Not just an issue with the Burmans. Had to remove a body panel to drain the oil on my 1995 Kawasaki Concours sport touring motorcycle too. This is pretty common with motorcycles and scooters that have bodywork - and most of them do these days.

When I changed the final gear oil I measured the oil that came out. It was almost 13 oz. You said to put 10.6 oz in. I was not sure if I should replace the same amount that was drained or only do the 10.6 oz.
I put 12 oz. back am I ok or should I drain some.

final gear oil change

The Suzuki Shop Manual states:
Final Gear Oil Change:
Oil change: 300 ml (10.1 /10.6 US/IMP oz)
OverHaul : 430 ml (14.5 / 15.1 US/Imp oz)
Seems pretty clear in the shop manual. Most measuring cups have both oz, and ml measurements, but you may want to account for the little bit that never comes out of the measuring cup,.... and allow a "bit" extra to make up for it, although it *can't * be that much.
have a good one..

If you look at my picture of the final gear oil change you will actually see right above the filler plug 300ml cast right into the casing.

However I think you will be ok with what you put in.

Thanks for the replies....guess next time I won't measure what comes out...... I'm not much of a mechanic and this was the first servicing so I was a little bit over cautious.....I was just thrilled I didn't break anything taking it apart.

refill amounts

I have done 1 oil change and 1 service so far in 1000 klms and both times it has taken just OVER 3 liters to get it to the fill mark. I know what the manual says and what is stamped on the engine but what I think makes up for the difference is the personal draining procedure and time. I always change my fluids hot, let it drain for about 1/2 hour and even lean the bike over to be totally anal. As far as the trans and final drive, it may have taken more also but ya just fill to when it runs out. There is the difference between fill and overhaul amounts and I think it just depends on whose doing the job.

I just performed my 600mi service thanks to you. Without the pics, I would have been guessing as to where the various drain and filler plugs were. Thank you.

I came across this site as a result of a google search and I think its great! Frankly, I thought I was the only one who is as excited about the Burgman as I am. This machine represents the next phase of motorcycle technology.

Your post brought a smile to my face and made my day I just finished doing my 6000 km service along with changing plugs and cleaning the CVT filter. Yes I took more pics and will post them soon........I'm off to bed ( grumbles.......stupid midnight shift.....grumble)

Glad the photos worked out for you.
