Done. I poured 2.2L, And now the oil level is Okay. But I don’t know why they did not mention that quantity in the owner manual!!!
Actually, I rode the ATV for 40 hours with low level of oil "1.85L".So I don't know if that will affect on the engine in the future?

1.85 isn't crazy low, you should be fine.

Your motor should be OK. It works as a dry sump, when running, the oil in the motor is all pumped in the tank. Then circulated thry the motor. As long as there is oil in the tank, oil goes thru the motor.

My Owners manual says add to Oil Tank only, not crankcase because of the whole dry oil sump mechanism which I'll spare the details of... Do I agree with manual? No! I change my oil pretty much how Mad Dog took the time to post with excellent pics too, even though the manual makes no indication to put oil in crankcase.
My 2017 Raptor 700R Owners Manual specifically states after removing oil and tightening all the bolts: "Add 1.37 US qts through Oil Tank filler hole (Only There). Start engine, rev several times, turn it off, then gradually fill oil oil tank to correct level on dipstick."
No no no, do it the Mad Dog way... better for your engine's innards after an oil change to have oil in the crankcase for immediate lubrication. (I know how dry-sumps work differently)
Think of it this way: You drained oil out of the crankcase after ~20 +/-hrs riding it, so the engine naturally retained oil in crankcase as it was obviously engineered to retain oil in crankcase, so put some back there too after an oil change. Maybe Yamaha thinks we're just a bunch of dummies out here in good ole USA, and we'd be confused if we were told to put oil in 2 places instead of 1...

I'm a little confused on your posting. If your changing the oil, you should drain case and Reservoir tank and change filter. Once you do that, there is a couple ways to do this. One is put one quart in res tank and start the engine for 20 seconds. Then ad the other quart. Another is pull the hex clutch cover bolt and pour a quart in there and the other quart in res tank.

I put in two quarts total on a oil change and call it a day. If you jack up rear of bike, a little extra will run out. If that's the case, then I add 2 quarts plus an 1/8 .

Yep, drain the motor and the reservoir tank. Then put a 1qt in the tank, and 1qt in the motor. You're done, the level is inconstant because it self levels between the motor and tank. Just start it and ride, BRAAAAAAAAAAAPP!!

Drain your oil from the crankcase and reservoir and start over, as said, 2 quarts with filter replacement. 0.5 in crankcase and 1.5 in oil tank
