Thanks for consolidating Scooterwest GTÍ hub oil change video and written instructions. Having all the right tools sure makes it easy.

Following the instructions, I drained my hub oil just today. ~200 cc came out! The video says fill with 150 cc. The wiki says fill with 125 cc.... I guess I'll check the dipstick once it settles.

The dipstick is a pretty unreliable measure. It's easy to overfill the gear oil, which can lead to all sorts of issues from poor performance to oil leaking on the rear tire. I'd check the owner's manual to see what the capacity is but in general, I replace exactly as much as I drain, which has never been 100%.
