:(Cold clutchs tend to stick. Sometimes even hot ones will drag with the engine off and the clutch pulled in. If you don't have a problem when it is hot and running I would not be to concerned though you might want to check your lever adjustment. :p

JC Whitney sells a dip stick kit for the 1100's. It screws in where the drainplug is in the front.

I finally put my dipstick on a week ago when I did an oil change, love it!!!

BTY, if the tubing doesn't quite line up straight to go into the fitting just bend it a little at a time till it lines up. Also take note the dipstick isn't marked. You need to put in enough oil to just show on the lower line in the site glass, then pull the dip stick, wipe and put back in but don't screw it down. This will be when you use a small file to mark the lower oil mark. Once marked for the low mark then fill the rest of the oil to the top fill mark on the site glass and mark this as the full mark on the dipdtick. After this always check the oil level with the dipstick unscrewed, since you have to pull it anyways to wipe it off from oil splash up the tube when the engine is running.

Pour some sea foam into that old oil & clean out the inside of your engine & tranny. Your clutches will benefit from this. Run a tank of fuel through the bike than change the oil. these lower temps will make the clutch drag a bit more until the oil thins up from heat!
