Hi all,
I'm new to this forum and it certainly looks like the right place to be asking questions regarding the DRZ400e.

I recently brought a 2008 model in great nick with only 4,500k's on the clock.
I was wondering if someone could help me in regards to oil capacity and what type of oil would likely be in the bike at the moment?
I have no record of oil type. A friend told me that he was quite sure the oil capacity was 1.7 liters? Could someone please confirm this please?
Am waiting to do an oil change and would appreciate any feedback.

Thanks Heaps!
Cactus

I have always used Motul 5100 10w40 , it may differ if you live in a very cold or hot area ? perhaps check with a local dealer ..

I use Caltex Delo 400 diesel oil in my DRZ. You can buy it in 20L containers and it makes it more affordable to change your oil more often. Fresh oil after about 1500km promotes long engine life in small 4 strike motors that get hot. I used to change my oil at 500 km intervals when I was racing or went on a hard off -road ride.
