    Default oil capacity 1330

    i recently did an oil change on my 2016 f3lim
    i checked the handbook and the workshop manual and it specd 4.7 litres with filter
    so thats what it got......i dont try to check with dipstick as i find dry sump engines a little fluky to check

    anyway,a punter comes over for an oil change,not long after,with a 2019 F3 so i checked his book for capacity,just to be anal, and it calls for 5.2 litres

    so i went back to my bike and checked the dip stick(something i never do...i change oil every 5000kms or 3000miles)and i find no oil on the dipstick

    so why are there 2 different recommends? one 4.7 and one 5.2? or am i reading things wrongly?

    Maybe one is if you change the oil filter and one is if you don't?

    BRP has spent a good bit of time and effort to explain the oil level checking procedure for the 1330 ACE engine so operator's can get a reliable dipstick reading on a fully warmed up engine. If you follow the procedure for checking the oil level beginning on pg 115 of your operator's guide you will routinely get a correct reading on the dipstick. If you delay any more than two minutes in checking the dipstick after turning off a fully warmed up engine gravity has begun to allow oil to drain from the dry sump tank back into the crankcase and there is not a reliable way to verify how much oil has drained out of the tank over time.
    Artillery lends dignity to what would
    otherwise be a vulgar brawl.

    I can tell you the 1330 engine is mostly unchanged for 2015 thru 2019, to the point they are directly interchangeable, electronics, harness, ECM etc. IE a 2019 engine is a direct fit in a 2015 bike and vice versa.

    Mine takes a little over 5 Quarts or 4.7 liters. So put in 4.7 and ride it then check it when you get it warm.

    5 quarts got mine to the halfway dot on the stick.

    My user handbook and service manual for the same bike have that discrepancy too. I put in 5 litres and it's always been fine.

    I trust you are familiar with the term "screw up", and its more seemly variations? It would be interesting to know if the BRP document writers sometimes just do a poor job of quality control over the writing process, or just the translation process from French to English. Being in Quebec BRP by law is a French first company.
