This question makes me feel like a dipstick! Why doesn't my bike have a dipstick?

The 83 did not have a dipstick but you can buy one for it. It mounts in front of the bike down buy the filter. JcWhitney has them. MCFF

In case you don't already know, the Sight Glass is on lower right side of the engine. Little scredriver slot in the center is a wiper. Place on centerstand to check.

Get down on your knees on the right side of the bike and you'll see it:

GSMacLean,



Excellent picture! Great labeling too. Yours actually shows your level of oil in there. I never could get a comfortable reading on mine.

Yeah, mine is pretty clear and easy to read. I also have a dipstick, and the dipstick matches the oil window exactly (when on the center stand).

Damn GS, that is one of the few 1100's that I have seen that the window is not only clear enough to read, but that isnt caked in enough grime to make it hard to find. nice pic!!



(my buddy wasnt nearly as fastidious as most with cleaning, and it showed with the grunge on the bike)

Jimbo, now that you feel like an even bigger dipstick . . .welcome to the club. I was going crazy at first with mine when I pulled the filler plug expecting to see a dipstick and there was nothing there, I was afraid to start the bike for fear it had broken off and might wreck the engine. I've also seen others with the same question.

So laugh, slap yourself in the head, check the oil and hit the road.
