Question about Suzuki Motorcycles
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

There is a manual from 89 - 99, a 91 one in German, and a 92 manual. Take your pick, they are all free: http://www.carlsalter.com/motorcycle-manuals.asp
