2015 Dragster Oil Change

What's up everyone. I have a pretty noob question.. couldn't seem to find any information on the amount of oil to put into my dragster. The owners manual calls for 2kg which equates to around 2 quarts (per google). Is that correct? That seems pretty low to me.

Here is a conversion chart with more information. Water is 1 kg per liter. Oil is different and different oils are different.

Kilograms to Liter (kg to l) Converter

Based on this calculator with "lubricating oil" 2 kg = 2.22 liters... but what is the density of the oil specified??

My experience has been you buy 3 liters of oil, start with a bit more than 2 and then add until the oil level is at the full mark (after running the engine for a minute or 2 and then allowing to sit and oil drain back for a minute or 2).

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

Thanks for the reply man. It calls for 5W40. That's what I'll shoot for. It's a huge help.

Here is another calculator. Density means more than SAE viscosity (5w40)

https://www.aqua-calc.com/calculate/volume-to-weight

This calculator shows 1 liter of 5w40 motor oil = 0.85 kg

5W40 is correct.

I may have grabbed the wrong manual or mine is just missing that page. Thank you for the correction.

If you put in the amount of oil stated in the manual you will have to drain the oil cooler (my mechanic said it would not drain itself).

And yes, oil volume is controlled with bike on the on the rear jack with cold engine and the dip stick turned in.

I motori sono come le donne, bisogna saperli toccare nelle parti piu' sensibili.......

Yes, the oil cooler should be considered.
If you check the oil level on the rear stand it will be in error.
Maintenance is carried out on the rear stand.

Thanks for that. I grabbed a pitbull rear stand the other week so that helps.

Just don't verify correct level using the pitbull stand. Both wheels on the ground....or lift the front an equal amount.
