Just changed the oil and filter on my 748, oil level is on full but when i start the bike it drops to minimum and then back to full when the engine is stopped. Is this normal?

Normal Behavior

When the engine is running, the oil pump is pumping oil throughout the engine. So the oil level drops.

When you shut off the engine. the oil that was circulating drains back into the crankcase. So the oil leve rises.
