The proper method is not covered in the FSM, and the owners manual is long gone I'm sure.

So.... Do I leave it on the kickstand to check oil levels? That's a lot of tilt, which will surely change the reading. Or do I somehow try to stand it up with one hand (or a friend more than likely) and try to check it level?

Hi, Do not leave it on the side stand, it will not give you the correct reading, you are right! Either get a friend to hold the bike upright or stand it against a wall, then you can hold it when inserting the CLEANED dip stick! do not screw it in to take the level, just leave it on the top, then read the level! Always check the oil when the engine is cold. Simple when you know how and use the recommended oil for the bike, it was borne pre synthetic keep it that way!
