Checking oil ?

I have an 08 wr450. Should i check the oil with it on the kick stand or on a center stand?

The bike should be standing vertical. I typically just lean the bike up from the kick stand while I test the oil level.

I generally don't use a bike stand since I have to take off the skid plate anyway, but I wouldn't expect it to be a problem.

Level ground, no stand

Run the motor till hot, shut it off, wait 1 min, then check the oil level.
