Fresh oil is difficult to see on the stick.  Have good lighting.  Start and warm up engine.  Park on level ground.  Remove dipstick.  Wipe dipstick off.  Hold the bike level and insert dipstick.  Do not screw in.  Remove dipstick and check oil level.  With new oil you may have to do this more than once to see it.  If you're in doubt, the oil level check bolt is on the lower right of the engine.  If you haven't gotten a maintenance manual, do so.  Clymer book does fine for me.
