I have never seen the glass as a replacable part, however if you can buy it and the seal as a spare part from BMW it should press in with a little loctite master gasket. seeing the actual seal should give a good indication of how it fits. I hope it is in the clutch casing and not the crank case, as i guess it would install from the inside

2000 Honda CBR 600 F(4)Y how to check the oil

Hi, Anonymous if you are experiencing excessive oil coming out of the crankcase breather or air filter please drain all engine oil and replace half of the same oil that comes out. Many riders are overfilling their oil system because they do not know how to properly read their oil site glass or dipstick. The following procedure works on nearly all 4 stroke engines but to be on the safe side you should refer to your owners manual. Use your center stand if you have one.
1. Bring the engine up to operating temperature or let idle for 5 minutes.
2. Turn off your engine and let it sit for 2 minutes, this will allow the oil from the top end to drain to the bottom.
3. Hold your bike straight up or on the center stand and wait 2 minutes for the oil in the bottom of the engine to be level in the sight glass or on the dipstick.
4. Your oil level should be between the top full mark and the bottom add oil mark.
5. Never overfill your oil system it will cause problems:
a. oil leaking out of exhaust pipes.
b. oil leaking out of breather pipe/hose.
c. oil carryover into the air cleaner.
6. Your oil site glass must "NEVER" be completely full or empty drain or add oil as necessary.
7. Your oil dipstick must "NEVER" be over the full mark and should never be below the add mark drain or add oil as needed.

Hi. I have a 2009 BMW r1200rtse motorbike. I serviced it at 10,000klms and it is now on 15,000. The oil light came on and I see no oil leaks. I would love to get a PDF owners manual and know if the sight...

I have same model. The boxer engines do use oil and the levels need to be checked regularly. The sight glass at the bottom left hand side of the engine is for oil and the oil needs to be in the red ring. FYI my bike uses about 250ml of oil every 2000 miles or so. I always keep a bottle of Castrol Power in the garage! Somewhat perversely the oil consumption reduces as mileage increases. Plenty of infromation about this on the Internet!

How do you check the oil level on the 2002 BMW r1150r?

Just put the bike up on it's stand or use the kick stand with a shim under to get the bike near level.
Then use a flash light and look low on the left side of the engine and you'll
see a small round flush mounted glass the size of a nickle.
The oil should appear dark on the bottom half of that sight glass and if properly filled said level will cut right through the middle of the glass...if the dark line is below half then add oil!

i dont know exactly how much oil you need, when you put oil in your motorbike you can see a small window glass( right side) on your engine. just put oil up to middle of it.

You have either a dipstick or sightglass correct? The oil goes in the dipstick hole . After oil and filter change pour in 1 qt of oil and check your level w/dipstick or sightglass. Slowly top up your oil checking every 1/4 qt you pour in. Bike should be held level on level 3 qts of synthetic oil when ur at the store....Good Luck to you friend....Tim
p.s. if you don't have an owners manual, get one from your dealer,they are an invaluable tool.
