Default Pull filter - how much oil will I lose?

Changing my CCT back to OEM exhaust headers and need to pull the oil filter.
How much oil will I lose when I pull it? WD video says just a couple TBS but I don't know if his oil was already drained.

That's right -- maybe a few tablespoons, at most. I did it in late December. My bike was on a level floor, on its side stand.

Bike I bought had a ghetto 2 in 1 mod of OEM where crossover tube was cut and capped and right muffler was completely hollowed.

What a godawful racket. I don't want to pull my front header tube so goal is to install the crossover section with front tube in place = have to pull the filter.

Might not work, but gonna try.

i pulled my complete system, didnt touch the filter, but you may want to loosen the front headpipe, i couldnt quite get the rear pipe off till i loosened it up, it helped. good luck the connection at the front rear headpipe was a pain! shoot a little wd or something on it and lots of wiggling!!

When I pulled my stock pipes off. I took the filter off. It only looses a little oil and I makes life much easier. It only takes a second to pull the filter. It wasn't even enough lost to register on the dipstick. To me working on that exhaust is enough of a hassle to have to work around the filter.

Not done with the job yet, but the (2nd hand) replacement center section with crossover is bolted in place. Didn't have to loosen the front flange bolts. It *just* slid into place and had to have the wife do a bit of prying at one point but it's done.
I did apply a very thin film of moly-grease to the slip joints and things slid back together without much trouble.
