you realize you overfilled your transfer case by 30 ml (1 oz) ;)

btw ... nice garage
the yamaha book calls for 400ml but i put back exactly what came out 425 ml cause i measured it minus the little bit that was left stuck to the funnel it is very thick and sticky bang on....

the yamaha book says every 16k miles or 25k km so it sounds like you are due mine has 20k km on it now but i may do with each oil change from now on where it is so simple to do ..

Good idea but can't help to mention, that's one clean-arse garage.
