Oil change

Oil change on my 990r.
The manuals all seem to to say 3.5 kg of oil. Surely that's supposed to say liters.
Also I can't find a torque setting for the bolts holding the oil filter cover on. Anyone know that?
Quite a bit of metal filings on plug at my 6k change, but oil looked clean.
Clarification wanted please.

Thumbs down kgs of oil????

here's a thread on the weight of oil;

i'd warm it up, drain the oil, put a new filter in it,
then put 2 1/2 liters of oil in it start it for 30 seconds, stop and top the oil level off

you can't be wrong that way
