Default Oil capacity

Could someone shed some light on the oil volume required for an oil change with and without the oil filter?

Thanks in advance.

Get 4 liters of oil. You will need at least 3 for an oil change, and 3.5 for change with filter....regardless, put in 3 liters. start and run the engine for a minute or so, check the level in the sight glass and add more as needed.

Not after guess work thanks. My last bike took 2.7 litres by the way,so 3 litres could well be over full.

well you could look in your owner's manual for the specs

doesn't the F3 have a sight glass like the earlier bikes?

never played with a F3......sat on the USA F3 test bike at Moto Forza, didn't think to check the oil level method, sorry

the relevance of "My last bike took 2.7 litres by the way, so 3 litres could well be over full." escapes me

PS;
giving Ed shit probably isn't the wisest thing to do.....given his job and experience

Shop manual shows crankcase capacity as 2.5l, oil cooler & hoses 0.5l, and 0.2l residual but does not mention oil filter. For oil & filter change I would put in 2.5l then proceed as per manual to remove #1 fuse so engine does not start, crank over for 4-5 seconds a couple of times and check dipstick level, top up/remove as necessary. Hope this helps.

Ahh, another Greg, too many of you, you just beat me to it mate.
Thanks for your help, hope you had a good day yesterday, you were quite a topic when I got to Collie on Sunday .

Here is a bit more detail on that subject, I do believe that the factory could have included things like wheel removal and oil changes on the Owners manual.

First up, sorry to esqz'me for what has been interpreted as my rudeness. I wrote a short message on my phone out of pure laziness, I was looking for more information (and probably should have said so specifically), not to create offense.

Because the bike's owners manuals are so useless, I wanted to get an accurate idea of the oil capacity before I started pouring stuff in. I don't trust dip sticks and prefer to go with measured quantities (and their is no sight window on these ones not that I feel they're any better than dipsticks).

This is also the first bike I've had with an oil cooler and an internal oil filter, so I really didn't want to be pouring an unknown amount of oil in just in case there was something important that needed to be done to burp the system.

Thanks Gregostini - that info is worth its weight in gold.
