Remove the bars
With the bike supported, unscrew the fork caps.
Set the bike on the ground, allowing the forks to compress. The forks will bottom out and the springs and damper rods will extend out the top of the fork tube.
Disconnect the fork caps from the damper rods, and remove the springs. Allow the rods to compress fully
Measure the oil level.
Alternatively, you can leave the bars on and remove the forks to do this.
Personally, unless the leak was very significant, I would not be too concerned about it.
