Hard to start,but its been outside without protection an its been down to 10 degrees
Any unleaded fuel will be fine and yes it should be vertical to check the oil level.

Any changes you make to the exhaust system will alter the sound the bike produces. The more you cut baffles,and open up the exhaust, the louder it will get. What you do alter to a greater extent,is the state of tune of the motorcycle. Any changes to exhaust or inlet plumbing will require a retune of the engine to suit the modifications. This can be subtle to dramatic. Opening up exhausts can often rob low end power where exhaust port scavaging is relient on some back pressure for maximum effect.
Best to work directly with an engine tuner to do the mods that are known you can get away with, or buy aftermarket prebuilt pipes that have a known previously tested state of tune. Nothing worse than doing something, that then costs money to put back the way it was on finding out it didnt work as well as was hoped.. Hope this has helped you steer your custom mods a little. I can say with certainty, that I have ventured to do what you are doing many times in the past, and it has always cost me more money in tuning and... and well more parts :) Cheers

Yes you do check the oil level when the bike is straight up and down to the ground. start the bike let it run for 3- 5 min shut it off. let it stand for 3-5 min get the bike is straight up and down. then check the motor oil level.

You cannot see the oil level in the window? you may be looking through the oil and it is over filled i don't know witch side your oil lever inspection window is, best thing to do is have some one help you tilt the bike to the opposite side while you watch use a flashlight if needed until you can see the oil level line you may be loosing oil that is over filled. check the oil level with the bike up and level
Hope this helps you out.
