    Bike must be vertical, you should see the oil when you remove the fill plug. If you fill it on the jiffy stand, she will leak. I like to fill it pretty much to the opening, just before it starts to spill out. They leak, so for me a little extra doesn't hurt. Check often.

    I didn't like to fill them that far either, Folks!

    It was such a pain to throw them on their side to drain it.

    With the bike level, use a flashlight and if you can just see oil at the bottom of the filler spout, you have enough oil in it.
    Any more and it will tend to push it out through the various seals.

    I like to fill them just to the point where I can see the oil through the plug hole when the bike is vertical
