changed the oil on the GRiSO, but not the filter (I plan to do that after my next long trip in about a week's time) Oil was overdue and here on my shelf and my bunch of filters are sitting in my other workshop about 800 miles away...
drained the whole thing except the filter and started to add oil. Not wanting to overfill, after 2.75 litres I checked the (horribly designed) dipstick. I was already well over the top mark, bike upright, dipstick just resting on the threads
I'd also marked where the previous oil had settled to, which was quite a bit lower than where 2.75l got me to.
All seems quite surprising, does the filter really hold that much? It's only a wee thing....
I guess if it's overfilled it'll find its level fairly quickly, we're going for a real long motorway blast in a couple of days time
I'm not losing sleep over this, but the thoughts of those that know these motors a million times better than me would be welcome
