not seeing the oil at idle is normal, if you look closely, you'll probably see it splashing if you look through the bottom of the window.
to properly check the oil, let it sit for a few minutes after running to allow the oil to drain back down, or better yet check first thing in the morning. stand the bike up until it balances, use your leg next to the bike to stabilize it and check the window. you want to keep it right at the top
