I just did the 600 mile service myself. No problems til I put the oil back in. According to the manual, 4.4 qts should be the proper amount. Well, I put 5 full qts of Mobil 1 v-twin oil in and it still is not showing up on the dipstick. I did do it according to the manual (2.5 qts in, start motor and rev 3-5 times, then put the remainder in). I think I can see oil on the very tip of the dipstick. Is this normal? I understand that each motor might take a little bit more or less than the next, but it seems to me that my motor is off by about 1 whole quart. There are no leaks. Please advise.

5~qts w/oil filter is the limit. Take the bike around the block, warm it up and recheck the level with the dip stick unscrewed and the bike level. It should indicate at or near the high mark [/emoticons/emotion-5.gif]
