How many ounces does a 17' GRiSO SE take in the CARC drive? Can't deal with CI's, CC's, ML's or Liters... just need to to know ounces.
Thanks, Tom

Just try google.
It’s around 1/3 litre = around 12 oz

Thanks, I did a 23.2 cubic inches to ounces conversion = 12.8554113. I'll go with 12.5 oz. Smile

The quality is only a guide.
Stand the bike upright on level ground and fill the carc unit until the oil is at the bottom of the threaded fill hole.
Under filling is not ideal and over fill could result in oil escaping from the breather cap.
Factory manual recommends an 80/90 GL4. Gut instinct would usually point towards a GL5 grade for a bevel drive.
In the UK we are able to get 80/90 GL4/5. This obviously covers all possibilities.

I'd like to know why Mericuns are still stuck in the Imperial/ Stone Age. just give in, see sense and go metric.

Apparently it's "too hard", though if it's for export, it's supposed to be metric.

Probably worse in the UK - we a still stuck in the cave fearful of seeing the sunrise.
We drink beer in pints.
Travel on the road in mph, covering distance in miles.
Buy fuel in litres then convert to gallons (imperial not US) so we can work out our mpg.
We tried to introduce metric tyres and failed miserably.

I have worked in engineering all my life and I still get information in meters and inches- the same measurement like 5 meters, 3 inch & 6 mm instead of 5082.2mm

Thanks eeyore, I did the same with the transmission filler, to hell with quantity.

Because the Americans are the only Country in the World to put men on the Moon, that is why, and we are the only Country in the World that is
NOT on the Metric system! Dave

NASA dropped imperial units and went metric back in the 90’s.
Good luck convincing the rest of the world that imperial is the way to go.

My Dad worked for NASA Michoud, they built the 1st and second stage of the Apollo rockets at that facility, that is why I grew up in New Orleans of
course there was no way for you to know that before you threw what you did out there! I still have his micrometers and they are in INCHES!

I would say you really stepped in some Sh.. on this reply!

Great!
That was the 60's.

Wrong again!  Dad did not retire until the late 80's, here is a quote from the NASA site:

"English units are still employed on some missions, and a few projects use both. NASA uses both English and metric aboard the International Space Station.Jan 8, 2007"

There are NO missions that use ONLY the metric system.  Even our speed limit signs and speedos in cars use both methods to get the U.S. on board for metrics, but we would not do it!

Don't you have a Muzzie problem to resolve along with Brexit?  You should stick with that!  You are worried about the wrong thing!

AND YOUR POINT IS?

Pete, that is not heated, I am just righting a wrong! The facts are the facts but the Brits always seem to have their own version. I am on several forums and have seen this time after time. They have so many problems at home that they should be addressing but they don't, it is just easier to
be a keyboard warrior and bend the facts to fit how they feel. That person had no idea who I was when he was bending the facts and I will not tolerate that.

If there be buyers wanting rocks to chuck, I have many buckets of imperial rocks AND metric rocks - just wait till I get out of the road before you start hoiking said rocks. Pretty soon you will have a selection of both...

that said,I've got an Imperial adjustable wrench that my Dad gave me, but its useless on the Guzzi and in fact pretty much unusable here in Oz now, so if any Imperialist would like to purchase same...







oh, and I fill my bits up to the start of the thread bits.

You said it was "adjustable", WTF is wrong with you?? It will work anywhere! Is this the kind of people I am going to respond to here? Wankers! Dave

Who knew CARC fill was so controversial. Does remind me of the time dad and I were fishing off an old abandoned rail road bridge. Dad hooked something, reeled it up and it was an old rail road lantern, and the damn thing was still lit.

I have a full set of imperial wrenches. Why that ? In case I have one day a Harley-Davidson in my garage again. But it will unlikely happen.  Ooh La La
