SOURCE: Oil level above full line
It's quite possible that when you fill the motor you are checking the oil level shortly thereafter, i.e. within 10 minutes, or you are filling the oil and checking what the level is BEFORE starting the motor (in this case the oil has not had chance to circulate and drain back in to the sump). Once the bike stands for an extended period (a couple of hours or overnight) you will find that the oil has drained from the head of the motor, and other places, back into the sump and therefore shows at a higher level in the sight gauge.

new engines burn oil until the rings wear in, if you were riding it hard and never noticed oil gone , possible damage. i would top up oil and keep and eye. if its still under warranty i would suggest dealer look at it

Replace standard rings with GTS1000 rings . I had Fzr1000 with same problem , at 187000 kms I pulled the barrels off and found no hone left , it was a smooth bore . Also replaced valve guide seals at this time also . Oil consumption dropped from 1 litre per 1000kms to 1 litre per 8000kms. Bike has now done 308000kms and still uses oil at the rate of 1 litre per 4000kms .

On your '93 model, the crankcase vent is down low on the engine behind the oil pump and it runs up to the air filter through a metal and rubber hose. I don't know how many miles you have on your engine but it you're getting any blow-by on the rings, this will increase the pressure in the crankcase. Most people simply re-route the crankcase breather underneath the bike and plug the hole on the backside of the air filter. Replace the metal line with a rubber hose and put a small filter in the end of the hose. Route the hose back behind the transmission and attach it to the transmission mounting plate just in front of the rear wheel.
This was the way the older Shovelheads were done from the factory for years until the EPA made them start running the crankcase vented air through the engine. In 1994, Harley went to the "head breather" system and moved the crankcase vents to the heads. Still, the oil mist in the vented air builds up in the air cleaner on these models as well.
