    Wrong trade Roadiemort. For this step you need a PLUMBER.

    Thank you. I kept trying to find a good place to measure across the frame. Didn’t think of trying a vertical measurement.

    That's genius.

    Sometimes it becomes necessary to level the bike. Fabricating foot peg mounts, relocating tail lights, etc. The frame doesn't offer a good place to check level so I use a torpedo level and plumb the rear brake disc or driven pulley. Quick and simple.

    Now I have to go look! Edit: I wasn't thinking when I said that. I did see that when using the 2 2X4's it isn't 100% level for us obsessives. Still leans ever so slightly left. The only reason I ever wanted it level was to check the oil which after reading I no longer do.

    Me too. But not a 4x4....that extra 1/2” will push the bike over to the right.

    Eyeball calibration is sufficient in this case.

    Lol. Appreciate it. Thought that might be the case, but only after spending half an hour making sure it was perfectly level.

    As my FIL says, “ Don’t think too hard, you’ll hurt the team”. I just fill it and then sit on the bike until it quits dripping. It’s not that critical.

    You are overthinking the whole thing. Hold the bike where it looks relatively level and you will be good. You could even put in the amount that the manual calls for. lol

    Waaaaaay over thinking it. To drain oil/transfer case fluid I use a block of wood under kickstand to get it all out.

    Best Way to Level a R*?

    Just changed out my transfer case oil and had a difficult time trying to figure out the best spot to measure the level of my bike. Ended up laying the level across the frame with the seat off. Curious how everyone else levels their bikes when required. Or if I’m overthinking it and should just toss it up on the jackstand, eyeball it and call it good
