I searched for this and i didn't find anything that close related so i thought i would post. I'm sort of a newbie when it comes to ATV's "just got it last year".. so be easy on me, ok?... OK?!!?! lol j/k
I bought a 2011 honda trx 420 canadian trail edition last year. So i did an oil change "*second oil change*, the first one was at the honda dealer, they wanted to do the first one for some reason".. but anyway, i let it warm up before i drained it and i also replaced the oil filter. I used "GN4 genuine 4-stroke motorcycle oil, SAE 10W-30 SJ".
The thing is, i filled it up with 2.8 liters, but none is showing on the dipstick. I looked at where i put the oil in, and it's filled to the top. I did what the manual said and let it idle for 5 minutes, shut it off and wait 2-3 minutes, then check the oil, nothing... and yes, i did put the oil in the right hole!
Also, the honda dealer told me to put in 2.8 liters, which i did, but i read in the manual that it calls for 3.6-3.8 liters of oil.. kinda weird.. it's filled up though with 2.8 liters but nothing is showing on the dipstick at all, i even screwed the dipstick in and nothing touches it... did i do something wrong?
Sorry for the long story, but if you can help me i will luv you long time! lol Thanks
