Hey you all, just reallized my dream and got my Warrior.. niiiiceee!!!
First of all I got to tell that the Yamaha dealer here in my country does not bring any warriors, so I had to import it from the US myself. So, as you guess, I got to assemble it!!...even better!!!!

But as I didn't want to start it without oil, I opened the cap and.. no oil.. so I went to a dealer and bought a couple of litters to start... mistake!!!!... I put 2,5 on it, started it, checked.. there was oil right on the top of the filling tube. So what I did was to drain all the oil and pour in the right amount... Do I have to worry?

It didn't get too hot.. but I'm still worried when I ride it...

I know.. stupid thing to do, [xx(]

PD: best bike ever!!

Do not worry! You had 2.5 Liters in the engine when you started the bike, then you drained and added 4.1 When you started you had enough to protect the engine according to Yamaha, plus the engine had already been run at the factory and you had residual oil.

Check the oil on the dipstick, you are good to go.

you are a brave brave man, driving a warrior in santiago. i was just down there in may and was just amazed by the beautiful countriside, but i dont think i saw any big bikes like a warrior down there the entire time. at best i saw 650 star that had the suspension set really really high. lots of guys on two strokes and motocross bikes though.

s!

Welcome to he site Bro. It shows how bad you must have wanted a Warrior is you imported it yourself, you must be one of a kind in your country now. Just keep checking the oil before and after every ride until you are confident that it's at the right level, it'll be fine I'm sure.

If you check the oil BEFORE you ride then it will (should) read too low. You need to get the bike up to operating temperature before checking the oil level. Good luck with it.

The bikes are shipped dry - no oil. Shaq is correct about warming the bike. It's the only way to get an accurate reading on it. The bike takes five quarts total. Check your transfer case as well. I don't know if they're shipped dry or not. You'll want to put a cup of juice in there too if empty, for sure. Welcome to the forum.

Thanks a lot for the help!!!!, now I'm a lot more sure about riding it without damaging. Both the dealers in Miami and Santiago told me that the bike came with factory oil, so when I drained and saw that it had a little I was sure that the transfer case should've had a little too.

And yes!!!.. I was desperate to get one down here!!! LOL.. and now I'm even prouder knowing that I'm the only one with a RSW here... it is definetely the best ride that I've ever had. Hope after the guy in Yamaha saw mine will convince himself to start importing them /emoticons/emotion-5.gif

anyway thanks for the great site, and I hope to see you all here for a ride! Santiago is not so good for riding, but the country side has good roads and best spots. See ya

Being a new owner myself I would have never guessed how to theck the oil with out the Manual or this site. I was hoping you were overfilled with joy, but I understand how you could.... Just eyeball it in the drain pan and warm the bike up and adjust acordingly, no harm no foul, at least you dindt get out on the road where she maight have started puking it out and give you a heat attack[/emoticons/emotion-3.gif]

nititgve, Welcome and congratulations on getting your Warrior. You must be one very determined person. The rest of us just signed some papers and wrote a check and we were off. I applaud you. Just to let you know, you have just aquired about 1000 new best friends.
