Hi & welcome.

The oil level must be checked while on the side stand, seems strange I know but it is correct.

Seems like yours is overfilled & I'm sure someone will confirm.

Thanks for prompt replies will get a tube and syringe out and start losing some, going off to applecross tomorrow so wanted everything right, bought a litre of fresh top up oil prior to checking the level never dreamt it would have been overfilled by I assume the previous owner and not the last bike shop service, thanks again John
