@ Tri750

How high do you set it at PDI? Just add a preset amount?

On initial fill,  WITH FULL SYN OIL, just to where the oil is visible in the glass. After test ride and a 5 minute rest, it usually crawls up to between 1/4 and 1/2 up the glass.
During oil change, with soaking the filter and rocking, we bill out between 1.4 and 1.7qt,. of FULL SYN. OIL. Each bike takes a slightly different amount.
Current bikes:
'71 BMW R75/5 racer
'73 Kaw Z1 racer
'77 Tri 750 Bonneville
'99 BMW R1100RT
