Oil check procedure..

Post by mizike77 »

Silly question...I know! What is the proper oil check procedure for a Darmah? Centerstand or not? Engine warm or not? Srew in the dip stick or just dip? Thanks!

there has yet to be a motorcycle line made that is as satisfying to ride, hear and look at as the ducati bevels

bike warm but let her sit awhile for oil to drain down into the sump, bike on center stand, dip stick thing sitting down where it goes but not threaded in. Remove and note where the oil level is betwen the 2 lines. I like to keep it in the middle to upper middle.
