1. Drain your oil from both plugs under the crank case.
2. Replace both plugs (goes without saying, but I have wasted a ton of oil, by getting ahead and not putting the plugs back in, and oil on the floor. This usually is after a few Bud Lights)
3. Fill the oil to the glass level lines (1.5L or 1.6 US Qts), let sit for a moment and fill again if needed.
4. Start bike, but do not high rev it as oil will be caught in the top end.
5. Let stand for a few minutes and add if needed.
PS. Use Two2Cool in your favorite oil and you wont be disappointed!

After draining all the oil and cleaning my oil filter, (you probubly have paper filters so you replace those not clean).
I take 1 quart of oil and get that in, then i take the 2nd conatiner and go till i get to the middle of the lines on the eye glass. If in not in a hurry i normally start my bike and let it idle then shut it off and let the oil settle for a bit then check it. The only reasons its inacurate is because the oil gets in the filter and places in your engine after it runs a secound. But one you start it and get the oil in the nicks and crannys then you fill it back up if you have to.

My manual states that when checking oil in the sightglass, the level of the bike should be such that the tops of both tyres should be level. I checked this out and it does make a BIG difference
. Make sure the bike is level and add oil as neccessary. This works every time, the sightglass is not misleading.
