Dip stick threaded in or not.

Sorry if this had been discussed but Iím about ready to change the oil in my 2016 750 king quad and am unsure if to check the proper level you should thread the dipstick or not. Hondas are usually not which is what Iíve ran in the past.

Iíd thread the disptick till itís lightly seated when checking the oil level. That way youíll have a more accurate reading. Also making sure the ground your quad is sitting on is as level as possible will also guarantee more precise oil levels as well.

The manual is clear on this for the KQ 700.... check it WITHOUT screwing it in... I know its counterintuitive but... that what it says...otherwise you'll be about 1/2 l low...that is reading 1/2 l more than you really have...

Agree with others who say... Do not thread it in, manual specifies not too. Just changed my oil in my 2019 KQ and the dealer, or suzuki, had the oil filter on so tight it was insane

Thanks for the replies guys! I agree with the filter I had a really hard time getting mine off. Hand tighten only
