Has Anyone Ever Measured...

...how much oil it takes to fill from the bottom hash mark of the dipstick to the top hash mark?

I'm only curious as my dipstick O-ring allows oil to seep onto the case cover and I have been checking it/topping off as such. I've never let it get that low (re: down to or below the bottom mark) but this just got me curious as to how much of the 1.5qt capacity this small distance on the dipstick represents.

(Yes, I will be replacing the O-ring eventually...I just need a new chain & sprockets along with tires and I will get to that small potato when I tackle the bigger stuff)

"Ride Safe, Chop Safer" Motorcycles are not unsafe. However; they are extremely unforgiving of inattention, incompetence, ignorance, and stupidity.
Dismantling, sawzalling, and rattle canning does not make a bobber.
Those are STEPS toward customizing, not customizing unto itself.
