Hey guys. A week ago I did an oil change on my 2013 r6. I bought the oil and filter from a Yamaha dealer. The guy told me the bike takes 2.5qts. I didn't have the manual so I just put 2.5 qts in and called it a day.

Yesterday my manual came in the mail and it says it needs 2.75qts!!!

The oil light never came on the bike and the bike only has 600 miles on it. Do you guys think I've damaged something by running it with not enough oil?

did you check the dipstick?? There is a recommended amount and then there is the correct amount.
Yes and it seemed to be on the lowend of the markings. The way I checked it was I took out the dip stick cleaned it then put it back in without tightening and sat on the bike to make it level. Then got off and checked it.

I'm thinking it shouldn't be a problem because I never go above 6,000 rpm if that matters. I'm doing another oil change tomorrow as it just hit the 600 mile mark. I'm hoping I didn't do any damage.
