Oil changing problem, please assist
I have a 09 Kawasaki Ninja 650r and I have changed the oil many times before. The manual calls for 2.5 quarts when the engine in completed dry. After adding 2.5 quarts, it has way to much oil. The eye glass is completely full. I did everything the same I do every other time and this is the first time I have had an issue. I will list the steps I took, please let me know what I did wrong.
1. Remove plug, gently rock bike back an forth to make sure as much oil as possible is drained.
2. Reinsert plug
3. Remove filter, gently rock bike back and forth to make sure as much oil as possible is drained.
4. Put on new filter
5. Checked eye glass - could not see any oil in eye glass
6. Fill with 2.5 quarts of new oil
I have done this exact process every-time. I have double checked the manual and am positive it called for 2.5 quarts. Does the engine need to run for a minute to get things circulated and fill the filter? What could I have done wrong?
