On the oil change with filter change add 1.25 quarts. Fire it up (level ground) and let it idle for 2 minutes dont rev it broom broom broom let it idle. Kill the engine. Wait like 25 seconds, unscrew the dipstick, wipe it clean, insert it without screwing it, pull out and look at the level, if it is low add some VERY SLOWLY as the oil level rises faster when it is almost full and check again .

It takes 1.53 quarts WITH oil filter change.

It takes 1.48 quarts WITHOUT oil filter change.

I usually add 1.5qts.....Don't forget to drain your oil from your front and rear oil drain bolts!

How often do you guys change out the copper gaskets in the 2 drain plug bolts? Every other change? Always? Or never if no seepage...

Any non oem replacements i can buy in bulk?

What he said. Do not exceed 14 ft/lbs when tightening your drain bolts. 7.2 ft/lbs on your oil filter cover. Itís common. Donít be that guy that snaps the head off a bolt or strips out the threads and makes an oil change a nightmare.

Rocky Mountain sells an ATV oil change kit where you get the oil, a filter and a crush washer to replace the old one. Or you can just order them in bulk.
