To answer your question, I had a 2015 v7 special and now a 2017 v7III special and a v85. I'm 74 and if I could grow a 1/2" (anywhere, please) I'd be 5'8". I find them very comfortable and simple to navigate around the garage and on the road. Now the v85 is way too tall, but I love it too even...
But was it the same owner? If there are now two broken wheels we need to know. I know I saw this same issue posted several weeks back on one of the forums but don't remember which one.
Cal, are you that same guy?
All the latest use 10/60. Do a search here for more oil info than you ever needed to know. Yours is a plain V7. Every year can be different for the amount and type used in the 5-6 speed trans and the rear end.
See the report from KGLM who seems to have disappeared from here. Mine had a similar issue with rings and lost power and the ability to accelerate under full throttle. Yours is using more oil than I'd want and about the same...
Pridanc, yes ,that answers the question. I'd call that 5 rings down and I run 4. I'm guessing that your spring and the lower shock are pretty close to the same distance.
Now my only concern is will I lose enough ground clearance to make me upset.
Refills are 160cc. Original 180cc. I think I'd drain it overnight and see how much comes out. I bet they just overfilled it. The factory considers close enough to be their standard. If it continues leaking haul it back to the dealer.
