Question Oil Change Kit

Please forgive me if someone already covered this, but what are the two O rings for and the two different size washers for in the Victory oil change kit? I know one of the new washers goes on your plug before you reinstall it, but what is the rest of the stuff for? Sorry about the dumb question but I would rather ask then assume...

The oil change kit has parts for multiple bikes.
Some bikes use 6 quarts of oil, some use 4.5.

Check your manual for the correct info on what you're supposed to use.

You don't actually need to change the copper washers every time. A lot of folks go many oil changes before changing a single washer. Best thing to do is reuse the washer and if it leaks; change it. It's very simple thing to pull the plug, put your finger over the hole, change the washer, and re-insert the plug. Do this when the bike's cold though. It's not a bad idea to get one of the magnetic oil plugs somewhere along the way too. Witchdoctors is a good source. Same with Noemtz.

Witch bike use 6 quarts

Make sure you check the oil with the bike straight up and down. If you need to put it on a 2x4
