Proper Oil Level on 2016 R1200gs
When my new bike got 600 miles on her, I checked the oil level on the center stand and on level ground, hot engine after 5 min of waiting. The break-in oil was almost up to the second circle. Crystal clear too.
So I went to the BMW dealer and have the 600 mile service performed....Everything was checked-off and got going on my way. After gearing up and taking a trip of 400 miles, I checked the oil level and the oil was all the way up in the sight glass.....went by dealer and they told me it was alright, that the engine would burn it off while riding.
I was not too sure about that.....Now I have turned 2000 miles today and the oil level is still above the top circle.....What should I do?
