    If you see oil in the oil tank at the bottom then its full most I could get in is 2.75 quarts with filter.You are talking about engine oil correct?

    If you have to much oil it will puke through the breather. I can only put 3 in my 04. I can put more but it will puke bad.

    05 chopper has a double 90 at the top of the tank, I keep it just to where I can see it at the middle if the 90. Not sure what it comes to exactly in QT's..
