Some in the clutch basket if you really wanted to get all the old stuff out (a bunch of other spots as well if you wanted to get really picky)

I usually add 2 liters, run it then add another half liter. Seems to always bring mine to full on the dipstick.

That's what I should have done, and will do next time. I filled the new filter before inserting in place of the old one. Took about 200 mls. Then, I poured about 2.5L in the tank when it overflowed, alot. I ran it until heated up and the level is right at max. So, 2L after buttoning it up, run it for a while til heated, then top her off. No more mess. Thanks.

After the last change, I installed the Scotts stainless filter. Added about 3 liters, same as always. It read full on the screw in stick, after running some miles it read over, so I removed some. Then it read low, so I added some. This continues on. Is it the Scotts filter, or is it something else?

Don't forget the oil screen in the tank. You won't get more oil, but you may see some flakes of metal, paint, gasket goo, etc.

I clean this tank screen every oil change in the first 10k miles, then only when it's valve adjustment time, or once every 10k miles. Lot's of scary stuff in the first couple of oil changes.

Of course there is.......on the bottom of your shoe, and then on your wife's nice clean carpet or floor right after you go inside to take a pee, and grab a cool beverage to celebrate your really clean 950 oil change.

I add 2.5l. Run the engine until the thermometer reads ~6 bars. Then add another 0.5l. Then I ride the bike and get the temp to a realistic/normal operating temperature. At that point, the oil level is just above MIN. I then add oil very slowly... maybe 0.05l at a time until to reads MAX. I think the important part is to have the bike at normal operating temperature... not just 6 bars after a cold start. When I check the oil, it's always after a ride, so I know the bike is at normal operating temperature. It's difficult to get just right because the oil level changes very fast from MIN to MAX.
