Just changed my oil and filter on my GT650EFI and it's probably the same engine as yours .
It will take 3.2L of oil .
Easiest way to to do it , get a cheapo plastic  measuring jug and tip out 800ml and add the rest of a 4L oil container (you can buy it in a 4L container) to your bike . Oil level should be spot on .

What about coolant? I'm about to put some green into my bike rn.

Hey Guys,

So I thought i'd share the story of my 2010 GT650R since its an interesting one.
Many years ago i rode when i didn't have my car license, My first bike was a Suzuki Across/GSX250F(god i miss that glove box), also rode a Gsx-r 600 when i shouldn't have. Any who about a year after riding that i got my car license and stopped riding on road. Got into dirt bikes and been riding them for ages.

I decided recently since i still got all my road gear that i will get another bike and get back into it. I looked around at what was available and came across the Hyosung GT650R. The biggest think i liked was the looks and the V-twin motor vs 4 cylinders/parallel motors.
In November 2017 i purchased a 2010 GT650R in white/black, everything at my end checked out and it was for a really cheap price with only minor scuffs. Got my rwc pretty easy the next week after replacing some minor parts and went down to Vic Roads and this is where my saga began.

As i was at Vic Roads before i even had the bike inspected i was informed that i needed to have a VIV on the bike, which kinda put me in a big pickle. I tried to contact the guy i brought the bike off to find a disconnected phone and no longer living at the address where i got the bike. So i went and spoke to a couple of VIV inspectors and pretty much came to the conclusion that i'm pretty screwed to get the VIV on that bike. The things that they can pick to knock is back is unbelievable to the point you'd pretty much never get a VIV done.

So fate put me on another search and i came across a 2013 GT650R frame with clear title and i jumped at it. Used my 2010 for all the donor parts and built the frame up.
Everything fitted quite well, also got to have a look at most the build quality of things and got to know every nut and bolt of the bike. Whilst building the bike i was disappointed when i found the stem bearings were not even packed properly. But other than that most of the rest of the bike was pretty good.
Using my freshly built 2013 frame, i went and got my rwc which passed with flying colors and got my rego done the next day. Was a big relief for me to have it all sorted and able to ride.

So this is the bike when i got it finished for rwc :

The bike when i purchased it came with a stock efi muffler which i still have and a cut down gutted muffler with no core or packing and straight through. So having heard what the straight muffler sounded like (which was mega tough but too loud) i decided i had nothing to loose doing that muffler up since it was basically scrap otherwise.
I removed the end caps of the muffler, made up a new core section, drilled it on the mill, welded it onto the exit end cap and wrapped it in muffler packing i got from my local bike shop. It turned out pretty nicely, not as loud as the straight muffler, but still very noticeable sounds great when its popping.
That was the first part to go on the bike.

The muffler :

After about a week of riding about, i wasn't happy with the gear linkages as mine had plenty of slop in the joints and the lever on the foot peg also had too much slack. So i got myself some grease-able spherical rod ends, machined up a new shaft and a much thicker washer (for the foot peg) in the lathe and that seemed most the sloppiness out of the shifter.

The Gear Linkage :

I rode the bike for a couple of weeks and noticed i had some issues when the bike was hot and i was idling at lights, a small misfire would occur and get worse to the point of stalling. So when i got home that day i had a look over the bike and noticed my stator to regulator connector had melted shorting out 2 of the stator coils and basically fried my charging system. So i did some research on here about it all, and decided to investigate the wiring loom some more. I was pretty disappointed in the main power feed and ground connections of the entire loom. They are such a thin wire for what they need to do. So after reading a fellow member upgraded his wiring in the loom i had inspiration to do it as well since i'm planning to keep this bike for a while. I used 25A wire for a main power and ground feed wire that runs from the rear to the front of the bike, i removed all the factory joins and the oem charge circuit. Using my parts bike, i added the terminals in the housing for the main 30a under the pillion seat so both fuses are being used, one for the main loom as oem and the other 30a fuse for the charge circuit. It makes it look nice and neat tho i'd still like to find somewhere to store spare fuses as i've lost the spare location now.

Stator + Wiring Mods :

As i've been upgrading the loom, i also ordered a Suzuki GS125/GN125 Neutral Switch to give me outputs for all gears and neutral. Whilst this does fit, what you are lacking is a in gear(1-6) wire for the ecu. So with a little fix i got individual 1-6+N wires and an additional wire that gives in gear. So that's all fitted now.

Gear Indicator + Switch :

The display is a unit from Aliexpress as it was the only one i could find that is simple and gives individual gear position wires. Some trick hacking and modifying of items i was about to mount it within the dash.

Other things i've recently done is replaced the clutch perch so it has a working switch instead of bypassed and also replaced the side stand switch with another unit and also added some wires with a switch under the pillion seat so if i ever have any trouble i can just bypass it easily.

I also replaced the rear brake caliper with the newer model one, i wasn't happy with how it felt previously and after trying a few different masters which made no difference to the feel, the new caliper option should hopefully be an improvement (single opposing pistons vs twin piston on one side).

(Pics to come)

The speedometer on my bike was out by 10%, i noticed when doing 110 on the highway, getting passed left and right that something was up. So i tested it against a gps speedo and found doing 100m/h was actually 90km/h, so i got myself a speedohealer unit and set it up for 8% correction, least it gives me a small gap if i'm sitting at say 100 i'm doing 98. Made a world of difference and was a direct plug in unit, extemely easy to setup.

I have got myself a spare set of fairings and tank, which im looking to do up for the bike, however im not too sure what colour or graphics i want to get done for it. Its a shame you cant get some of the Hyo graphics as some do look nice, but i'm possibly going to either go with a full red or full white and break it all up with some graphics. Tho this is an idea for the future, not sure when.

I had to replace the coolant bottle, i noticed this suffered from heat and had gone brittle since its directly above the rear cylinder exhaust. So i wrapped it with some heatshield material. I also made a new cap for it too.

Also got a new clutch on the way (EBC Kevlar), this one is showing its signs of age, original clutch im guessing too. I'll replace the clutch cable and such items at the same time as well as do an oil change.

Thats about it for the moment, i got other things i want to do such as a steering dampener and a few other minor things but when the time arises, for the moment i just want to ride and enjoy it.

Also to do a few things, i got a gt250r that i came across for the right price for some spare bits and pieces, i.e. fairings, levers, etc.... So i've got a GT250R motor 2011 EFI thats in good condition and runs well that i'm willing to part with.

This is the bikes most recent pics (without the new rear caliper).

I've also got a spare gear indicator display the same as i used in my cluster if anyone i wanting one, i could be persuaded to let it go.

Mine is also green. Any ethylene glycol based coolant will do.

The coolant in my bike is green, is it correct or not I have no idea, but it's working so far!
Haha sexy bike bro mine looks the exact same and I'll look into it more thanks for letting me know

On the right side of the engine casing is a small round piece of glass.

There is a high and a low level indicator beside the glass. Holding the bike level, you should see your oil level somewhere between the two.

These bikes take 3.6L of oil if you are changing the filter at the same time, 3.4L if not. I would recommend always changing the filter and oil together.

Question, why did your bike have no coolant? This is not an idle question. This is a leading question. No coolant is most likely a symptom, not the root cause of the problem.
Honestly I got the bike about two months ago so I'm assuming the guy previously and I just noticed it now just cause it was getting hotter and he cold ND hot on my speedo was going up which never happened so I looked into the coolant and none or barely in there so that's why I'm asking what color to put or what exact bottle to buy for my exact bike
I can't seem to find the manual for my specific bike

Yes I have a question, why were you drinking coffee during your ride?

Sorry to highjack the thread for one second here, but 3.6 and 3.4 sounds kind of extra to me, I always use 3 liters with or without a filter, always had it at full through the glass.
