Here we go. a little tricky to compare cm with inch. But it looks to me tt the total length and the marks are the same.

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
