If it is just barely I think you will be fine but I am sure Kevin will jump in.

Did you start it let it run then shut it off let it sit for a couple minutes then check it?

Start it let it run a couple then shut it down, wait a few and re-check it....sometimes have to let it run through the filter...How much did you put in it....? Check that against what your manual states on capacity....

I thought it takes 5 quarts. So you didn't shake the bike up and down for every drop of old oil to come out?

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.

O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

Ok - from the "did you plug it in?" help desk....

Are you checking the oil while the bike is upright and not on the side stand? That's how to check the oil in these bikes.

Sorry if it's obvious. Never appreciated that piece of engineering. Checking the oil shouldn't require two people, a center stand or a lift.
