Ok i got my raptor like a month a ago so therefore i am still breaking it in. Today i checked the oil and i was almost to the low mark and was wondering why? It isnt leaking anywhere and its still new. Well i dont ever remember having to add oil to my warrior when i bought that new so i was wondering why it may be? any suggestions would be appreciated Thanks

are you checking it the right way??? it might sound stupid but your suposed to let it run for a min or 2 and then let it sit for another 2 min then check it...plus ever since i had my raptor i never got the same reading more than once...its always changing on me and i know im not buring it up....so i do as i told you and jsut make sure its full before riding............i just remembered something is that the oil that you put it or the oil that came in it??? becasue when i got mine the stupid dealer had it low i had to add oil right away in mine..so theres something to think about.

Well in this case i would say put some oil
in it just a little at a time keep doing test until your sure the oil level is correct?
