Hey everyone. I just got an Outlaw 525 IRS last weekend. I have put about 3 hours on it and tonight I decided it was time for the first oil change. Here's where I'm confused. The manual says to add 1.27 quarts of oil after draining the old oil. BUT the capacities section of the manual says the engine holds 1.9 quarts. I added about 1.3 quarts and the oil level is about 1/4 inch above the bottom of the sight glass. I ran the engine for a few minutes and didn't notice the level raise by that much. The bike was new when I bought it and the oil level has always been to the top of the glass (hot or cold). I have read that they come a little too full from the factory.
I also added oil to the new filters before putting them in so I probably have almost 1.5 quarts in there now. Anyone know why the level is still so low? Is this normal? Thanks for the any help you can give me. I love this quad and just want to make sure everything is ok.
