Curious to know your guys thoughts on an oil overfill on these bikes. Maybe a little above the full line on the dipstick. 2015 Honda Rincon
Thanks Corn Dog
I will raise the front end next oil change.
Corndog, would those tweaks, and adjustments apply to all years of this model, or is that for the older bikes? One last question, have you run into any major repairs in those 13,000 miles? Just wondering what I'm going to be looking at in the years to come.
CD, for your oil level... is it at the round part when cool..?Mine typically ends up about where the oil level is at the part of dipstick that just starts to get round. Maybe 1/8 to 1/4 inch over full. It will not hurt anything, the Rincon has a dry sump in the engine.
Some people overfill slightly saying it shifts better. Personally, I just do it for convenience. In 13,000 miles it has done no harm.
A tip I will offer and I do not see discussed much lately, is to elevate the front wheels on car ramps or something, so they are about 12 inches above the rear wheels. When you do an oil drain, you will get 4 quarts out instead of just 3. I think somehow this causes the torque converter to drain. Put the bike back on level ground when filling.
I check the oil level when cold.CD, for your oil level... is it at the round part when cool..?
Or is it at the round part after warm up.??
And when front is lifted / elevated for oil change,
When re filling,
do you automatically put 4 qts in,?
Or put 3 in, check it, and then bring it up to the round part on dip stick..?
Corn Dog, do you recall the mileage you had on your bike when you did the first cam chain tensioner? Mine is around 1,600 miles, and I'm getting a little cautious of this job.
While a little over fill probably wo
My 06 rinny had the same miles on it problems to look for is everything else to break but the motor straight forward replyCorndog, would those tweaks, and adjustments apply to all years of this model, or is that for the older bikes?
