The bike needs to be recently run to check the oil level. The dipstick is way up on the frame that acts as the oil tank. It is not down on the case.
Correct, also a dry sump engine will not foam the oil as the crank is not splashing about in it.

The good thing is, your damn motor can't read. If it says oil on the container, it's pretty much OK to dump in there.... ED.
