Hi first post on here just wondering if anyone can give any advise on the oil level check bolt on 2013 ktm 85. I have come to do first oil change and put 500ml of oil in.....then the oil should slowly come out of oil level check bolt. Got nothing....put another 100ml in...still nothing....another 100ml nothing. Checked the hole for blockage but seems ok. I have noticed the casings are not standard but have been told they are same size as original from previous owner......do I keep filling to see if it will eventually come out of check bolt? Thanks a lot dan

Yep referred to manual it says 500ml, it's on a level surface and it's the correct bolt I'm checking.....it's baffling

When you say casings not standard , is the level screw in the clutch outer case and this has been changed for a different one , that being the case (pun intended )I would just stick to the measured amount the manual says .

:joy: Yeh Im thinking it might be something to do with the non standard case......next time oil needs to be changed I think I will take it off and see if the oil level hole has been drilled?
