Smile Newbie needs help

Being a proud 1198 owner for a little while ( great bike, best I ever had ! ) I am on the other hand not a very technical person and wonder if there is an easy way to top up the engine oil without removing the fairing.


Thanks for any advice.

Nope, still up front on the 1198. Fairing off is only real way i'm afraid.


.....but better in YELLOW, or Bloo and now even RED
