Alt Cover Oil Question

Okay...I did 2 searches and came up with nothing, but I think this was discussed recently.

I am ready to change my alt cover and need to know if and how much oil is behind it. I will have help on hand tonight so I can lean the bike to the right if needed.

I appreciate any insight into this.

Yes: that's it; just a couple of tablespoons of oil in there...

I'm done and I don't think I even lost a full tablespoon. It would have been a piece of cake except the starter gear moved down to the right. I ended up having a relative help insert the pin through the starter gear while I rotated the engine like doing a valve check. used a little hondabond where the manual said to do so and all went together well.

All you have to do if the starter gear moves is rotate it back into position with your finger (meshed against the gears). You don't have to turn the motor over.
