OK, I know this is a lame question, so don't beat me up to bad!
I changed my oil yesterday, following the procedure layed out here on the forum. Oil level is right at the top line in the viewing window! Started engine and loosened the little bolt to make sure oil is pumping up to the top of the head, no problem, everything is good!
Now, with the engine running, I noticed that the oil level window basically showed no oil, as the one quart I put in was being pumped throught the engine. I don't have a manual, so I'm going to ask here.
Is oil level checked with engine off, or running?
You never know what you can do until you have to undo something you have done.
That's what I figured, but just wanted to make sure! I do need to invest in a service manual for the TW!
Don't feel bad.. I had someone tell me in disbelief that my bike was 1000cc. I said, "What? No.. what are you talking about?" and they pointed at the 1000cc embossed numbering by the oil fill cap
I downloaded the manuals Brian! That is awesome that these are available for free!
Who do I thank for this?
I like using Marvel Mystery Oil in my engines.
At 1000cc, that is one quart bottle of oil, then top off with about 1.8 oz of MMO.
