Just giving my Monster its first home oil & filter change. The owners manual says it takes 3.3L, but it occurred to me as the sight-glass filled, and stayed filled, that the owners manual also says it has a wet clutch. Well, it has a dry clutch, and I suspect that will reduce the amount of oil it takes.

Does any one know how much oil to put in am '03 M1000ie dry clutch engine, with new oil filter? Looks like I need to get some plastic tubing and try to suck some out.

Thanks

oil levels in 2003 M1000ie

The capacity is 3.3L, but not everything comes out and the refill is usually less. Fill to line, start bike,so oil filter fills, then top off.
Thanks.

I started the bike and idled it for a minute or so, and the oil has settled back down around the high mark on the sight glass. I was a little concerned about starting the bike if ti had way too much oil in it. All appears well now.
