You don't want to go by what you see, you want to go by volume. I think your bike holds 1.5 qts.

Never use the dipstick for anything but checking levels down the road.

Always measure the oil going in, and always remove all plugs and dip sticks when draining.

If you over fill it, it will puke the excess out the vent hose.  Done it on both of mine.
