Your title description says 2003. Is your bike a 2003 or a 1996? If your bike does not have a dipstick on the filler, there may be a sight glass on the crankcase. If this is the case, the sight glass will be low on the right side of the crankcase. In order to ge an accurate estimate of your oil level, the bike must be level, not on the side stand.
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.
your cycle is quite different from a car in that the engine and trans(gears) are combined..so the same fluid lubricates and cools the bike....
being a v-twinn there are good oils out there today and much more inexpensive than before...
in fact many local auto stores and even discount stores have cycle oil...just make certain you get a quality brand like: valvoline,mobil,castrol and for your twinn i'd try a good 20w50.....check your manual for quantity and change the filter as well...some stores are even stocking cycle filters....
