Yes occasionally mine does take a little more sometimes, I will fill it with the four and then ride around a little and when I get back it will need some more...Originally posted by MuzzyMike
Anyone's bike taking over 4 quarts when refilling after an oil change?
Actually if you use a new filter then you need more oil so it will fill the filter, or you can just fill the filter before you put it on...Originally posted by anitmatter
It shouldn't take any more than that, and probably just a little less with a new filter.
do a search for oil changes or "burping" the oil filter. i hasnt happened to me, but i read that when u change your oil filter, and then start the bike up, it sounds really loud, and some guys say it sounds like a diesel its that bad. what happens is there is an air bubble in the filter or something and u have to "burp" the filter by unscrewing it a little bit and then tightening it back up.Originally posted by irokdastar383
i have a question. i got my bike a in may its a 2004 zx6r with 900 miles on it. i did an oil change and changed the filter. but i noticed something weired .the bikes engine sounds much more louder than it did before i changed the oil.(i have stock exhaust)is there something i am doing wrong or is it just how it is. because i pull up next to my friends gsxr1000 with a pipe and my bike is louder.
You may be correct about the 03/04, but look before posting about some one elses bike... He owns a 2000, not an 03/04...Originally posted by sneakyws6
It says right on the side of the motor case that with a filter change it should only take 3.7 quarts on the 03/04 bikes, but I am sure Kawasaki was wrong and they really need 4.5 quarts.
