The factory fill is 4.3 litres. Thats new empty lines...etc.
3.75 to 3.9 quarts is a normal drain.
Heres a link for the complete service manual on the VTX 1800C
It's a big download about 50MB in PDF format

NO WAY SHOULD YOU USE SYNTHETIC OIL IN YOUR BIKE.
Use 10w40 motor oil in the gear box. Don't use any synthetic oils, oil marked "EC", or oil with "special" additives. Stick with the major brands; Pennzoil, Quaker State, Mobil or Shell. If in a hot area like Texas or New Mexico go with 20w50.
This is from a Honda service manual. The bigger bikes like yours get the 10w40 or 10w50.
Can I get a “very helpful” rating on this answer? Thanks!

Testimonial: "Helpful: Pointed me in the right direction. Thanks"
I would run a can of Techron fuel system cleaner through it. May have sucked some debris out of the tank and into the carb (injector). Also if it has a fuel filter I think I would change it.
