I made the switch to Amsoil 10x40 today. No big deal, just a standard oil change but here is the wierd part. After changing the filter I put in 3.5 quarts like the manual says. I started the engine and let her run for a few minutes then shut it down and checked the oil.(I'm in my garage on level ground :-) ) The oil level meter hits just about the "low" indicator on the glass. I repeated the above a couple of times and it does not change the oil level. Sooooo I put the .5 quarts of oil that I had remaining into the bike and now the oil level reads full.
Anyone else run into this? What should I trust the oil level indicator or the manual???
