So, there is nothing to be concerned about with the amount of oil that dropped out as pictured. A cupful would have been a fraction of what's there.

Again, I've chosen a stainless steel oil filter over the paper filters. If a water pump seal fails, water leaks into the engine oil which will effect the paper filters and not allow the oil to flow causing low oil pressure. When this happens, some people just stop and remove the paper oil filter then continue riding until they can do the water pump seal.
Hey Joe, any feedback on the long term results of the above two changes you elected to make?
