2000 yz426 oil change

This will be my first time changing the oil on my 426, I'll be changing the filter also. How do you tell how much oil to put in because I have nothing to measure the amount of oil I drain out? The only info on a 426 oil change I have found is for a 2001-2002. Thanks

The info for the '01-'02 is exactly correct for yours.

Be certain to drain both the frame reservoir AND the crankcase drain, or you will over fill. With a filter change, they take about 1.5-1.6 quarts.

Note: the link in the post above works also, but the manuals there are mostly protected against printing, whereas the Euro site is not.

Thanks for the help guys, and one last question, I repacked my big gun exhuast and added a screen type spark arrester, do you think I need to rejet or should it be ok?
