3.5 quarts with filter change should be real close, you could stop and check it @ about 3.25 quarts if you want, and add till it's full, if you put 3.5 quarts and go you'll be fine. 10w/40wt is fine, 20w/50 is fine in our part of the world (hot weather). Don't ask what kind or you'll be reading the rest of your life.

thanks, I've always used 10W 40, just didn't know if there'd be a difference on the smaller motor.

after you do it half up the site glass start the motor ( i always put it in gear for couple seconds to let the oil run around the gears and stuff.) then recheck cause you'll more than liekly have to add. oh yeah don't foget to fill up the oil filter so you don't have a dry start.

I thought it was 2.7L without changing the filter, and 3.1L with changing the filter?

Make sure you have the bike sitting straight up not on the side stand when you are checking the site glass.

i dont know about all bikes, but most suzuki's have the capacity for the oil stamped right next to the oil fill plug. kinda hard to see in this pic, but i think this one says its 2800ml. =2.8 liters. fyi, a liter isnt exactly the same as a quart, but its really really really close. in any case, the stamped amount will get you close, but always use the window to get just the right amount.

Oil change help

also, as far as i know, almost all of sportbikes hold anywhere from 2.6L to 3.2L with most being in the middle somewhere. either way, most of time you end up buying 3 liters and using the window.
