I bet a lot of folks did. Don't know why but my mind was thinking about 8 cylinder truck engines when I posted that attachment.

And don't just dump in 4.1 litres when you change oil and filter as you may overfill it. Depends on how you drain the oil - drain on centre stand then side stand gets another 0.2 litres out.Refill with ~3.8 litres, warm the bike up then check the oil and top up.

Just finished. Yep, did that. Put exactly 1gallon and 300 ML back in.
