BucksTherapy Posted April 5, 2007 Share Posted April 5, 2007 On the 1150s I recall that you had to make sure your bike was at operating temp before shutting it off or alternatively wait an extended period of time before checking the oil level in the sight window. I recall the reason was oil could be trapped in the oil cooler. I assumed there must be a temp controlled valve that allowed oil to flow to the cooler. I experienced the same issue with my 06 RT. I started the bike for a couple of minutes then shut off. I let stand for 20 minutes then checked the oil level which was not in the window. I added oil to take it to the midpoint of the window and went for a drive. After parking it overnight I checked the oil level and it is over top of the window. Has anyone else experienced this?
