What kind of oil is recommended for a 2002 Honda VT 1100 Shadow

Use only a JASO MA certified motorcycle oil. Automotive oil uses different additives and will shorten the life of your wet clutch and transmission gears. Shell Rotella T Synthetic (15w-40 about $22) and Shell Rotella standard oil ($12 a gallon) for diesel engines , both are JASO MA rated for motorcycles.10w-40 oil is good for cold climate. 20w-50 for hot climate/touring. Synthetic oil will make your cycle run cooler and shift easier. For the engine you will probably need four quarts of oil, a spin on filter,and a drain plug washer . Pour in three quarts and check the oil level by placing your motorcycle on the center standard looking at looking at the dip stick. Run the motor and top up as needed.
If changing the oil filter you will have to run the motor to get an accurate oil level reading.
Your final drive uses 80/90 hypoid gear oil. Synthetic hypoid oil will reduce friction and make your final drive run cooler.

I have a 2002 Honda VT 1100 C2 Sabre and I just flushed all of the oil out of the pan and also changed out the filter. How many liters of motor oil do I have to put back into the reservois?

I have checked my service manual and it does not state quantities just top up the oil until the glass level is up to the mark. Don't forget the oil filter will take a little extra oil.
