    Stupid newbie question even though I have had my zed for 15 years! But how many litres of oil do people put in their zeds? TT versions?

    Cheers

    Geez, I hope you're using US quarts and not pommie ones :eek:


    I throw some in the oil filter, chuck in a bit under 4 litres and fill according to the dipstick :cool:

    I've just read heaps of posts back from 2004 and so many different responses lol. Just don't want to add too much or too little. Avg is around 4 litres which from memory is what I used to do when I was running Amsoil in the zed including in the filter.
    Thanks to everyone for the responses!

    Fill it up until it reads right on the dip stick. Not very hard.

    the last 3 services I've done on my z I've followed the fsm to the letter. 0.4 for the filter and 3 litres for the engine. the dipstick I find hard to read so I know it's either just under the h line or a little over the h line.
