I know there is a lot of discussion on this and different results from different procedures so I wanted to share my story. 560 miles on bike. Got 4 quarts of Kawasaki 10w-40 and a HiFlo brand filter model HF-303 from the local shop. I wanted a Kawasaki filter but they didn't have one and said the HiFlo was good. All work was done on the side stand. I started the bike up and let it warm up then shut it off and pulled the drain plug and removed the oil fill cap. I let it drain for probably an hour. I was going to let it drain for less but taking the oil filter off became a 1 hour task so I left the plug out the whole time. I guess angry Hulk installed my filter too like others. I tried 2 oil filter wrenches and a strap wrench with no luck. I ended up doing the old screwdriver and hammer trick. After getting the old filter off I put the new one on without pre-filling it. I snugged it up enough where it wouldn't leak but loose enough that I could back it back off by hand if I needed to burp it. Then I put the drain plug back in and put 3 quarts of oil in. I crossed my fingers and fires it up and the light went out in about 3-4 seconds. Yayyy!!! I shut it off and had a friend hold it up straight while I added more oil to top it off. At 3 1/2 quarts I started it up again and let it run for a good 30-40 seconds then shut it off and let it sit a couple of minutes. I stood her up straight again and finished filling her up. It took exactly 4 quarts and the level is almost exactly in the middle between the 2 lines. Thanks for listening.
