Yes. Manual says 3.6 but it will vary coz a little oil always remains behind and the engine always has sludge. Start with 3.4 if ur changing filters and 3.2 when ur not changing filters. Then add little by little till you reach full mark

I juz did an oil change and strangely the bike took 3900 ml...... Maybe coz i flushed the bike with wynns before the oil change. Sludge gone. I added 3400 ml and kept adding 100 ml till i reached the full line.

I would put in the 3200 ml and then check the window while using a bubble level accross the seat of the bike or under the frame. That way you know what 'FULL' looks like.
