    Hey guys. This is my first oil change on my 06 Busa. And I read somewhere that it only had a 3.75 quart capacity. I just put 5 quarts into it and still cant see any. Have I added too much? I did drain it completely.

    Your not supposed to see it in the top of the filler like a lawnmower.

    When you change the oil and filter...warm up the engine first...right after a ride is a good time to do it. With the engine off drain the oil, allow at least 10 minutes...install a new filter, replace
    the drain plug (torque is 16.5 ft lbs), add four quarts of fresh oil. Warm the engine back up, shut it off and let it set a few minutes...with the bike on level ground and in the upright position the oil should be near the full mark on the sight glass.

    If you check the oil level with the bike on a rear stand you WILL GET A LOW READING...the bike should be on front and rear stands or BOTH tires on the ground

    I'm wondering if it's on the side stand.

    We did have a guy that did that...couldn't figure out why his bike was using SO much oil

    Buy it by the gallon and when you also change the filter pour it all in.

    06 busa and 1st oil change... hope you bought it used and that you havent been riding it around with 5+ quarts of oil in it. I'm sure you probably did but next time you change your oil, dont forget to buy a new crush washer for the oil pan drain plug. It WILL leak on you if you keep reusing it.
