how much did you drain out?
should be somewhere between 3-4 quarts of oil. while filling hold the bike strait up and have someone check the sight glass

Use? It shouldn't burn any. Read the Manual. Should also be a sticker or something on the bike to say how much oil to fill. Look at the oil fill and sight glass.

More advice ....having the bike on a rear stand can give you a bad reading on the sight glass too. Also ....alot of bikes have free online service or owners manuals if you Goggle it.

Yeah check the manual for sure.

And when using the sight glass make sure its standing straight up and level.

Yeah, you should check the owner's manual. My 600 takes 2.2 quarts, but every bike is different.

My 650 twin takes two even. I thought most 600s were around 3 quarts or more? My 305 V8 only takes a little over 4.
