New Guy with a Question
Hey folks--new KLR owner here. I just picked up a 2009 with only 1300 miles! Obviously, the bike hasn't been ridden too much and is something I've wanted for awhile. Cant' wait to give it a try.
But..here's my questionS. I just changed the oil and filter. 2 Questions:
1. According to the manual, it should 2.6 quarts at the change (with a filter change). I put in 2 quarts and it's over the TOP line on the sight glass. So, should I go by the sight glass or still put in 2.6 qts?
2. When I changed the filter, I noticed that the piston assembly inside the filter ( the little tube thing) was missing! I'm guessing it got thrown out when the previous owner changed the filter. Anyways, the bike has been run without it. Is that safe? i did order a new one from my dealer, but in the mean time-I can run the bike?
Thanks for your comments--looking forward to doing lots more to the bike!
