Hi All, first time post, long time lurker. Just picked up a 2008 MP3 250 that had been sitting for a couple of years. New Battery, flushed brakes, new parking brake cable(not fun) and its back to it's glory.
I just performed an oil change for the first time and I very carefully measured out 1.2L(one bottle at 946mL and 237mL or 1/4 of another bottle for a total 1183mL) and I was way over the max line, about 200mL or roughly the distance from min to max, but passed max. Bike was reasonably level(really really slight inclne of the driveway so if anything, it would read less) on the center stand when checking, wiped dipstick, thread all the way in and all the way out. I used a syringe to remove enough oil to get it down to the max line.
Has anyone else noticed this sort of thing?
