As long as there aren’t any holes in the mesh, and the rubber seals are intact, you can backflush and reuse the filter.
I don’t bother with the dipstick, I just replace whatever came out with 1.7 liters or 1.8 quarts. I’ve used Yamalube 4R semi-syn and Mobil 1 15w-50 automotive full syn with good results, but the latter is cheaper.
If you want to check the level between changes you are right, you need to run the motor for a bit to get an accurate reading. I also like to warm it up before changing, warm oil drains quicker and it gives me an excuse to fire it up in the garage.

Like we need an excuse to fire up these beasts. Keep riding hard and thanks for all the responces in the past.
