yet another oil question;

The service manual says total amount = 2,43 US qt
but if you change oil and oil filter you only need to put 1,96 US qt in it.

I was just wondering where the missing oil is :p If you drain it all and replace the filter i thought everything was gone ? but there seems to be some oil left somewhere. I was just wondering where it's hiding ;)

If found that to be sorta odd too. It also doesn't mention anything about adding oil to the block prior to starting it. Yamaha says to add the oil to the reservoir only, yet my dealer claims they put 1/2 quart into the block then put the rest in the reservoir. :help: Hopefully some of the more experienced Rappy riders will have some insight.

drain the oil
change oil filter
pour 1/2 US qt in the engine
pour 1 US qt in the oiltank
remove sparkplug-cap
loosen the bolt on top of the oil filter cover (just loosen it a bit, don't remove it completely)

now press and hold start button and wait for the oil to come out of the bolt you just loosened.
(this is for letting the air out)
now if the oil is coming out, tighten the bolt aigain.
now pour remainder 1/2 US qt in the oil tank and install sparkplug-cap and you're ready to go.

Sorry for my bad Englisch ;)
