i've noticed that the rear brake fluid level looks like its below the min line when parked and leaned on kickstand but is within the min and max lines when its upright. the manual doesnt specify when to check it? should i be topping it up?

Oh, and don't just top up. If your pads are half worn the fluid level should be somewhere halfway the reservoir. You don't want a suddenly overfilled reservoir after replacing pads....

how many miles on the bike?
check brake pad thickness.
brake fluid level will lower once the brake pad wears.

About 5600 miles. It’s due for its first major service anyway (for some reason the sixty2 has 10,000km interval vs the 800 at 12,000km intervals)

if you use rear braking a lot then better check pad thickness.
when time come to replace the pads, use EBC HH pads
