Hello everybody I believe this is posted in the correct section. I'm a novice when it comes to motorcycle maintanence and in need of some help. I own a 2001 kawasaki er5 When topping up the oil and inspecting the level in the small viewing spot err? See picture. Do I take the reading of the bike off or on? And if on does it require to be warmed up? What I do know is when inspecting it the bike should be upright and centerd. Btw the picture included is when the bike is off. When it's on its clear with no oil in the clearing as seen in picture this has got me baffled. Cheers.
