If you do it this way, just make sure that it is not over the F line when hot. 2.5 should do you good though in the middle when cold (just what I have found for mine atleast.)Zanetti said:Drain plug torque is 15 foot-pounds.
Reccomended filter install is two full turns, although I feel that's overkill. 3/4 to 1 1/4 turns should be enough.
Fill the bike with 2.5 quarts of oil, then check the level in the window with the bike standing straight up. Add oil in small amounts until the level is at the 'F' line. Run the engine for a few minutes, shut it off, check level in window again.
