There is still one more way to fix this and overcome a problem on the GL1100 at the same time. I had to do this to my 82 Aspy for this very reason.
I just installed a 3rd party dipstick!
You will have to look around to find one but I am sure there are ones out there or you could possibly even make one if you are handy. They are not rocket science.
I knew my threads were in hard shape so I picked up a new dipstick "kit", installed the adapter into the transmission case with some red or blue lock tight and let it set. It never has to come out again anyway.
From this point all you have to do to drain the bike of oil is to take off the tube with the compression fitting. You have the MUCH added benefit of NEVER having to get on your hands and knees to look at that damn sight glass again!!!!! What the H**L was Honda thinking. Now it's easy to check your oil and no excuses.
There are a few posts on here about dipsticks if you search.
1) Experience is something you don't get until after you need it.
2) A closed mouth gathers no foot.
3) IF YOU DON'T HAVE TIME TO DO IT RIGHT, WHEN WILL YOU HAVE TIME TO DO IT OVER??
Horsepower is an illusory mathematical equation; Torque is REAL, and is the source of all good things in the world.
The problem is not the problem. The problem is your attitude about the problem. Do you understand?
