What did I do wrong?

I drain the oil and dump in 1.25L of Castrol GPS. Still not on the stick. I slowly add the remaining Litre of oil, only to have the oil barely show up on the dipstick.
None of its running out on the ground.... where is all this oil going?

Narf on my part.
You have so grossly overfilled the bike with two liters you could cause damage. You are going to start blowing oil out of the breather into the air box if you don't pop a seal before. Drain all the oil out and only put 1 liter (max) back in (assuming you drained the filter cavity too), otherwise a little less (1 quart).

So when does the oil level *ever* show up on the dip stick?
And the book quoted 1.25Litres for an oil change +filter
