When I had my oilhead, I changed oil every 3000 miles, never filled the oil 
filter and always put in FOUR quarts of oil. (figured the 1 1/2 ounce extra 
wasn't gonna hurt anything).

I never ended up with oil in the air filter housing and I also never added 
any oil as long as there was ANY showing in the sight glass.
It never used any oil from the 10K mile mark to the 60K when I sold it.
