Re: Oil Sight Glass
When my 2000 is on the center stand, I can see the oil at the top of the sight glass (with the engine off). Try this. While on the center stand and running, shut off the engine (while watching the oil level), you should see the oil gradually fill the sight glass. If it is completely covered, some say that it is overfilled. I assume that as long as the sight glass is not covered while the bike is on the side stand, everything should be ok.
On another note, when I change my oil and filter, I only put in exactly 3-1/2 quarts of oil, this way I save the other 1/2 quart for the next oil change. This has always worked for me.
