Thanks drdarrin. That's all? Interested in any other opinions. Dealer snafu servicing - did not set some bolt to proper torque when checking/adjusting valve clearance - oil leaked on engine causing lots of smoke, scared crap out of me. One check showed oil level at lowest normal range. I tried to limp back to civilization, but amount of smoke/smell caused me to stop again. Oil check here did not register. I drove no further and had to hike. Freaked out I may have rune even a little bit with no oil-Yikes. Brought it to dealer and they said there was 2 quarts remaining despite dipstick being dry. Of course they want to CYA-so looking to confirm?

I'm surprised the 700 would keep moving with just 2 quarts in it. The transmission will stop working before it gets low enough on oil to do harm to the motor.

My experience with the 700 is very limited. Iíve owned my 2016 for little more than a year and Iíve added less than 300 miles. It only gets used in the Arizona desert during the winter. Iíve changed the oil once, just before storing for the summer months. So, like most, Iím still learning.

Since your oil level got so low, Iíd keep a real close eye on metal shavings in the oil. Hopefully no damage was done but you never know.

I recently purchased a 2016 700 that’s had 9000 miles on it. I put about 60 miles on it and it and one morning went for a ride and that night wouldn’t move anymore. Checked the oil and nothing on the dip stick. One whole quart put the level right at the very bottom of the dip stick, I put almost two whole quarts in it before it was to the full line. Called the place I bought it from and they ended up rebuilding the engine for me thank goodness! Running great ever since!
