    Just read through this entire thread.
    Still have question(s) on oil changes.
    Saw one response that said the cooler added 170 cc of additional oil capacity and yet another response said no change in capacity.
    At least that's the way I read it.
    I need to change oil (and filter) on my '13 650L.
    How much oil should I be pouring into the old girl?

    Hi Fite,
    When you fill the bike with oil right after the cooler is installed, it will take a little more oil.
    Oil changes after that will be like normal and not require additional oil.

    Make sure the bike is vertical when checking oil.
    After draining:
    1. Fill the oil to the upper level.
    2. Start the bike and let it idle for 5 minutes.
    3 Level bike and wait 3 to 5 minutes.
    4. Recheck the oil level and add oil until it reaches the upper level.

    Note: Do not screw in the dipstick when checking the oil level.

    Make sure the bike is vertical when checking oil. A 2x4 placed under the side stand brings the bike close to vertical.

    Thanks.
    Installed your cooler several years ago. Lack of riding time has left it unused for too long.
    Time to change that thinking.
