yeah, which is why I am confused why the service manual calls for 2.9L.

My own Triumph Authorised Workshop filled 3.9L for me, and checks with a few owners visiting the same outlet ranges from 3.2L to 3.5L.

Oil level is up to the correct level mark now I've ridden the bike.  So 3.4 ltrs it is then.

Just out of interest, I note that the 765 engine takes 3.48ltrs for a dry fill.

Thanks Tridentist! That sorted the shifting to neutral problem. I guess the clutch setting and the after market levers put it in a place where the clutch is ever so slightly dragging causing the shift issues.

Yes, the aftermarket levers often appear to cause problems - at least without adjustment. I use the raximo levers, almost because we need certain approval for auxiliary parts here in Germany. To be honest I do regret the purchase: Even in  "shortest" position 1 they appear almost as far away as the original ones. Damn short fingers (but wide hands)...... :009:

I've just taken out 3.4 ltrs allowing the sump and filter outlets to drain overnight while on a rear paddock stand.  I've had to put 3.4ltrs back in to get the oil level to the minimum dipstick mark having warmed the engine back up with the bike upright and on its wheels.

I'm going to ride it around the block and top it up as required.  It seems though that the 3.2ltr dry fill capacity is questionable and I wouldn't be surprised if I end up using 3.5+ ltrs of engine oil.

Thanks for that. It felt right when I first sat on it and the test ride confirmed it. Cheers .  :763:

I also experienced the issue finding neutral but have been able to solve this by adjusting the clutch - both on lever and cable mount close to the clutch. Finding the best balance is quite sensitve.

You will find it perfect for those old bones as I do just enjoy as they are surprisingly comfy, 2hrs no problem. :047:

New shifter fitted under warranty, slightly better but certainly not buttery smooth as advertised. I give in now and will live with it, ease of slightly to cure the 5th to 6th problem which sort of defeats the object of quick shifting! :164:

TEC bar end mirrors less than £50 and look and work well. :028:
