I agree with billmiller41. The owners manual states that exactly "check the oil level while on level ground and resting on the kickstand". This means that the bike will be leaning Left.

Is the Motor and transmission oil together, or is it separate? Do i need to drain both to do an oil change? should i check the oil level on kickstand, or upright? Thanks


Engine and transmission/gearbox oil is on and the same, so there is one drain plug, one oil filter and one place to fill it all back up. The oil level is always checked with the bike upright and level.

Should bike be on the center stand when checking the motor oil level


Place the bike on level ground with the center kickstand to make the bike level. The oil should be between the marks on the dipstick.

My transmission on my 2001 flhrci suddenly started leaking. don't notice leakage when bike is upright


Clean all oil from the bike exterior. Leave it sitting in an upright position for a period of time. This may require a bike lift or other such device. Then look for leak source. Make sure oil level is not too high. When changing oil it often gets on the cross member and may leak when on the jiffy satnd for a while until it is all gone from this area. Make sure to always use thread sealant and a good o-ring on the drain plug.

2010 triumph thunderbird. Do i check oil level with bike level or leaned over on kickstand. I bought this bike used and no owners manual came with bike. Where can i get one?


You should check the oil level on a level ground and it should be standing. If your triumph motor has a center stand, better use that then check the oil level. If you change oil, you also need to change the oil filter. For the manual, go to http://www.triumphmotorcycles.com/

Hope this helps

I have an 05 flstsc,do i have to stand my bike up,or on kickstand to check oil in primary and trans?


bike needs to be upright to get a true reading of oil levels, have someone sit on it with their feet flat on the floor while you check the levels.

Just bought bike . How do I check oil level ? Light came on added one quart light went off but no dip stick so where should the level be ?


there is a sight glass on the right side of the engine, with the bike upright (off the kickstand) you will see the oil level. you might need an assistant for this. Be careful not to overfill the oil.

Do you have to hold the bike level when filling a gsxr with oil?


It's gotta be level bro. Otherwise the oil is all to one side. Level surface and level bike. Good luck bro.
