  • 4.6L = 4.86 US quarts. I drain all 3 plugs, lets it sit for 10 minutes (drink a beer) replace with Purolator filter and 5 quarts of Rotella T6 Synthetic. No oil goes out of the stock filter, change it at the start of every season. The Beast loves it.

  • 4.7 qts. its in the manual

  • Rotella T6 synthetic and it takes 6qrts. If you change it cold it helps to not strip the plug out.

  • Kawa service manual states and other places:::: 4.8 Qtrs. .5.8 Qtrs. when engine is reassembled last but not least <<<FILL TO TOP FILL LINE ON DIP STICK>>>>>> = 6 QTS........

  • NEVER ON Vulcan 2000 REMOVE the clutch drain plug when engine is warm or hot the clutch housing has aluminum threads the drain plug is STEEL AT SOME POINT YOU WIL STRIP THE ALUMINUM THREADS IN THE CLUTCH HOUSING then you are in deep shit........I have repaired many and replaced many clutch covers. Very costly...

  • Why are you tampering with the clutch plug?

  • I've never done oil change on these so just asking before I open wrong bolts lol

  • Why are you NOT? Drain the oil in the clutch compartment ...DUH 4.7 Qts in the manual is WRONG lots of things are wron in the manual service or owners manual...

  • Clutch plug and oil are next to each other, now I'm not an engineer but dissimilar metals required measures suit for a mechanic, I've never messed with the side plug or mesch filters

  • Bare Carr...I did exactly what you are talking about...Except I had enough sense to stop when it started to give...Agree with you and all oil needs to be drained.
