The oil level should be in the upper 1/3 of the window when you are done. the bike needs to be straight upright. after you have added the new oil, run the engine for 1 minute and then shut it off. Let the oil settle ( about 2 minutes ) and then check the level. Add until the level is in the upper 1/3 of the window.

How do i check the oil because i just bought a 2009 suzuki bulevard but there dip stick? and the dealer ship didnt give me an owners manuel

On newer model bikes there is no dipstick, just a cap.
so to check the oil level, you need to look on the engine cover itself.
there will be a sight glass, with 2 hash marks on the case .
lower line is minimum, top line is maximun

If the sight glass is too dirty, warm up the bike and then change the oil and filter.
Then watch the sight glass as you fill the oil.

if bike is equipped with a center stand, always check oil on center stand.
if no center stand then check oil with bike on kickstand.

The sight glass will be either on the right side lower engine cover
or left side lower engine cover.
it it round and about the size of a quater.

Hope to be helpful.
best regards
Big al

Oil light keeps coming on..checked my oil level kick stand down..shows full..cked. with bike standing level..same..sensor out on the panel or maybe time to change oil and filter

I would say it's the sensor, most bikes only read the oil level, they can't tell if the oil needs to be changed, that's something that your supposed to keep track of.

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!

Do I check the oil level on my Suzuki Volusia while it is on the kick stand or do I check it with the bike being held evenly level?

The bike must be level and not on the side stand. If you look closely, you should see the oil level index marks to the side of the sight glass. Just like the marks on an oil dipstick, as long as the oil level is between the marks, you're OK.

How do I check the oil level and add oil to an 83 yamaha maxim?

look down low on the right side of the engine, their is a "sight glass" that you will be able to see the oil level, tilt the bike a bit and you can see the oil, leave the bike on the regular kick stand and if you can see the oil in the glass the level is fine, above that is the oil fill cap, that is where you put the oil, i think your bike holds 2500 cm of oil, that is about 2 and 2/3 quarts of oil. remember that motorcycle oil is different than regular car oil, this is a common mistake which also leads to the clutch plates sticking together after a bike sits a while.

Oil drain plug location, oil capacity, what kind of maintenance should I do on thr tranny? 5000 miles

The drain plug is #10 here.Use 2 lit of oil, run the engine for a couple of minutes and then add some more to reach the level a bit above the middle between the lines on the glass gauge on the right hand crankcase cover.Measuring must be done with the bike standing straight and not on it's kick or middle stand.
There isn't any maintenance to be done to the transmission, apart from the clutch if your friction disks need to be replaced.The tranny is inside the engine and it is lubricated by the oil pump with the engine's oil.The only way to inspect it is to overhaul the engine.

Drain and change oil

I can't tell you all the particulars from the limited amount of pictures of your bike. -Remove the oil drain bolt on the bottom of the crankcase (the universal bolt size for bikes use a 17mm wrench). -Drain the oil (remember to recycle). -Re-install the drain bolt with a new sealing washer if necessary. -The oil fill cap should be some where on the top of the crankcase. About 1 or 25mm in diameter with a raised tab for turning. -Fill with recommended oil. -There are 2 ways to check oil level on dirt bikes: 1) Oil level check bolt. On the right side cover. 2) Oil level site glass. A 1 round piece of glass on the side of the crankcase. Usually by the kick start & R brake lever. -Always check the oil level with the bike upright (as if you were sitting on it). -Check bolt - fill with oil slowly until oil comes out of the check bolt and re-install it. -Sight glass - fill with oil to cover 3/4 of the sight glass. -Remember to hold the bike upright when adding oil.,
