Transmission Oil Level

I stripped the threads on the transmission oil casing, as some of you might already know. Well my dad and I went riding around town for an hour looking at all the auto aprts stores for 12mm Heli Coil. None of them had it. We finally went to a store that had a 12x1.75mm oversized bolt that cut its own threads. After draining the oil and putting the bolt back in, we read th manual for awhile. It told us to put 0.69 Quarts of oil into the machine (or inbetween the marks on the glass window). So we put 2 cups in, then about a fingernails length under the cup mark for 3 cups. It seemed like enough oil. I rode around for 5 minutes then came back and let it sit overnight. The next day, I looked and the whole screen was filled with oil. I dont want to drail some out, because I know we put the right amount in. But I'm not sure if I should. Do you guys go by the marks on the window, or do you just measure it out, put it in, and call it good?

Blasterboy86 told me that he just pours a quart into his and he's been doing that for 2 years with no problems.

the clymer says refill it to 700ml if the cover came off and then ride it and let it warm up and shut it off and let it sit for couple minutes and then check the fill window.
