1. Place the transmission in neutral. Start the
engine and allow it to idle for several minutes.
2. Stop the engine and wait 3-5 minutes
before checking the oil level.
3. On level ground, straddle the motorcycle and bring it to the fully upright position.
4. Remove the oil fill cap/dipstick and wipe it clean. Reinstall the dipstick and turn the cap
clockwise until it seats.
5. Remove the dipstick and view the oil level. Add or remove oil as needed to bring the
level into safe operating range (between the FULL and ADD marks) on the dipstick.
6. Repeat steps 1 and 2 each time you adjust the oil level.

Fuel Level
1. On level ground, straddle the motorcycle and bring it to the fully upright position.
2. Start the engine. The low fuel indicator light will stay on if the fuel tank level is less than
one gallon (3.8 l).
3. Add fuel as needed.

Tire Pressure
1. Check tire pressure before riding,
when the tires are cold. This will provide
the most accurate reading, as riding
warms the tires and increases tire
air pressure.
2. Adjust tire pressure as needed based
on the total weight of your intended
load. Refer to the tire pressure table.
See page 61

Glad you figured tis out Irv. Just as added info. I have been checking my Vic's for over 50,000 total miles and have never, ever, never had to add any oil.
But I still check. Go figure
