Approx. 950 cc's per quart. Alot of guys use the BillyWho products but a measured container will do the job. WR Dave

I bought a measuring cup from a local market that has both english (cups) and metric (cc) on it. Works great, easy to clean, and if my memory service corretly it was under $5.:thumbsup:

I use guesstimate by using the sight deal on the side of the oil bottle and verifing oil level by the dipstick

:lol: I think you misunderstood me

the sight deal on the side of the oil bottle


The 07s don't have a sight window either...

I guess I should get in the habit of properly measuring the oil. I put in a little over a quart (1.06 US qts. is capacity) and rode 75 miles on saturday and she ran like a top :thumbsup:
