Precision Concepts suspended XR650r.
The 1.2 liter capacity shouldn't be a dual sport issue. I've done 500-700 mile oil and filter changes with 2 KTM 400/450s ( ~ 1.2 L )and had zero problems. I did 3 oil/filter changes on the WR in Baja.

I drop in 1.5qts with filter change and it's fine. These are dry-sump bikes, and as long as oil is not squirting out the dipstick tube when the engine is running, it's not overfilled.
In the case of a dry-sump, too much is better than too little.
It can actually accomodate as much as 1.8l before it's overfilled to the point that it will blow from the tank down the overflow back into the valve cover.
