Engine oil between marks

Postby EduGold » Thu May 10, 2012 2:50 am



Someone knows how much motor oil fits in the engine between upper and lower marks in the dipstick of an 2008 GL1800?
Greetings.

I have an '08. What I would do is to add about 4 oz. and wait about 5 min. for it to settle and see how much of a difference that makes on the dip stick. I am thinking about half a quart is your answer but I am afraid to say because I don't want you to overfill, which is just as bad as being a little low.

Thanks Red.
I'm having the motorbike for six months and I don't manage to check oil level properly yet.
I encounter differents readings if I check level (motorbike on the center stand) after 5 min. running from cold or after an 1 hour ride.
I stop engine and wait 3 min. before check level.
