    Didn't go too bad, rolled the V7 onto my trusty Harbor Freight lift table late yesterday afternoon, dumped the sump oil and removed the old filter.

    Then I left it on the lift and walked away from it, letting the old oil drip out all night.

    I went to the nearby Dollar General store and bought a clear plastic jug that was marked in milliliters in 500 ml increments up to 4000 ml.

    I filled the jug up to the 2000 ml mark...

    ...and using a long-spout funnel, (slowly) poured it into the engine.

    I didn't bother messing around with the dipstick, knowing the prescribed 2000 ml went into the motor.

    I ran it 20 miles immediately after the change, and the bike didn't leak or blow up, so I figure things are good.

    If you got this far, thanks for your patience.

    Nice! I can't wait to get tools for my bike to start doing my own work. Mine are such a hodge podge of random stuff that even changing a light bulb is difficult. Ha! But soon enough that won't be the case.

    That's the total capacity, you might have overfilled it. I recommend you check your level with the dipstick, otherwise expect some oil in your air filter.
