Title: œil level window lighting
Post by: sig on May 20, 2019, 11:47:19 pm

Hello

IN TEST PHASE

Tired of having to take a flashlight every time to control my oil level  :-\ :-\ :-\


So I installed an LED 12V strip with a switch  ;) ;) ;)

That is a nice little feature. I have to use my phone flashlight everytime I look down there.

I usually check my oil in the daylight!

Getting the bike level is tougher than seeing the level. 8)

When I had a C10 I only looked at it after the oil change.  It never used any oil.  Same with the C14.  But a good idea with the light, though.

I agree- change oil, add 4.75 qts. Fuggetaboutit. Go 5,000 miles, repeat. Fuggetaboutit. Never had a Kawasaki use any oil no matter how many miles.

you are posting this in the C10 area... so please, understand, that's a bit of an "overfill" for a C10...

Just for shits and giggles, put the bike on the center stand when cold and start it looking into the oil window- and be amazed how long it takes for the oil to reappear and start circulating..
