Question 2001 KTM Adventure 640

Changed the oil last night and put the recommended 1.9 liters of oil.

It's way above the sight glass on the side of the engine.

When the engine was rebuilt I put the new clutch cover with oil window on her.

What is the recommended oil capacity for a 2001? Did full filter change as well because she has 600 miles on the new rebuild.

The magnets weren't as bad as before the rebuild but not as good as what I have seen on others. She is still getting broke in so I won't worry till perhaps the next oil change?!?

I will take my syringe and suck out the oil to get the proper level. I just think it's stupid to waste $18 a quart oil!

Previous owner never gave me the proper owners manual. Will have to order a new one.
