Oil change / oil level question
When I picked up my RC it had a fresh oil change, so I haven't performed one yet to know the answer to my question...
When I started the bike up yesterday and let it idle, I thought I smelled a faint odor of burning oil. (this was the first time I've smelled anything other than warm engine and or exhaust) I see no drips on the floor nor do I ever see any smoke on start up or a rev of the engine. This morning I stood the bike straight (not on a stand) and the oil came midway up the sight glass, between the two lines. When it is on the kickstand, there is no oil in the sight glass. When I got to work, I again checked the oil with the bike running and it was almost to the same point in the sight glass. I want to make sure that I either should be looking for a leak, burning oil, or not to worry at all.
The manual calls for like 4.1 quarts with filter change. What does the oil level look like if you only put one gallon in it?
