im a little confused on oil level please help
i started my engine like every post said to do and the manual. i let it run for about 4 minutes. then i shut it off and checked the oil level 5 minutes later. my oil after the motor has been started is at the top bend in the dipstick I have read on the post it is suppose to be in between the two bends of the dipstick. where should my oil level be when the engine is cold? when its warm?
thanks guys i know its probably been asked but i spend 30 minutes looking around for where it is suppose to be when cold and had no success .

There is no "when its cold" reading. It needs to be warmed up, let idle for a bit, then shut it off, and let it sit for 30 seconds and check it. Should be in the middle.
FWIW, I have checked mine cold, sitting level on the trailer, and its in the middle of the bend, but I am NOT telling you to do that, and BRP does not say to do that either
