I recently did my own first oil change. After reading the manual I purchased four quarts of oil. The manual says that the capacity of the case is 3.9 quarts. I drained from both the front and back quarts. After all was done, I seem to be coming up short. When checking the oil as described, the level does not even touch the dip stick. Yes I seated it but did not screw it in as described. If I let the bike down on the kick stand, it does register.
Is there something I am missing. Maybe the capacity of the filter is not included in the manual.
Any ideas from others who have done many of these?
