Re: Rattling chain sound
Again if the bike was hot and you started it up and ran it a few minutes then shut it off you need to wait 15 minutes for the oil to become visible in the sight glass again.
In the diagram below the yellow line is where normal oil level is with the engine running and the red line (going through the center of the sight glass) is where the oil will settle to after 15 minutes. There is no way even an oil overfill to above the sight glass will ever get hit by the crank.
