a little confused

well im new here, and i just picked up a ltf250y from a friend of mine. the bike sat outside without being run for about 5 years, i got it here then unlocked the motor. but my question is about the oil, i want to change it but im confused about how much it takes. some places say it takes 3.8quarts. is that how much it should have? also is the engine oil, the transmission and rear differential all the same sump? or is the motor sump seperate from the rest of the drivetrain? like is that 3.8 quarts for the engine trans and rear end? i hope im making it clear enough.

On the side of the case , I cannot remember which side sorry but I think it is the side with the sight glass, there should be a stamp that has the fluid capacity in ML, 946.35 is 1 quart so if yours says 3500ML then it will hold 3.6984 quarts. I hope that helps out.

When doing oil changes i always use the sight glass method. I find it easier and there is no chance of overfilling or underfilling. When doing it this way first level the atv as much as possible. Once level, drain your oil and replace the oil filter. Once all your oil has drained and your filter has been replaced, re-insert the drain plug and fill your atv with the appropriate oil. (Usually 10W40 Motorcycle Oil) Fill it until it is in between the lines on the sight glass then re-insert your fill plug and start the atv and let it run about 2 -3 minutes to let the oil circulate properly through the filter. After your 2-3 minutes are up turn the atv off and top off the the oil until it is back in between the lines on the sight glass and your done. Just another way of doing an oil change without having to figured out the exact amount you need.
