chat_vmax Posted March 24, 2007 Share Posted March 24, 2007 I just did my first bit of service on the bike... 2004 r 1150 rt with 24k on the clock,,, i bought it used and the weather just broke so i wanted to change oil , trans fluid , and rear diff fluid,,, The oil was filthy,,, yike... did a oil change and filter,, well that's all fresh and new :-)) I put in 3.75 quarts with a filter and the view glass is full , I drove it about 10 miles after oil change to warm the gear box and diff for draining, I checked the view glass and no air showing,, just oil,, is that ok ... ? Also,, The gear fluid i drained came out like water and was bright red,,,, is that synthetic?? I was putting in standard 80 / 90 wt gear oil like manual called for,, is that ok now that the red stuff was in there...?? I assume some red fluid will remain even though I will let it drain all night..?? Any Advice appreciated :-)) Link to comment
