Well im very upset, strangest thing happened this morning i dont know if it was because i started using a diff. kind of oil but while i was warming it up to ride i noticed this burning smell coming from handle bar area and couldnt trace it, smell like oil so 1st thing i did was check the dip stick after i shut it off for a couple minutes though. and the first two atempts i got no reading!! on the third i got a little on the very tip. :a2 im scared i damaged the engine and will be takin it to the dealer soon as i can cuz (not open on mon.) so tomm. will call to set up an appt. i was wondering if anyone else has experienced this? Ive got 4527 miles on it and changed the oil and filter at 4k but switched to Motul 5100 from the Yamalube i dont think its normal, it couldnt have burned it off in 500 miles?! also does it do any damage to engine/clutch to use auto oil10w30 just to get it to Yam. tomm? would appreciate some feedback since this is my first bike and im doing everything by the book with it, and since i cant call them till tommorow.
