Mate, from personal experience, I can tell you that filling the oil to the mark on the sightglass while the bike's on the centrestand will not cause all the oil to come out. All it did was saturate the air filter and blow Sh*tloads of smoke & miss under load. Oil was still overfull when I got home after a 200 odd klm return leg of my trip. So it must be something else.
