Ditto to Chris. Both the V92 Freedom motor and the Hammer take 4.5 qts. It can take 10 mins or so for it all to drain when warm, I wait for the occassional drip before replacing plug and filter.

Still draining the excess out bit by bit, but seems odd that it ended up that over full.
That doesn't seem right. Didn't lose count when filling?

My Freedom motor takes 6 qts. Must be the newer Freedom motors that take 4.5 qts.

The 92 ci engines are 6 qts. It may be over full before you start it. The oil filter is not full. What you could do is put 5 qts in start the bike and then top off. I think the 100 ci engines was when they went to 5qt crank case.

Oil change

The 92 inch motor had 6qts. 05 when 100inch came out they went to the 4.5 qurts. I use 4 1/2 qts. I fill the filler 1/2 not full or you will make a mess. The rest in crankcase. You should have no problem I don't.

I have the 100 ci motor. Ran into a few issues and ended up having to call a buddy over to hold the bike upright so I could fit the drain pan under the bike. Was in a bit if a hurry so I might not have let it drain completely. The engine was warm but I was probably closer to 5 minutes than 10. It was down to that tiny wispy stream... Didn't think that there would have been that much left in there. I have run the bike and filled the filter, and drained the filter a few times trying to get the excess out.

Interesting, my '02 V92C with the Freedom motor took 4.5 qts after being fully drained, filter off. Changed the oil 4 times. After running the engine it put the oil at the Full mark of the stick. I have no idea how you can get 6+ quarts in that engine. My '05 Hammer also takes 4.5 qts, I just changed it.

Here is what the 2002 V92C owner's manual spec page 133 says:
"Engine Oil 6 QT (5.7 ltr)"
on page 74 it says "Fill the crancase through the oil fill cap with 6 quarts (5.7 liters) of the proper grade and viscosity oil"

Here is what the 2005 Hammer owner's manual spec page 153 says:
"Engine Oil 5 Qt (4.75 L) (4.5 Qt at change)"
yet on page 83 it says "Fill the crancase through the oil fill cap with about 4 3/4 quarts (4.5 liters) of oil" obviously a discrepancy.

Regardless of this both engines took 4.5 Qts after being fully drained, new filter installed and run 2-3 minutes. The dip stick needs to be fully screwed in to get an accurate reading. Bottom line, feed it whatever is required to get it to the Full Mark on the stick.

Larry: I am not sure why it only took 4.5 qts. Maybe our stick is too long

Duh, sorry, I use the "Gallon" jug I (plus a quart) and when I re-read my post this AM it dawned on me it's a 5 qt jug so I've been using one of these plus a half qt, so 5.5 for mine. It makes me wonder why the Hammer Owners manual calls for 4.5 though. After the change and running the engine it still doesn't take another qt. Also makes me wonder why I'd post anything after tilting a few watching the Twins lose again

Paul, are you saying Sgt H's stick may be too short?

Paul left the door open, couldn't let well enough alone Mike Hope it clears quickly today and you can give your new oil a workout sometime this weekend.

My 2005 Vegas took 6 qts, it had the 92" motor. From what I understand, the 100" motors and up are 5 qt systems. 6 qts filled it to the full mark after start up.

Same here with my '02 V92. First couple of oil changes had me concerned about overfilling.
But now I add all 6qts. Drain the bottles completely overnight and add that to. Check the stick with the bike level.

Hard part is getting a little more ground clearance (safely) so that a drain pan that holds 6+qt will fit under the bike and you can still get a hand in to pull the plug and filter.

Correct oil data

I have a Victory bulletin that I will post when I make a copy, as I don't have it at home. I won't quote the bulletin because I don't have it in front of me. When I post a copy they can decide what their stick tells them and what the bulletin means to them. I know what I do when I service my personal bike and company/customer bikes. 92 cubic inch takes 5.5 quarts and 100 and 106 cubic inch takes 4.5 quarts. Lee
