4.3 US Quarts with filter change. Run the motor for 10-15 minutes with a ride or not and then remember to pull BOTH plugs.

With the filter I put on (probably a little larger than stock) I added 5 qts on the button, and when the oil is checked according to the Star motorcycle procedure, level is right on the upper mark on the dip stick.

12 fl. oz = 355 ML according to my bottle of beer
i always change my oil and filter using 5 quarts total
refill with 4 quarts, ride it around the block 1 time and top it off with the last quart
have never had a single issue with oil leaks
according to google,
1 US quart = 0.946352946 liters
