Well, there seems to be a couple of ways to approach the Honda oil level situation...in the maintenance manual under specs, it says 3.2 quarts(US) of oil should put you at the full line, if you are changing the oil filter... I just changed my 2018 Foreman over to full synthetic oil and used the 3.2 quarts with a new filter. I checked it per the operatorís manual, where it gives you the minimum 3 minute run (warm) or the 5 to 10 minute run (cold). Then it says to let it sit for 2-3 minutes before you check the level in the sump. Mine checked out full to slightly over full. I'm happy with being slightly over full in this type oil system. So just make sure you drain all the old oil out and put in 3.2 quarts of new back in. Iím running Shell T6 5W40. I buy a gallon jug and use the sight gauge on the side to measure...
