    I doubt you will find one as they change just about yearly

    3/1/1 is fairly accurate. I only use a little over 3/4 of a quart in my primary. You want just enough in there to lube the clutch/chain. To much oil in the primary can cause trouble finding neutral.
    My oil tank on my softail only holds about 2 quarts after draining. But i don't go real in depth making sure i've drained _ALL_ the oil. I change it often enough its usually fairly clean to begin with. I'm more religious about changing oil filters.
