4 quarts and still low?

Hello! I just bought my first bike. 2006 ZX6R and first thing I did was change the oil.

Drained old oil
Removed old filter
Installed new filter
Put in 4 qts of new oil.

I stopped at 3.5qts and checked the oil window and it was still low. So I added the rest of the oil and it still is below the bottom line on the window. I let the engine run and there are no leaks.

I had the bike on a swing arm stand when I looked the first time. Then I took it off the stand and stood it upright and it still is low.

Not sure why it is this low. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

4 qts seems like a bit much.

It may be a pig, but it's a pig with a rocket in it's ass!
