Rock the bike forward off of its center stand and hold it straight up and down.

Look at the oil level view port, located at the bottom of the clutch cover. The oil level should be between the two notches or completely full.

Be sure that you are not on an incline such as a drive way. The incline will give false oil level readings.

This is not your actual oil level, but a pre-check to make sure the engine will not run dry when you first start it. The oil level will drop slightly after the first run when oil fills the new oil filter.

Add oil if the oil level is below the bottom notch.

Place the bike back on its kickstand.
