Doesn't matter, just normal riding so the oil fully circulates several times and gets warm enough. Then its important to NOT rev it before shutting off the motor, which by now you know why that is important from the video.

I didn't rev it before/during a 30 second idle. I followed the directions as posted. I not sure why it took a day to get the oil level to come up. I initially
added the 4.3 ish but like I said in the beginning of my post the oil barely came up to the bottom of the dip stick, And that worried me so I kept on adding oil until I got a full reading. Next oil change I'm gonna just add the 4.3 and call it good.

This was obviously my first oil change with this bike, a little trial and error for my own piece mind.

Again the write up was spot on. Thx for all the comments and suggestions.

The service manual shows the total system contains 5 Liters but that's if you tear the motor down and rebuild it. Doing an oil change its hard to get every drop out of the motor even running it for a few seconds. Most people get a 'full' reading at about the 4.1-Liters (4.3 Quarts). I use a longer oil filter but that only gets a bit more oil.
did oil change by the book and 4.5 litres just shows quarter way up dip stick 5 litres brings it up to full mark but i did notice a little blowed in my breather box so next year i will have to try 4.75 litres and get her half way up the stick . and no extra oil cooler all stock motor...

If you mean oil drain plugs. No I don't think so. One may have been changed. If you mean spark plugs no.

Default 1st Time Oil Change

Hey Everyone! I just changed my own oil for the first time today and it couldn't have been easier. Thanks for the great instructions with pics... I know I would have messed something up without this tutorial. Best!
