Oil overfilled from factory

Recommended Posts


Have one tank of gas thru my new FZ07. Two days ago I noticed a little oil on the parking lot right under the airbox drain hose. Oil level looked high so I drained some out until it was on the high mark on the glass and took out just a little over 200 mL. Is that enough that I should be worried about seals or anything?

You should not have to worry about that at all.  As long as the sitting level (at min 10 minutes after shut down) is at the Level mark it is good.  If the bike sits all that oil is still draining downward while hot and as it cools.  I would not worry about it.
