It's way above the sight glass on the side of the engine.

Did you fill/burp the frame properly?

Talking Oil capacity.

Thanks everyone for the replies.

And thanks for the info on that sharp looking 2000 640.

I did everything like a good little boy per Creeper's oil change thread in the index.

This morning I removed 200 ml and she is perfect on the site glass.

Next time around I will just put in 1.7 liters and go from there.

I burped the frame, removed the allen screw, replaced the filters all is good. Must have done it right because I put 250 miles on her today. No problems whatsoever.

Also if anybody has a 41L Touratech Zega lid sitting around, I lost mine today on the hwy somewhere????

Oh yes... that was my turn around point... the road ahead was worse
The D606's are going on this week for regular dirt trails. I was only up there to see how far the road was open... and because I could... and it wanted to go there

Vancouver has had some record cold April and May days this year... last year they were trucking in this white stuff for the winter Olympics as that was one of the mildest winters on record

I have no idea if the picture I uploaded is attached to this message. I have a question about some peculiar behavior of the electric ignition on my LC4.
