Why did you get a new dipstick, is this some warranty thing?
I think I would ride it for 10 miles or so. Keep it in netural and let it idle for a minute then shut it down. ANd check quickly. If its more than a few mm above the top line,
then the dipstick is wrong for the bike,
or it was overfilled.
On my 07 the manual says only to dip the stick not screw it back in when checking, not sure if that would make the difference....
