Just a spin on the whole subject of oil. I don't wish to debate the pro's and con's of synth or mineral, I just want to know who checks their oil in the level window hot and who checks it cold. I have just phoned my service agent to question the overfilling of my '03 ABS, services after great 3600km ride along South Africa's east coast and arid interior. The techie stated that he only checks the level window when it's hot? I am now doubting my own logic. If this has been debated at length before, forgive my ignorance.
