Thanks Mate.....Appreciate the quick response

Sorry guys....another question....

If we are to fill the frame with 0.6ltrs & the crankcase with 1.3ltrs, why is the manual specifying 2.1ltrs?
Are they taking in account the extra 0.2 ltrs in the filter and lines?
Sorry to be pedantic however, I like to be certain of things.
Cheers.

The Factory lists the oil capacity from the motor never being filled. No matter how long you let it drain you will not get all the oil out.

So.....put 1.3L in a bucket......pour as much as you can out of the 1.3L bucket into the spin on filter. Pour the rest into the engine.Add .6L to the frame. Start, burp, shut off, tighten frame filler plug, recheck.

That should put the oil level a little above centre in the oil sight glass.

Hope that helps!

Thanks once again Droptarotter.
I suspected this to be the case.
Just looking for consensus I guess.
Cheers

Because the guide was written for Creeper's earlier-year bike with different values.You need to go through his guide cross-referencing your manual and adjust oil volumes and torque values to suit. This applies to all Creeper guides, indeed to any guide, any where!

I have annotated my paper copy in my garage "run book" and have also added the fastener sizes so I only have one point of reference: I find the torque value and the socket to grab from the one consolidated source. Makes life easier!

'02 640a, dip stick is on the clutch case fill plug.
What does your owners manual say?

Bill, he've got an 05adv. Since 2003 HF LC4 engines have a lurking window in the clutch cover.

No dipstick?

OK.

Stupid idea.

But use the window.

Hi guys
I have a question.
I have changed(for the first time alone) oils in my LC4 620 '97 but I forgot to drain the frame plug.
I filled in 2lt of oil(As I was told in the KTM dealer)but now the oil level is above max.
What should I do?Leave it until the engine spit the oil in airbox,remove some oil or do the procedure again from start?

I would drain out the oil and refill with the proper amount, I know on the newer models the engine gets 1.3 L while the frame takes 0.6 L, yours is probably the same...

You could also just remove the dipstick and lay the bike on its side to drain out just enough oil to bring it to the correct level...In the future remember that if you don't drain the frame you still will have 30% dirty oil running through your engine...

Old models are 1.3 + 0.6, newer ones are 1.5 + 0.6. /pedant. ;)

Get a big syringe extended with a bit of plastic tubing and suck the excess out through the oil filler.

Have you run the engine yet?

Cheers,
Colin

+1 on getting it out of the system.
Otherwise just wait for it to get burned
As Colin said, use a syringe with an extension to suck the oil out of the engine. Easier and cleaner.

Colin....I just run the engine around the block for a couple of minutes.
I was thinking to remove the extra oil by the frame plug,but your way is more easier and cleaner as 640Armageddon said.
