Ok, I have done my homework and have only found one thread that shows a mod geared to see your oil sight glass readily. I find the current arrangement hard to use. As it stands now it is completely useless to have a sight glass you can't see readily...I mean come on Suzuki

Has anyone done a mod for this? I was think of drilling a hole adjacent to the glass through the tupperware and installing a rubber grommet to finish the edge of the hole. I'd love to get comments and thoughts on doing this.

Getting down to see it can be a pain for us older folks (I'm 64 like you). It's not the getting down there that's so bad it's the getting back up. :)

Boroscopes are available for less than a hundred bucks on ebay they would have many uses just on your Burgman, including seeing clearly your oil level without having to get on your knees.

If you cant get down to check the oil window. Just wait until the llow oil indicator comes onj. Youi will be down about 1/2 qt. Took me allmost 3500 highway miles for it to reach that point.

Comon you guys, I'm 80 and I don't have any problems.
Anyway, I change oil every 2000 miles, and don't really need to check it.

Hi,
when I turn the key (dont start the engine) the oil lamp is "on". When I start it goes out (sorry for my bad englisch)....

Is that normal.

If I want to check the oil (burgman650) is an allmost full glass enough? (Cold engine)

Regards

I haven't had my 650 very long and don't know where the sight glass is located. I saw the picture in the owner's manual but it didn't show where the darn thing is actually located. Inspecting the bike, I saw something in a recess near the side stand, but don't know if this it or not.
