    Engine oil level

    I find that the method of checking the oil level is not easy. On the motorcycle log, side stand, cold engine, run 1mn30 without accelerating, stop then check 3mn later. Do you control like that? or some other way?

    Front frame to engine bolt torque?

    I’m going to put on new dresser bars so I want to make sure it’s torqued correctly. In my book the only value I can find for this bolt is “See Note”. The problem is I don’t see the note... anywhere in the book. Does anyone know what the proper torque is?
  13. Engine rattle/piston slap query

    The Rocket is 7 months and 13,000klm old. When cold, at 1800 revs there is a loud rattle noise. It appears to stop at 2000 revs and appears to go away when hot. The dealer is yet to investigate ( 4 weeks booking time). Question - has anyone else experienced this symptom?

    Check engine light automatic at 600 miles?

    Hey, my check engine light came on today but I looked down and I was at 599 miles. Is it set to automatically come on at 600 miles to tell you to get your first service or do I need to get more concerned it's something real? Bike is running normally.
