Oil Change Question

2009 YZ 450

When changing the oil anybody notice if you tip the bike just a slight amount to the left you get another 25mls (or so) out?

Should you add slightly more after doing this?

Drain the oil, change the filter, and refill with exactly 1 Liter.  Run it.  What does the dip stick say?

It's habit for me to always lean the bike side to side to get more of the old oil out. Like Gray said, just put the liter of new oil in, run, and check. Don't add extra because you got more out. Edited by Bremer120
