Hi everyone

I have been reading all the posts about people having problem about checking the oil level, I have the same problem. when I bought my bike I am almost sure I had no problem checking it.
Then after my first service.. was when I start having my oil checking problem (it is not supposed to be difficult if you follow the book)

Anyway After me chucking in 1.5L of oil yes 1.5L bells start rigging, I phoned the dealer and they told me I probably overfilled it, So I took my bike back And they said they would sort it out, anyway As they where busy checking it out I got bored and went to the workshop to ask What is going on,
so they told me they are going to drain all the oil as they have no clue how much oil I put in. I then ask to keep the oil to measure it to see how much was in.
After 15min I went back to ask how much oil they took out, he went back to check and replied OOO sorry they already chucked it, but I did overfill it! Anyway me taking there word they charged me 50 for a crappy oil change and now I am back struggling to check my oil, And I am to scared to put in more oil, As they say I could damage my seal by putting to much oil in.

If anyone has any advise, I would appreciate it
