Oil Capacity?????

I just bought an 04 10r and need to find out what the motor oil capacity is. Before I get flamed, I have searched and searched and searched this site and NOTHING ever comes up! I'll do a search for oil capacity and get 50 pages of stuff that has nothing to do with oil. If someone knows how much oil the bike takes when replacing the filter also, I would greatly appreciate it.

there is a tag on the bottom of the Clutch cover that gives the specs in all conditions like filter removal or not and in Liters....you don't even need a manual to find it out.

hey on an 04 zx10r the oil capacity is 3.2 us quarts with an oil filter change and 2.9 qts without filter change. but to get it right i wouldnt even worry about getting to technical on how much goes in there because sometimes you dont get all the oil out. best is to change oil and filter, then fill until you see the oil in the middle of the side window of the clutch cover. then start the bike up for about 1 min. wait about 5-10 mins for the oil to drain back and check where it is on the window. add as necessary to get to the middle of window. but its about 3.2 qts.

GEN 5!!!

you can also check some specs on kawi web site under owner info on the main screen. then choose year, cc's, then it will give you the models and click which ever you have. then click on specs and it will give you the basic specs. firing order, fork oil capac., oil capac., fuel capac., ect..... or just ask someone on this site.
