Exclamation Removing excess engine oil from crankcase

Hey guys,

I did my 9000 mi oil change and accidentally poured a little too much oil in the reservoir. Basically with the bike cold and on a rear stand the viewing glass shows about 90-95%. After warming the bike up to operating temp, putting it on the rear stand and letting the oil drain back into the reservoir, the glass is completely full (no line visible). I take it that's too much.

Is there any other way to cleanly extract 0.2-0.4 L from the oil reservoir than opening the drain screw again? Is there a way to siphon the excess oil out from the top using a pump or something?

Thanks,


- H

yes...use a pump like you said, or get a big syringe and some tube. Did you tip the bike a little to see if you were just barely over the line?

Although for the record I would call that good if its showing below the line cold, but that's just me.

Simplest way to do this would be to take off the oil filter and dump the oil in the filter. Do this until you achieve required level you want.

that is in no way simpler than sucking some oil out with a syringe.


---The oil level's fine anyway BTW

You said you are putting the bike on a rear stand. The owner's manual is confusing on this point because on page 105 Checking Engine Oil Level it says to hold the motorcycle upright and then on page 106 Topping Up Engine Oil it says to put it on a stand. I would think that putting it on a stand would give a false reading of the oil level.
