Question 1190 0il Level Checking

Hi Guys,


Can someone help me out please. I'm currently 2500kms from home and I forgot to bring the owners manual along with me. Doh indeed!!!
Can anyone tell me if there's an online resource for these, or alternatively, post up the exact process for checking the 1190's oil level and required fill levels.

Many Thanks,

Steve

When warm (is better), shut off engine.

Put on central standard.

Look in oilglas (left front). Max = +/-0.7cm from top. Lowest = +/-1cm from bottem.

Simple as that.

Any minimum time to wait from shut off to using sight glass?

Wait a few mins before you check. The manual says 3.8 ltrs is full but last week when i changed mine it took all of 4 ltrs to get it full. If you check it when the bike is cold just look in the site glass with it on the center stand.

Thanks Doug.
So anywhere in the upper regions is ok? Just checked after a few thousand kms and the oil seems to be sitting very low. Wasn't sure if this bike ran a dry sump type arrangement that needed a specific procedure to fill.
and I'm flying home next week so I might bring enough oil and a filter for a full change back up with me. Motorex isn't so easy to get in the middle of Africa!!!
Thanks guys!
