    There used to be a saying back in my younger days, “Don’t sweat the small _hit!” If it was completely covering the glass and you had no idea how much oil you put in it, maybe you might want to think about draining some out. If you see the line there is no reason for concern. Don’t worry boxers will eat the excess for you in no time.

    Added oil to my R1200RT and got the level just below the high mark. Is it safe to run it like this or do I need to drain some out? I know when the engine
    gets hot the oil will expand. Any way to reduce the level without loosening the drain plug. Thanks.
