Stand the bike upright on level ground and fill the carc unit until the oil is at the bottom of the threaded fill hole.
Under filling is not ideal and over fill could result in oil escaping from the breather cap.
Factory manual recommends an 80/90 GL4. Gut instinct would usually point towards a GL5 grade for a bevel drive.
In the UK we are able to get 80/90 GL4/5. This obviously covers all possibilities.
That reminds me of a question I had. When I last changed my oil I did exactly that. After filling to the bottom of the threads, I was looking up torque specs, and setting up the wrench when suddenly, oil started over flowing out the fill port. It eventually stopped but I wondered how on earth I got more oil in and then it took a minute or so to equalize out?

That would do it. It's a viscosity & friction thing (technical term).
And of course Brits have their own version of almost everything. The bottom right corner of their island realm is just filled with people who prefer their beer warm. What else could be expected.
Was down in Mexico at the Spag recently and was again reminded that senses of humour don't seem to travel well across borders - any borders. And it was also once more noted that Mexicans generally seem to have a built-in reluctance to cross the Murray. Can't figure that one out either.
