Didn't had time to go to the garage and check the dims of the dipstick. Will do on the weekend.

Thks Dave for the Info. Will measure my dipstick as well and take a photo.
3 Quarts are arnd 2,8 l. With 2,5 l (2,1 quart) i am at the lower upper mark (dont know how to express better), which seems to be the original mark on the dipstick, because the mark is going around the stick.

I have spoken to some riders already, but everybody fills it to the mark on the dipstick or to the stairs when talking of a Deluxe. Nobody measures the quantity. Maybe exact measuring is something only germans are interested in.... ;-))

Thomas,

Here is a picture of my dipstick. I am not sure if the dipstick is original. I have a Deluxe oil pan on my bike, and Carl Vandre welded on the dipstick tube. He may have made the dipstick too - that man could make anything!

I think it takes 3 quarts - I didn't count last time I changed the oil - just filled it up to the upper mark.

Hi

i have recently changed oil of my Henderson KJ 29. I wonder how many liters/quarts have to be filled into the engine. The dipstick of my bike has 3 upper marks. The 2 upper marks seems to be selfmade and i am not sure if the marks are correct at all.

Thks for any info.

Thomas
