oil level check

Oil level check
- Start vehicle as described in the relevant section, let it run for approx. 3 minutes
so as to warm engine up.
- Stop the engine.
- Keeping the motorbike upright and on even ground, wait a few minutes for
the oil to reach the sump.
- Check the level as follows:
- Undo the cap (1) with the dipstick (2) and remove it from the engine.
- Clean the dipstick (2) with a cloth.
- Place the dipstick (2) in the hole (3) without screwing the cap on.
- Remove the dipstick (2) from the hole (3) and check that the level is
between the two MIN and MAX marks.
- To top up, pour oil into the hole (3); for the type of oil, see the section “Technical
data”.
