Question
How much oil how into a 99 650 savage

Answer
Hi Kathy,

The oil quantity is about 2 litres or 2.1 us quarts if you also change the oil filter.

The best thing to do is have the oil a little warm so it drains well.

Install your filter and drain plug and then add about 1.5 litres or quarts.

Start the engine and run it for a minute or two.

Let the bike sit for a few more minutes then check the oil level
in the site window on the right side of the engine
and add oil until the level is correct with the bike sitting up straight.

There should be a "F" mark for full on the oil level window.
