How much comes out it should have a little dip stick, if not measure how much you drain you might have to tip it so it comes out the filler hole

Oil change intervals for motorcycles depend a great deal on your riding conditions and riding style. For lower-revving street bikes, I often change my oil about every 2000 miles (~3200 km). However, someone with a sport bike who regularly revs their engine closer to the redline, I would suggest a more frequent change interval. Off-road / dirt bikes should have their oil changed sooner because of the dusty conditions. The oil is still full of lubricants, but it is contaminated with dust and dirt that clogs the filter and eventually goes right into the engine, increasing wear. I can't offer much guidance for dirt bike oil change intervals.

Want to disassemble my pulsar engine and clean it.. but I dont know how to do it.. can you tell me how can I learn it..

DON"T DISASSEMBLE THE ENGINE. All that is needed to keep the inside of the engine clean is regular oil changes. Change the oil every 3000 miles. 10w40 motor oil is what goes in the gearbox. NEVER use synthetic lubricants. They can mess up the clutch.

How often do u need to service wr 450 r they good for dual purpose

The main thing to remember is oil is cheaper than metal.Regular oil and filter changes is a must.6 months or about 5000 kms.This is if you DON"T take it offroad.Change them more often if you do.Air filter is the same.The valves also need adjusting around the same and most times this is a shop job unless you are pretty handy with the tools and have the correct gear.In built-up traffic,they can overheat if you are stopped for any length of timeOther than that,they are a great bike to ride.(A bit tricky in the wet).Hope this helps you
