A question I have is; when I changed the oil after I got my machine I put two quarts in it and it burly registered on the sight glass. So today I put another quart in and when I got done with a 30 minute ride my fan was running and the sight glass has oil very near the upper notch (of the low and high notches). I'm thinking of draining and starting over. I did change the oil filter with the first change and I thing the filter absorbed a good amount. But with the oil (low) from the first fill the fan didn't run after I parked it. My air filter is a foam one, waiting on a real one, but I ran water over it to try to get some cleaning done. Could this cause a problem?

Did you have the bike upright when you checked the sightglass oil level?
Mine looks empty when on side stand, and 3/4 when upright.
Also I'd assume it will expand a little when hot.
