I just changed the oil in my KFX450 and since there isnt a dipstick im a little worried that i over did it or didnt put enough in, whats your guys method of getting it just right?

Thanks

Manual states 1.27 quarts when changed with a new oil filter (hopefully you change this everytime as well), I nomrally put in a little less and watch the fill window..soon as it's about 1/3 filled i stop there

I was washing my bike today and my lil boy loves to help me wash it and I turned my head for a few seconds and when I turned around he had the hose in my pipe, hes 3 1/2 so he didn't know what he was doing but i tipped it up let the warer run out and tried to start it and it locked up...I drained the oil and it turns over, I'm going to get more oil and a new oil filter tomorrow,,,what should I do now tho? Change oil once or a couple times? Help lol!

Add 1.5 quarts exactly with filter change. I know it sounds like too much, but it's right. I also change my filter everytime. The sight glass will show oil to the top.

the manual says the site glass should be half full or a little higher. all full is to much!

Mine is full, Even after I got it from the dealer from the first and second service.
