even when I was into muscle cars I never used the stuff. The Yamaha oil doesn't seem that much to me considering what I have invested in my machine. Just my 2 cents!

The reason I ask is, if you haven't run the motor, the oil drains from the frame to the crankcase. Always check the oil level after the motor has been warmed up.

This brings to oil up into the frame. If you check it without running it first, your oil is sitting in the bottom of your engine. Your dip stick cannot reach that far!(Just some humor!)

I've started it with the dipstick just sitting in the hole unthreaded. Made a mess.

Is it normal for oil to come out of the filler pipe with the bike running? Wasn't concentrating on the job at hand and left it undone started it got covered by oil
