I checked the oil as usual ran the engine for 5 mins then left to stand for 5 mins, the oil was a good 2-3 inches (90mm) above the top of the flat part of the gauge. Am i checking the oil right, do i need to take some out and will it of damaged my bike.
Last but not least should the oil be in the middle of the flat part of the dip stick and should you screw the dip stick in or just rest it on top while taking the reading..
Thanks a Lot.......

It takes 1.7 quarts to fill the bike after an oil change and filter cleaning.
If you check it after the bike has at a while, it'll read low. That's because all the oil has drained back into the crankcase.
Of course you wouldn't be the first TT'er to overfill
