Instructions from the manual:
1. Stand the machine on a level surface
2. Idle the engine for more than 3 minutes while keeping the machine upright. Then stop the engine and inspect the oil level.
3. Remove the oil tank cap (dip stick)
4. Oil level should be between the max and min marks (within the hash marks).
Note: Do not screw the oil tank cap into the oil tank, insert lightly.
In the oil change instructions it also mentions that you should loosen the oil gallery bolt at the top of the head on the right side to cause a slight leak to check oil flow. if it does not start to leak in the first minute shut the engine off to keep it from seizing. If it starts to leak, tighten it to 10Nm.
