Did you drain the oil out of both drain plugs? The engine should have about 1/2 liter and the oil tank should have about 1/2 liter.

We need more information. I'm assuming you have changed the oil on this bike before without any problem. Do you see any leaks? Was there excessive smoke from the exhaust?
