    If you haven't looked lately finding motor oil in becoming much like finding Waldo. I went to 4 different stores (all of them) in my little burg and found zero bottles of Mobil 1, Valvoline and Motul for an upcoming oil change. It wasn't just the R4T oil that wasn't there but a lot of other...

    I've got a 2013 roadster that was originally running 10 W 40 oil castrol I'm now running 10 W 50 oil in the machine and although running well -doesn't seem to have the same grunt as before.

    Oil leak after service

    Hello all. New member first post. Have a 2020 R3. Noticed the much mentioned oil leak from bolt on top front of engine. The thing is that it only started leaking after my 600 mile service. Oil overfilled?

    2016 Rocket 3 Roadster oil leak ???

    Noticed I've got a bit of a leak happening, I've been looking around for a schematic drawing that might explain what part is leaking so I can start trouble shooting but having no luck. Has anyone dealt with a leak coming from the bolts on the bottom left of the engine above the kick stand?

    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?

    Oil pressure gauge.

    I have a new (to me) 2015 R3T. This bike has just over 2000 miles on the odometer. When I start the engine the low oil light stays on for a few seconds, flickers then goes out. I would like to put a oil pressure gauge on the engine. Question: where can I tap in at?

    Here is something I don,t understand. I have the bottom sump off of my 2014 rocket with the non return valve removed and I have put oil in the tank, but the oil is not running out of the drilling that the non return valve fits into. I thought it would run straight out immediately. The oil tank...
