Tip for beginners
The 4 litre oil bottle is way too much oil for an engine to handle.
If you have a full 4 litre oil plastic bottle square shape . hold the bottle on its side to pour the oil out slowly and smoothly.
The manual does not call for a specific volume of oil. Make sure to check the level using the dip stick and make sure the oil level is approximately half way up the dip stick. If oil is needed, SAE10W40 is recommended.
There is a dip stick screwed into a tube on the side of the crank case or a screw plug directly into the crank near the bottom (normally coloured red) If it is a screw plug then unscrew and correct oil level is near top of thread Replace plug when finished. If it is a dip stick remove the dip stick--- wipe clean ---and replace screwing it all the way I. Remove again and check oil position on dip stick Should be on top mark or top hole if there are holes.
Center stand your motorcycle. If you have an Interceptor have a friend hold the bike upright. Unscrew the dipstick on the back of the right engine cover. Part #4.
Wipe off the dip stick and place it back into the opening but do not screw it in. Pull the dip stick out and make sure the oil level is between the high and low mark. If the level is low add only JASO MA certified motorcycle oil designed to work in engines with transmission gears and wet clutches.
Most any kind of 4-cycle motor oil like 10W-30 will work in these motors. After draining the old oil replace the drain plug. There are two types of motor oil fill holes: 1. If you have a motor with the oil fill/check hole on the bottom of the motor and a small screw-in plug either with or without a small dip stick on it; with the motor level, fill the crank case with oil until it is up to the threads on the oil fill/check hole. 2. If you have a motor with a long dip stick that goes into a filler tube at the top of the motor, again with the motor level, put in about half a quart of oil and use the dip stick to check the oil level. If not full, add quarter quart amounts and check again until the oil is at the full mark on the dip stick. Do not overfill the crank case with oil. Most motors will take about one quart of oil but it varries so watch to see the oil level come up to the proper level.
the dip stick is located in engine compartment if you stand in front of car with hood open the dip stick is to your left on side of trany, if this car is stick shift and not automatic then theres no dip stick its checked from side of trany by removing a plug and fill until oil runs out a little a lift would be the way to check it, the car must be level
NOTE; some models have a tube with dip stick and some a cap that unscrews on top of trany and when checking fluid you dont screw in just stick in hole to check level when done then screw back in and tighten,heres a diagram to help you find it.
