Is there any other way to cleanly extract 0.2-0.4 L from the oil reservoir than opening the drain screw again? Is there a way to siphon the excess oil out from the top using a pump or something?
yes...use a pump like you said, or get a big syringe and some tube. Did you tip the bike a little to see if you were just barely over the line?
Although for the record I would call that good if its showing below the line cold, but that's just me.
