I lowered the bike a while ago, just changed the oil, check the stick for all the different levels, thought I had it right in the middle.
Now I'm gettin the "puke" out the left side.
So my questions is "if you lower the bike does that change the level on the dip stick?" I think it should move more oil to the back of the crank case and show less oil on the stick.
I could use some help, cause I hate the puke issue.
Thanks.

Well, I am lowered 2" and never had that problem. Lowered about 4 others and never heard of anything from them. Did you drain from both drain plugs? Did you do the 15/3 run/set time?

I drained the oil from the plug closest to to the kick stand, as the bike was on the stand during the drain.
Should I have drained from both plugs?
So, your also saying that lowering the bike has no issues with dipstick mark?
Let me know, I'll go back out and put oil back to the middle instead of the lowest cross mark.
Thanks.
