Ktm Engine Oil Quantity

Ok,

My Manual is saying 3l after oil and filter change

3l in and not registering on dipstick

i know from talking on uk forum that one menber had put 3.8l in after good oil drain and had coveres etc ff meaning all oil was removed.

So i had bike dripping oil for least 1 day and had both side covers off for few days so engine was well and truly dained

oil

Just make sure that you check the oil level after you run the bike. when the oil settles cold it will all drop to the lower tank so the sump has to pull it back up to the upper tank when running to get a proper reading.

Read the manual,everything it has to say about oil changes.

Yours is just the same as all other KTM's of that model.

I hate checking the oil in a dry sump motor.

The technique seems so inaccurate.

My suggestions for dry-sump motors:

After putting in the recommended quantity - go for longer than a 'leak-check' ride.

They seem to require more/longer operation, before the indication becomes correct.

(if you overfill, dont tell anyone )

Agreed. Too many variables.

Mine takes more than 3L from an oil change, I like mine to read on the half way mark on the stick. If you have put 3L in and ran it for a while and it don't show add some more until it does. Make sure your run it for a bit, then wait a bit to get the reading.

It's not rocket science, just have oil in it, and it will run.

Put in 3L warm up and go ride it for 15 minutes. Then come back and put it on the center stand and fill till it's at the appropriate level. Mine usually takes 3.6L when I do filters and all.
