ok, i changed the oil and filter....and put in 2 quarts like the book says.......and it is not full....well i measured the oil that came out of it and it was 2 1/2 quarts.
How much do you guys put in it when changing the oil?.
Yep separately. I haven't changed my o-ring yet, it looks brand new and it is not damaged at all. I clean it off every time I change the oil so no dirt gets on there. My dealer said don't bother changing it unless its damaged.
There are two O-rings right? The small one in the filter and a large one that looks like it seals the cover? Which one was the dealer talking about. I can't imagine the large one needs to be changed every time!
when i pulled out the original filter that came in the bike it didnt have an o-ring on it...unless it fell of or stuck in the engine and i didnt know it. i guess ill have to go to the bike shop and confirm whether im missing the o-ring or not.
went home and checked my old filter for 0-rings...not even a place on the thing to hold one. then i looked in the manual where it shows the picture of the filter with arrows pointing to them. one of the arrows is pointing to large 0-ring that goes on the cover, and the other arrow is pointing to the spring on the cover. made me feel better, i thought i had been running the thing for the last twenty hours missing an oring.
