My 1991 FSM says 28 ounces in one section, 32 in another, and 40 in another (does no one proof read?). I just use one quart. Have no use for 4 oz of spare oil. 32 oz brings it right to the weep hole on the back of primary, so that's what I use.

My 2013 Owner's manual shows:
Transmission (approximate) 1.0 qt 0.95 L

Service manual says (with the bike upright)
Add 1.00 qt (0.95 L) of FORMULA+
TRANSMISSION AND PRIMARY CHAINCASE LUBRICANT
through clutch inspection cover opening. Verify
that lubricant level is even with bottom of clutch diaphragm
spring.

The specifications sections shows 1 quart.

https://twinpower-usa.com/oil-and-fi...l-filters.html Supposed to be rated for 10 Microns on the Newer style. Older is 20.

When I did mine, It was barely dripping when I put the plug back in.
