oil capacity

I did an oil change on my 2007 700 grizz and the book says it takes 2.1 litres when you also change the oil filter. I actually put in almost 3 litres and the dipstick reads good to go. Is my oil going somewhere it shoudn't or whats with the amount of oil i used. Bike runs good and does not burn. Should there something i need to be concerned about or what???

Fist of all, why did you add that much? Second, I would drain a little.... heat and expantion could cause some damage IMO.

The rubber cork on the dipstick could have moved and is giving you a false reading.

There is a post with measurements here as it has happened before, give that a check.

The rubber gasket needs to be all the way up the threads when checking the oil level, does the manual say to check the level when the engine is warm after running for a few minutes? And 'screw in the dipstick, or not screw it in' when changing the oil and filter?

the grizzly's dipstick does not have any threads, you just push it on. The manual says to just make sure the bike is level and then push the dipstick in and pulll it out and the level should be between the hash marks on the dipstick. No mention of the having to be warmoil warm.

Still searching for that thread about the measurements Mill

i found that thread Mill, wow, there is alot of differences. My rubber cork is about 1/2 inch from the bottom of the finger hole to the top of rubber cork, about the same that is in the picture in that thread. Almost an entire litre more than the recommended amount is surprising. The only difference i did was use a purolator filter.
It concerns me that i had to put in almost 1 whole litre to get a read close to the top of the full mark

Ok guys when you change your oil you crank it up and let it sit for a couple minutes to get a accurate reading. If you notice if you crank it up, kill it, clean the dip stick and put it back in and pull the plug back out it will be dry.

Hey there aaron, i put about 2 litres in, turned it over to get the oil cycling, for a couple of minutes, measured the dipstick, added some more, measured, added more, turned it over. Shut it off, let it sit overnite, got back at her this morning and added till it registered to almost top of the full mark on the DStick. Almost 3 litres.

3 sounds like a lot but I've added a little more than 2.5 with a filter change. Keep an eye on it your next ride.
