is it so hard to read the manual
maybe he does not have one, i don't.

i just did a oil change on mine, and put 2.2 litres in as mentioned, but it does not reach that second mark on the dipstick, Is this normal? it does not seem right to me.

Are you holding the bike upright when you check it?

shit i feel really silly right now, i just had it on the kick stand, it looked level enough, didn't think it would make much of a difference. I got my little sister to sit on it and hold it upright while i checked it, and it went way past the second mark aswell.

Gotta keep the bike level when you check oil.
It's cool, I did that once too and ended up with like 4L of oil in the bike. I was smart enough to go "That can't possibly be right" and ring the bike shop though, so I wasn't completely retarded. /defendself
