The oil level is supposed to be in the middle of the hash marks, not the top. There have been several addendum's to the Star manuals for the 1600 & 1700 engines. There are many threads about the quirkiness of the oil quantities & checking the oil on our beloved Roadies. I suggest you GOOGLE "Too much OIL in Road Star", just for reference, but by all means put as much oil, of which ever brand you wish. It's your bike.
