You wouldn't happen to be "Stikman" would you? If so you might remember me. I was a pro mountain bike racer for a while (cross-country).After reading your posts, it sounds like I'm even more of a noob than you when it comes to motos. By the way, welcome to the Husky gang. I've got an '06 TE 610.
For what it's worth; On my '06 TE610, once oil has stopped draining with bike in upright position, leaning the bike over as far as I can each way and returning to upright results in much more oil draining out. Even more will drain if this is repeated a few times. Perhaps this technique could bring oil amounts closer to what the manual states. Mine was pretty much dead on at 1.9 quarts for oil replacement only.
