Ok, so I picked up my 02 1600 * last febuary. I've put about 10-12,000 miles on it and it has been perfect, except for that time I tried to go pumpless.
I've only changed my oil about a 10 times.
Just kidding it's more like 20 times. I know I should change it more but that stuff is expensive.
So I bring my bike out in front of my house so I can pull the plugs out and drain the oil along the curb and into the storm drain. Plus I can use my neighbos grass to wipe the oil off my hands and it's a good spot to let my filter drain just in case I want to reuse it.
For some reason after I put my 4 Qts of 20/50 yamalube in and checked my dip stick. The oil just touched the bottom of my dip stick. That was with the stick screwed all the way in. Most of the time the oil is about 1/4 of the way up the stick. I know 4qts is all I should need but not seeing it on the xxxxxx part of the stick kinda bothers me. Any ideas.
