Ok I got a simple but retarted question. I changed my oil and it says it takes like 1.9 quarts. I change my filter and add one quart and it completly fills the sight glass. Is the manual wrong or is the sight glass just for looks. I assume 1 quart is not enough....but I know too much oils is a bad thing too.......what's up wit it!

Might catch some flames for saying retarded and spelling it wrong but, I also wondered about the manual for oil capacity. Not sure the the exact numbers. I'll look when I get home. I only have a quart in mine since the manual was too damn confusing

I just thought it about it in my head and now I get it! Weird, with the manual in front of me I couldn't make sense of it. Takes 1.06 without the oil filter and 1.27 with the filter change. I changed my filter and still only put 1in it cause it filled my viewer up.

On page 2-1 it says:

Oil capacity:
Engine oil:

Periodic oil change: 0.95L/1 US Quart

With oil filter replacement: 1L/1.06 US quart

Total amount: 1.2L/1.27 US quart

This is repeated on 3-10. I assume the confusing part is the "total amount". That is the oil you will need to fill the system after a complete engine rebuild. It indicates that there is 200cc of oil that will not drain during an oil change.

I still want to know where anyone sees 1.9 quarts.

The sight glass should be close to half way 3 minutes after the motor is turned off.can not tell you the page number but it tells the exact procedure.
