- then the sun came out and i thought fuck it go for a quick ride - but before i did i topped it up so as i could see some oil half way - later on about an hour or so later when the bike was warm the oil level was very high...

in anycase i will be doing an oil change this week - so i'm following this thread

mines a 450 exc - manual says 1.2 ltrs
i got rock oil semi synthetic 10w/30 (got a cheap job lot )

Drain the old oil ,clean filters with a magnet and a fine spark plug brush, re fit plugs , lean bike over and fill oil filter chamber 3/4 full of oil , fit new oil filter, seal and cover , level bike , fill with oil to 1/4 of sight glass, warm motor gently no high revving of a cold motor . Allow to settle and cool then top up to half the sight glass. The reason i fill the filter housing is to ensure a charge of oil is present AT the filter instead of waiting for the pumps to get it there , protects the motor better at cold. Just how i do my bike Very Happy
