One thing I do is pre-oil the oil filter before intallation. I measure out 4 ounces of oil and pour that amount in to the filter and work it in to the media.
After the media has absorbed that amount of oil, I install the filter and subtract the 4 ounces from the total amount of oil required for an oil change.
I then fill the crankcase with the balance.
This reduces the amount of time for the system to pressurize after a change (I know, it's only a second or two decrease in pressurization time, but these machines are not cheap). I change oil every 500 miles, too. Anal? Yes. Super long engine life? Yes. Diminished returns because of frequency of "running dry" after engine start up? Perhaps. My bike, my money, my illness.....
