Help me settle a little dispute. How much oil do you guys put into your bike after an oilchange, without dropping the oil filter?? How often do you clean the screen in the oil line?? Sorry for the lamo ?s. Thanks Big Mark

I change the filter every time. I start off with 1000cc and do the pressure check per the manual, shutdown, check qty and add if needed. I only check the screen after break-in and then maybe every 6th oil change.

It's been dusty so I've been changing every other ride. Drain, add 1.5L, check the filter every couple of changes. I haven't checked the screen in the front tube in a while.
