When I check the oil on my 1500, after wiping the old oil from the dipstick, do I just sit it in and then check it or do I screw it all the way in and then check it?

set on top of threads, on c-stand. OOOOPPS! You don't have a c-stand.

You set it in there and turn it backwards to get the oil level even all around the stick. You don't measure it with it screwed back in.

I have one on it but don't need it.
Thanks, that's what I was doing but just wanted to check to make sure I was doing it correct.

Man, I have not been turnning it backwards to MAKE sure it was even on the stick. I was thinking by just rotating my head around the stick was giving me a good reading. Thankd Rudy for keeping me stright. :ROFL:

Jimsjinx sound like a plan, I will get with you and we will do some riding. I am new to Wings so any help I can get would be great. I will be out of town this weekend but I will get with you next week.

Also let the bike sit for a few minutes (after turning engine off), so that all the oil drains back down into the pan... Otherwise you'll get a low reading.
