I don't have a manual for this specific bike, so someone else please correct me if I'm wrong. With that said, it's my best guess you should check it with the bike stood up straight with both wheels flat on the ground. So technically, neither of the methods you listed.

Again, can someone else please confirm this.

Coolant level is checked with the bike in an upright position,neither on the kickstand or a lift.

Isn't the reservoir supposed to contain the overflow?
I mean, hot coolant is probably going to melt the plastic reservoir.
Correct me if I'm wrong please.
Hot coolant will not melt the plastic reservoir.
