Oil change quantity for 3AJ Tenere?
Can anyone tell me how much oil I should be putting in my 3AJ Tenere after an oil & filter change?
My notes tell me that my previous 3AJ took 3.0 litres and I don't remember ever having a problem with over filling it an the many times I changed the oil. I have now replaced that bike with a later 3AJ, one with silver engine & longer oil cooler and 2.8 liters appears to over fill it. I know that I have to pour some of the oil in once the engine has started, and that I need to ride for about 10 miles before checking the level.
With 2.8 L in it, after 10 miles the oil is full to the bottom of the oil tank filler neck and I suspect oil is flowing through the oil tank breather hose into the air box, leaking out from the hoses to he carbs and making a right mess.
Someone kindly posted a owners hand book on this site some time ago, and it stated 2.0L, but I am sure that that cannot be right. My wife's XT600E (plus aftermarket oil cooler) takes 2.8L.
Any other 3AJ owners know for sure?
