Hi, i was wondering the manual say's to check it after you let it run for 3 min and then let it sit for 3 min, if I do this the oil is right at teh full line, if I let the bike sit for awhile ( days) I check it and it has the hole sight glass filled up. I was wondering if I shopuld let it sit for afew days and then drain it down intill it is at the full line .Thanks alot

It's not going to really matter either way..... if you go by the book and it is full at that point when you test it, you should be okay. If you drain it after it sits it will still be in between the "okay" marks so you should still be okay. What happens is all the oil that was coating the internals of the engine run down and make it look more full than it needs to be.... but not by that much. If you were to drain it down after sitting till it is at the line you would probably get a dixie cup out = no bid deal.
