i own a KTM 450 EXC 2004 model.
in the manual it says to check the oil level hot or cold. when checking it cold, it says the oil level should be at the lower edge of the sight glass(1/4 of the way up) and when checking it warm, it should be at the upper edge of the sight glass(3/4 of the way up).
However, the oil level stays the exact same, weather hot or cold. doesn't rise at all...ive run the bike until the fan comes on but still stays at the same level regardless.
Wondering if anyone else has experienced this before? and why it would occur?
and if its anything to be concerned about?
bike is on a horizontal stand/level surface(not on the side stand).
at the moment, the oil level is sitting exactly half way(hot and cold).
im running the recommended oil brand in my bike. Motorex Cross Power 4t Fully Synthetic 10w-50
