standing straight up.

On the primary, check or add oil with the bike standing straight up. Do not overfill. The oil level should be no higher than the lowest edge of the clutch spring. If you put too much oil in the primary, the clutch will drag making it impossible to find neutral with the engine running.

Good Luck

Procedure to check oil level for RT1200 (police bike). Do I need to check the oil level when the bike is cold or after warm up??


Check oil when bike is cold...... here is the best procedure.

Ride bike (and enjoy)
Park bike on side stand, let sit for at least 10 minutes or overnight. (lets oil drain out of cooler into sump)
Put bike on center stand. Bike should be on level ground
Check oil level in window on lower LHS of engine.
Level should be anywhere inside of red circle in sight glass.
DO NOT OVERFILL let level get down to lower edge of red circle before adding oil

Good Luck!

Just bought it used. no owner's manual. how do i check the oil level?


Here is the most accurate way to check the oil on your R-RT.

Ride bike till it is fully warmed up - 10 minutes
Park bike on side stand for 10 minutes or longer.... overnight.
Put bike on center stand and look at oil level window on lower left side of engine. Oil level should be inside the red circle. Do not overfill!!

The absolute best time to check the oil is when the engine is cold and all oil has drained out of oil cooler and lines into the engine sump. Usually before riding... Once properly broken in, your engine will consume very little oil.

Engine oil


This bike does not have a dipstick; Instead, there is a sight glass low on the right side of the crankcase. To get an accurate reading of the oil level, the bike has to be level, not on the side stand.

Please let me know if this is helpful.

My '02 zx6r has oil in the air filter box. I found the vent tube from the engine/ transmission was spraying oil into the air box. Even before the oil would spew the engine would die when the hose was...


it sounds like there is to much oil in the engine the same thing happened to my zx6r, hold the bike upright on level ground then check oil level on the glass viewing window which is on the right hand side of engine, you should see oil level between the low and high marks, if level is above top line you will need to drain some oil out by undoing sump bolt or using a siphon, when ever checking oil level bike needs to be upright on levelish ground some people check oil levels when bike is on side stand which is wrong as it shows oil level as low when in-fact its probably right

Oil


Also check that bike is properly positioned. Is bike on level ground? With most bikes oil is checked on center stand or holding bike upright not on side stand. Also check manual some bikes say to check hot very few with cold motor. (many bikes with oil tanks will fill up crankcase and appear empty if checked cold especially after sitting for a long time) Most will say to wait a period of time after turning off motor (usually between 10 and 30 min.) but some say to check immediately after turning off. ,
