Should be fine.

The high and low levels should be marked on the sides of the sight glass.
They are just 2 little lines.
As long as you are in between them you should be ok.

Actually, as long as you can see any oil in the sight glass with the bike level (off the kick stand), then its ok.

If checking under different conditions (based on what I read)...

- Near the top line if the bike is cold
- Near the bottom line if the bike is warm
- Near the top line if the bike is on the center stand

But ditto to what Got2Go said ... the difference between bottom and top lines is less than 1/4 of a quart, so really anywhere along the sight glass is ok. But don't go way higher! Apparently Bad Things can happen (I can't remember exactly what).
