How many quarts of oil for 01r6?

I called dealer and they told me 3 quarts with a filter change. So thats what I put it a few days ago. Just went to check it and oil started pouring out of my dipstick when I unscrewed it. Obviously that is too much oil. Also I let it drain quite a while before I put the plug back in so I know it was mostly all out. ALSO this i my first oil change for the bike and the old oil from the previos owner was pretty dirty. Should I change it in a few weeks since the old oil was so dirty or does it not matter

What does your owners manual say?

Here's the 2001 R6 pdf manual.

It says -

Without oil filter replacement - 2.5L or 2.64 US quarts
With oil filter replacement - 2.7L or 2.85 US quarts
Total amount (dry engine) - 3.5L or 3.7 US quarts

:eek:nfloorNO, It was not running actually was sitting for about 2 hrs. Not sure what the deal is...
Hey, welcome to SBN! You're welcome for that owners manual that you couldn't find on your own. And you don't have to change your oil again until it's time. :twofinger
