Question about Oil Filter Relocation

Hello everyone! I'm about to put my oil filter relocation kit on and I'm wondering if I need to increase the amount of oil I put into the bike to make up for the extra space? Such as the hoses and the area not taken up by the old filter in the housing?

Thanks for any info you can give!

There is a site glass that you should be using to check oil level. Put in a little over 2.5 qts and start the bike for a minutes then add oil until it's barely above the lowest mark on the site glass. Then you'll know if you have the right amount.

Thank you, I was able to get the relocation kit installed today and able to get the oil to a good level. I guess I get so caught up in the numbers I forget to use my head.
