Why don't you use the sight-glass on the right side of the engine for getting your oil level correct? Personally, with the Wee, I like to add fresh oil to the filter before installation so that I can avoid low oil pressure upon start-up. There has been some discussion about doing this but it seems like a good idea and can't hurt.
I always add oil to the filter on both bikes and cars/trucks and yes the manual is correct.
