Just did my oil change. Took both plugs off as well as the filter, let it drain over night; next morning I leveled the bike, hit the starter button to turn the engine without starting it, let it drain for a couple more hours. Plugged everything back, replaced with new filter, put 2.5 qts of oil in turned it on a few seconds, put the rest of the container in (3.78 total), no oil on dipstick, went and got another qt, ended up putting the whole thing in; just barely on dipstick (yes it's screwed all the way in). Rode it a couple of miles, added another .25 qts and it's midway on the marks. That's about 5 qts total plus I could add another .25 no problem. Specs call for 4.10 w/filter; what is the total system capacity? I know I drained as much as I could get out, but an entire qt. Thanks for any info you give me.
i've heard that some people have some slippage when they switch to synthetic. i didn't have that problem and i know that lots of people don't have a problem. check it out some more and post up a new thread to keep it on track.Got a question, Just switched from amsoil to the Mobil1 exact type you pictured.
Now when i decel from third gear i hear a funny noise for half a second. Its sounds like its coming from my clutch or possibly my pully on the left side. Kind of a nub at this but doesn't the warrior have a wet clutch lubed from engine oil? I'm thinking this must be it since its the last thing i did besides replace my decompression solenoid. I just wanted to ask if anyone hears the same noise from after switching to mobil1.
I only hear it when i cut throttle to 0% but leave the clutch engaged in third gear and its only for about half a second tighten it sounds normal. ill test it out more tomorrow i didn't want to keep the how neighborhood awake.
Amazing tut by the way!
ya just did mine getting ready to put her up for winter and it took 5 litres to the full mark every time..
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.
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...What is your secret, do you have an external oil cooler that isn't shown in your Album? If you are checking your oil level according to the video for a dry sump motor then forgive me but I don't understand why you are installing 5 Liters (5.3 Quarts) for an oil change when that overfills the system when the motor is operating. 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.
