I changed oil shortly out of the box, as it was already two years old, and then swapped the filter at 550 miles. A goodly amount of oil does drop, unlike other Stars. I filled the filter and let it sit, and I thought I was being quick; it felt like not much more than when I do it to my Road Star, but I lost enough oil to drop the level below the stick, even on it's side, cold. The manual states that basically, the tank gets narrow at the top, I think it reads, "...the level will rise more quickly as the tank is filled".
The oil light has not lit, and I have not warmed it yet, as I've been installing the auxiliary lights.
