oil level

What is the correct oil level in UL oil tank.
My dipstick has only two markings. "danger" in bottom end and "Refill" closer top.
No other markings.
Usually its good to have air space over oil level (in british bikes which I am more familiar to).
So how much over refill mark (or under filler hole) is good?
Service manual only says "more oil, better cooling..."

Re: oil level

At the refill line you can add a quart. You need to leave the level just below the return/vent line fittings.
