crank her up and let her get warm, turn it off, unscrew dip stick and clean it. screw dipstick back in and check the level. this is the best way to check because the bike is at or close to the temp at which it'll be operating and needing the most lubrication.
Nice, thanks. I just finished my first oil change on the R6. Very easy, since all you have to remove is the bottom fairings and the filter isn't lodged in between the headers like my last two Suzuki's. That was always a b--ch.
