It takes 3.7 quarts. Please put the correct oil for the conditions of your riding. In Alaska, use 10-30W oil for the climate is cool. If you live in Arizonia, please put 10- 40W or 20-50W because of the intense heat down there. It is better to have a little thicker oil in your engine than to lite of oil for the protection it needs.

My book says 3.7 with filter. 3.5 oil only use 10/40 motorcycle oil. Do not use car oil or you could burn up the clutch

drive shaft uses hypoid 80 ,, 4.4oz.

I have 04 Sabre

Every motorcycle is different, and the viscosity or thickness is more like a lawn mower or boat engine, My Harley Heritage Softail takes as much as it needs, Why, cause Harlies are as temperamental as women pmsing

How many quarts of engine oil holds 06 honda shadow 1100


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.

What is the correct oil capacity for this motorcycle? 1100cc


Use 20w40 SF or SG motor oil in the gear box, 20w50 in hot states like Texas. 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. Without filter change it takes 3.1 quarts. With filter change it takes 3.3 quarts.
