Good News: My engine is clean as hell!
Bad News: I've spent $15 on oil this week!
Take it from me... you can't judge the amount of oil by your dipstick just drain it all out, and fill it with the proper amount.

On page 3-17 of my 02 WR426FP owner's service manual it says "total amount 1.59 US qt" "Periodic oil change 1.37 US qt" "with oil filter replacement 1.48 US qt"
My 01 WR426 owners-service manual calls for 1.69US qt with oil filter replacement, 1.59US qt without a filter service. It is my own general opinion that the dipstick is close to useless as far as repeatability and accuracy goes. If you check at 2, 4, 6, 10, 15 minutes you get a different level each time. I just change oil every other ride and I don't worry about the stupid dipstick, I would not believe or trust it anyway.
