I haven't gone through this whole thread, so this already may be covered. I just changed the oil in my 'new' (to me) '02 Warrior. I added the oil as directed (I do have the manual), and after 5 qts, it still doesn't make it up to the dipstick. At all. I'm afraid to add too much more, but it looks like it could take another 1/2 qt. The quantity with filter was supposed to be 4.3. What am I missing?

Thanks for rehashing all of this guys. I had changed the oil and didn't understand why the quantity wasn't coming up. I was worried about taking it on the road without enough oil. The last thing I wanted to do was burn up the motor.

I had planned to ride first thing this morning, and freaked and posted before going through the whole thread.

Thanks again!

I keep a rag under my seat so I can pull off the road and go through the procedure, usually on my way home from my 60 mile commute, too bad there's not a cold line on the dipstick!

We should try and get these pictures re posted. Maybe the op can edit them and upload them or someone else has them and a moderator can edit them.
