Drain the oil and put 750ml back into the gearbox. If your bike doesn't have a dipstick and you have good, clean oil in it, drain it into a plastic bowl then put it right back into the engine but measure it before you pour it back in. When you get 750ml in the box then look at the level in the box. That is the level to maintain.
Pleas rate this solution. Thanks!

32 to 1 gas and oil > Two Stroke Engine Oil ( not Motor oil ). This equals 4ounces oil per gallon of gas.
Use premium unleaded gas. No Ethanol gas.
10w40 motor oil for the gearbox. Stick with the major brands; Pennzoil, Quaker State, Mobil or Shell.
Please take a moment to rate this solution. Thanks Beetle100! :)

The bike has to be both level and vertical when you check it - not on the stand.
It would be good if someone can hold the bike up for you when you remove the filler plug (which has the oil level dipstick attached) from the cover on right side of engine, Or you may be able to sit on it , holding it upright with your legs and reach down with right hand to remove the filler cap/dipstick.
Wipe off the stick and re-insert it and screw it all way closed, then immediately remove it again. The oil level shoud be between the two indicator marks on the flat tip at the very end.
If bike is on side-stand you will see nothing on the stick - bike must be upright,
If you need to add any oil, use a funnel and put the oil in through the same hole the cap/dipstick goes into. Best use a motorcycle specific oil - automobile oils contain additives that can cause clutch performance issues

Just make the bike level and check it. It's actually better to check it after the engine has been off for ten minutes or so. This ensures that the oil has had time to drain back into the pan and is not circulating elsewhere in the system. That will help with obtaining an accurate reading

either get a bike lift or centre stand or lean the handlebar against a wall, you will find a spot where it is close to verticle.
leave the side stand down so it cant fall on you if it over balances away from the wall
