My Wing has one of the add on dipsticks that extends out the front of the engine and comes up in front of the lower radiator. The stick is round for about an inch at the bottom. It then goes to a flat section and then about 3 inches farther back to round.

There are no markings on the stick. So how do I know where the actual "Full: marking is at. Is it the top of the first round section, the top of the flat section, or somewhere in between.

what you must do is check your oil with the bike level & you have to look through the sight glass on the right of the bike, down low where your foot goes.

Once you are happy that your level is good. You pull the dip stick & mark the oil line with a file. This will give you the full line. When you go to drain your oil, Again watch the sight glass & when it appears low, Pull the stick & mark it for low level. Now your set!!

I wanted to put one of those on my 83 but my mechanic said they make 2 kinds of those, the ones that leak and the ones that are going to leak!
