2015 must be perfectly balanced left to right, and front to back, to get accurate reading. When I have the bike on stands, the rear wheel is a couple of inches higher than the front, and sight glass shows below low level mark. With the bike off the stands, and perfectly level, sight glass shows top mark. Like cuckoo, I use just a little over 2 quarts at oil change. I suspect you have added too much oil. When I do an oil change, I use a level on the handlebars to ensure an accurate reading. Small variations have a large effect on readings. Too much oil is bad for the bike.
