Shocked  Did the full service the other night and discovered something,  After adding my normal 3 litres of chosen engine fat, I discover it's nowhere near the low mark on the stick. It appears the Rosso's dipstick is quite a bit shorter than my 09 model.  I'm a bit slow but I worked out that it's fine on the side stand. This may have been covered here before so apologies if I'm going over old news. Can someone confirm that the 2015 models are checked on the side stand. I bought this bike with no manuals so can't check the books.

just changed mine this morning too Waterbottle, did it upright  so I just checked my book

the main points are ,

1. shut off the engine.
2.keep the vehicle upright with both wheels on the ground.
3. clean dipstick and replace without screwing in
4. pull it out again
5. oil level is correct when close to max mark .

that's what my book says,

I had to deal with the last numb nuts not lubing the rubber gasket  grrrr .

I'm a big fan of the Stelvio dipstick, and thanks to Pete Roper, I have a world traveled one in my GRiSO.

One thing I wonder about is the later bikes with the Cali 14 sump still specify the same amount of oil as the earlier ones with the deeper sump and spacer arrangement. Looking at the sticks you can see that the later bikes will have the oil closer to the crank than the earlier ones and my guess is that this will increase problem of oil expulsion.

Once I get back to Oz and clear the backlog of work I'm hoping to get stuck in to the 1400 engine. One thing Mark and I did a while back was purchase all the bits needed to swap our engines over to the later sump system and I'll be doing this with the 1400 motor but I'm also thinking that designing and building some sort of 'Sloppage Sheet' such as I did for the V11 'Broad Sump' engines might be a good idea to combat oiling/expulsion problems.

I've noticed that my Norge (8V) will spit oil into the airbox if the oil is above 1/2 full mark on the dipstick. The GRiSO (4V) seems to be fine. Not wanting to have to play around with trying to balance the bike and try to measure the oil, I made a mark on the dipsticks so I can check on the side stand. Mr. coordination I am not...........

I think my '12 is the size of the top one. Does that mean I need medication? Sad

Will look into the stelvio stick
