Oil sight glass on 94 VN 750

Well, I went about changing the oil on a newly aquired VN 750 as a matter of routine when aquiriing a used machine. Oil was indicating well above the sight glass so, I figured it was overfilled.
Put it on the center stand and chg'd the oil & filter. Put in a gallon of oil and ck'd the glass. -Overfilled?? Started it again and ck'd- barely on the bottom! Waited a couple of min.s to settle. Appears overfilled again??
My question is do you ck the oil on that glass while running or static(not running)?
