When you look into the Selespeed fluid reservoir you should see a metal plate with a small hole in it.
That is a baffle plate which is about half way up the tank.
The correct level is just above that plate straight after the pump has stopped with the key at "MAR".
If you top it up and end up putting too much in, it will just blow the excess out of the breather tube when the system relaxes, which as std exits just in front of the left front wheel. Many of us have fitted a small plastic bottle (ie a tablet bottle) to allow you to monitor any fluid blown out of the breather.
Remember there is only 0.6L in the entire system, so any excess blown out will be tiny.
Re the Reverse issue, remember you need to keep your foot on the brake until it has completed its change into Reverse (or 1st). If you let your foot off too soon it will go back to Neutral.
