    On my 89 Lemans you fill the transmission with 750cc and it fills up to the bottom of the transmission fill hole. On the 1400 it calls for 430cc but needs 500cc to fill to the bottom of the fill hole. I’m wondering which is the correct level. Am I overfilling if I fill to the bottom of the fill hole on the 1400? Opinions?

    What Paul said...
    You check the correct engine oil with the bike sitting upright, NOT on the side stand. The measurement of the trans oil should be no different. Leaned over, you could put in more oil than called for.
