I'm a new member and new to BMW so please be patient!
I have 1000k on my new 09 K1300R and decided to day to do a oil change today since the snow is melting (finally). I should have taken it to the dealer for its 1000k check up but thats a long way away and i wont be able to hit the highway till june at this rate missing valuable riding time! Figured what the hell, i do it on my car, what could go wrong!
Anyway i drained the oil from the engine, removed the oil filter no problem.
Whats getting me is the oil is not draining from the fill reservouir. The bike says its still full in the little level indicator pipe.
I thought the oil should drain thru the engine but it seems to be hung up.
Looking a little closer at the manual it says if the engine hasn't been used lately (and cold) it could get hung up in the sump.
I could suck the oil out ot the reserviour but what then, if i cant refill and get the oil into the engine i'm pretty much screwed???
