You wont need to drain the oil to inspect the filter. there is only 1/2 a cup full in the housing.
Rest bike on the side stand, remove RH faring and belly pan, 4 bolts for the filter cover, have a catch pan under the housing to catch any dribbles.

That oil is fine, and won't cause any problems, though I prefer 10W-30 (Rotella T5) for the CBR. As noted, no need to drain all the oil or replace it. Just make sure it's always up to the proper level. That's critical with the CBR.

Pull the oil filter cover and have a look. If it's like my CRF150R filter it will say "This side out" or something on the filter. Hopefully it's in correctly and you can check that off the list.

Is the amount of oil that comes out when I remove the filter enough that I need to add new oil in there?

Most likely, but I would plan on having some of the correct oil on hand anyway.

I don't know, if he rode the bike every day for two weeks I doubt it could be the oil filter. Wouldn't that have shot the engine by now?

Rattles that stop after a short period of running are usually heat/expansion related, so piston slap maybe?

That's probably true. I don't think it will run that long if it's not correctly installed.

I'd just want to know for sure, since he said it started after the oil change.

I checked the oil filter; it was installed correctly. Is the valve clearance the next thing to check?

Wouldn't hurt to check it, but the 600-mile valve check was mostly needed on 1st year models and even on those many times they were found to be in spec with no adjustment needed. That was the case on my 2011. The manufacturing problem that caused some valves to need adjustment after 600 miles was addressed in later models from info I've seen here on the forum. Then again you don't know how the previous owner rode it, so it would be good to do for peace of mind if nothing else.

I bought this bike new in 2012 so there's no previous owner. I did have the valve clearance checked at 600 miles but no adjusted was needed. What kind of riding causes the valves to drift? I have about 12K miles on it.
