Default Raptor oil level check

My owners manual says the motor takes 2 quarts to fill. After I change my oil and add 2 quarts of oil then I check the oil level and it is always very low, at least needing another half a quart. I follow the Owners manual and it says to warm the engine up to normal operating level then to shut off engine and let oil seattle for a few minutes then check oil. Is it a misprint in the manual and the raptor actually takes 2-1/2 to 3 quarts of oil? Am I checking the oil wrong? I don't want to overfill it because that is just as bad as under filling it. So what is the deal?

yes it takes not quite 2 1/2 quarts on an oil change with filter change. it just barely under 2 1/2 quarts. remember warm the bike up and when checking the oil dont screw the dipstick in the oil tank just stick it in there without screwing it in. hope that helps.

Mine always takes a little more than 2 quarts as well. The first time or two I thought something was wrong too, but that is just the way it turns out everytime (2 - 2 1/2).

when I first got my Raptor and changed the oil i also had weird oil
readings the very best way to get a good and consiste reading is to check
after it has been rode hard or for a extended time . the tank it self is
just a holding tank for the oil at different times you will get a different readings because there is always oil in the motor some times more some times less do to the oil pump ciruclating the oil thourgh the system. and no having a little more oil in it will not hurt it just as i said the tanks is just a holding tank. I mean the only way you could have to much is if you overfill the tank to the point of it runing over. this is the same basic theroy as race cars use. now if you had all the oil in the crankcase this would not be good but with the tank it recirults its self over and over
so in theroy a little more oil would be good. Anyway hope some of this babble helps!
