Make sure you are checking your oil correctly:
Put bike on level ground, start cold engine and let it idle for five minutes, check oil immediately! Don't screw the dip stick into oil tank. Just set it on the threads.Note: DO NOT rev or blip the throttle during the five minutes. This could cause you to get an inaccurate reading. Idle only no throttle.

in the manual it says to check the oil with out starting the engine, if its low then check the crankcase. then if you have oil then let it idle then turn it off for 2 or 3 min and check it. is it really necessary to check the crankcase if its low when u check it without leting it idle first. only reason i ask is because i checked mine and it was at the low mark. then i let it idle, checked it immediatly, and waited 2 min checked it again and it said it was good. so i guess im good if i let it idle then check it and its ok? even though it said it was low when it was just siting, before i let it idle.
Yes if it's full after you've let it idle for 5 minutes or so then it's good!
