To properly measure oil level, you must run the engine till hot, turn it off and let sit for one or two minutes, then check the dipstick. Level will be higher under these conditions than it will be when cold.

The important thing is just to not let the tank run dry.

Absolute level is not nearly as important in these bikes with a dry sump as it is in an auto engine, where cylinders and other components are be lubricated by splash from the crank hitting oil in the full oil pan.
