Mine typically ends up about where the oil level is at the part of dipstick that just starts to get round. Maybe 1/8 to 1/4 inch over full. It will not hurt anything, the Rincon has a dry sump in the engine.
Some people overfill slightly saying it shifts better. Personally, I just do it for convenience. In 13,000 miles it has done no harm.
A tip I will offer and I do not see discussed much lately, is to elevate the front wheels on car ramps or something, so they are about 12 inches above the rear wheels. When you do an oil drain, you will get 4 quarts out instead of just 3. I think somehow this causes the torque converter to drain. Put the bike back on level ground when filling.
