My local kawi dealer told me it should take 3.2 quarts, so I bought 4. It took the entire 4 quarts and the sight glass was a little lower than half way full. Google search says 4.2 quarts, another .2 of a quart had the level perfect. The owners manual would have come in handy.

Was the bike on the side stand?

Of course I'm generalizing from a single example here, but everyone does that. At least I do.

There's a plate on the side of the bike right by the sight glass that says how much oil to use. It's like 3.2 without changing the filter and 3.6 with a filter change, or something like that

OEM pads from a dealer are about $45-50 per caliper. That's $135 for all 3 calipers

Aftermarket, quality pads are about the same though a bit cheaper for the rear.

When I just did mine with a filter it took 4. Looks good in the sight glass on my rear stand.

i'd like to think i was very helpful

and i was pointing out that you SAID you didn't even try to haul ass on the bike, when before that, you admitted you did! just be honest, man. yeah we all do it. of course. but we're also A trying to keep you safe because a noob should be learning how to ride the thing respectably and B.. i and GTS are like fuckin private eyes with this shit. santa. a lie detector. we will sniff out and expose bullshit in .000328 seconds. lol if you're gonna say you wanna learn how to speedshift at WOT, then maybe you shouldn't include that you're a new rider. or, if you state you didn't try it, maybe you shouldn't state ya just tried it anyway.

thus the sour taste in the mouths of many here.
i honestly couldnt give two fucks. wrap yourself around a telephone pole. turn into a pro-level AMA racer. retire. convert to dirtbikes. doesnt mater to me one bit. i'd just PREFER if you're potentially gonna be on the same streets as me, you know what you're doing so i don't have to whip your ass on the side of the road for almost clipping me on a flyby.

and as pretty much everyone said.. its practice. you learn where the torque builds and decays along the rev range and you use that as effectively as possible. every bike is different.

You need to stop hating on my thread dude, Hong Kong or kawi, all pads will fade..
Aftermarket pads are cheaper and better. Did you buy 2 sets for the front? You over paid for the oil and filter to by about $25.

You need to stop being stupid before you kill yourself and/or someone else.

You need two sets for the front... and the front use one pad per piston. Typically they're 50-60 a set here. Do you not find it odd that you're spending substantially more on rears than fronts?

Of course I'm generalizing from a single example here, but everyone does that. At least I do.
