Question about 2006 kawasaki KX 450 F

2 Answers

Kawasaki 2006 KX450F Oil capacity I'm doing my first oil change on this machine after picking it up secondhand. Engine says .98litre with filter out, Manual says the same, however manual also says set oil level by site glass and thats not happenning with .98 of a litre. Also some more conflicting info here: 2009 bikes have less oil than 2006 bikes with 1.3litres. Motorcross dealer says they are the same engine as Suzuki so put in 1.4litres. Mine drained out 1.2litres and was above sight glass level. Any definitive answers please?

Fill to the site glass. Anywhere from middle of the glass to just below the top of the glass. The engineers put the glass there for a reason. Typographic errors do come to light at times.

Top rating on the answer! Thanks. :)
