I just changed the oil in my 04 Retro, Mobil 1, 4T 10-40, with a NAPA Gold 1356 filter. Book says 3.9 qts. With bike up stright, oil wont even show on the dipstick. Don't want to over fill, so figured I would see where its at on the dipstick when the bike is on the side stand, and just check that way all the time. Anyone else run into this?

Maybe a dumb question but, did you warm it up and give it a few minutes to drain before checking it? If you put in 4 qts., don't add any more!

yep

No question is dumb. Yep, warmed her up, shut her down, waited about 6-8 minutes and checked, oil wasn't even touching the tip.
