I've noticed mentioned in threads like these that people check the oil with the bike on the center stand. This doesn't make any sense since the rear wheel is raised and the bike doesn't come with a center stand, therefore the site glass is designed to be read with both wheels on the ground, bike straight up at 90 degrees.
When my oil level is just below the top line in the site glass when the bike is straight up, the level will be above the entire glass when on the center stand. Only one of those readings is right, and it ain't the center stand reading.
