First, are you sure you are not overfilling the oil? With the bike leveled, 1/2-3/4 in the window is fine.

The oil is either leaking out, which you say it isn't, or the engine is burning it. Is it making blue smoke?

It could be forced into the coolant system but you would have some serious other symptoms by now.

Have not seen any blue smoke.
And oil level was always between min and max level when I filled it up, got my garage ( they did forks on it) after I did oil change on it and they said ohh your oil level was low so we filled it up( could not see through the oil level “window”) so I drained a bit out...

Check your coolant, check your spark plugs. The oils going somewhere . How fast does it disappear ? Are you checking the oil level at around the same engine temp? You could get a diffrent reading if you check when the engines hot and if you check when it’s cold. Also my 750 would smoke sometimes at first start up on the day once it warmed up it was fine. I would check the oil often but it only needed once a month less than 1/2 quart it did not bother me I would just check the level more often.
