Oil capacity:
Engine oil
Periodic oil change 0.95 L (0.84 Imp qt, 1.00 US qt)
With oil filter replacement 1.0 L (0.88 Imp qt, 1.06 US qt)
Total amount 1.2 L (1.06 Imp qt, 1.27 US qt)

ENGINE OIL LEVEL INSPECTION
1. Stand the machine on a level surface.
NOTE:
• When checking the oil level make sure that
the machine is upright.
• Place the machine on a suitable stand.
WARNING
Never remove the oil tank cap just after
high speed operation. The heated oil could
spurt out. causing danger. Wait until the oil
cools down to approximately 70 °C (158 °F).
2. Idle the engine more than 3 minutes while
keeping the machine upright. Then stop the
engine and inspect the oil level.

bought the bike from a trader which has been establisted for several years, he tells me i going to get manual, stand and maybe some otherbits like jets but he is now closed until the new year. i used a trader as i saved 600 sterling/pounds on list price. i suppose you get what you pay for.

I have always screwed it back in when checking. Is there somewhere in the manual thats stats that? I have looked before but never found any thing about it.
