Well congrats to you too... :thumbupCongrats! I was a Certified Tech, Owned, Operated and sold 3 shops and managed several others.
The R-6 actually holds 3/4 of a qt of oil that Never drains out unless the engine is disassembled. 2.75 qts IS THE PROPER amount of oil with a filter.
Please show me where there is ANY example by an OEM that the oil level is checked at running level in an engine.
2.75 qts with a filter and you will NOT have a problem.
I guess when you change your oil, you don't drain the cooler or tip the bike over some to drain the pan better!?!
Just because the OEM says something does not necessarily mean they are right...
As long as the oil is below the crankshaft so it doesn't whip air in it and cause it to foam up, your good.
