Checking the Oil level on 660

This has always had me wondering.
When I check the oil level first I warm up the motor then let is sit off for a couple of minutes and then remove the dipstick, clean it and then put it back in but I don't thread it in the hole.
How do you check it and am I actually adding too much oil. The owners manual doesn't really say which way either. (at least I didn't find it in there)
I have the siphon break and full K&N intake so I'm not worried about flooding the air box with excess oil, and It doesn't seem to blow much from the little filter.

Just curious

Not sure if its in the owners manual, but the service manual for my 06 660, on page 3-13 says do not screw the dipstick in when checking the oil level.
