Help! I just bought a 2004 R1200CLC. Love the look, love the ride. I bought it without an owners manual, have it ordered. I have put about 1000 miles on the bike, and decided I had better check the oil. I can not find the dipstick!!! I have no BMW dealers within 100 miles of me.. Does anyone know how I check it?
There is a site glass to check the oil level. I believe it is on the left side just below the head. It is about 1 inch in diameter. Check with the bike on the center stand.
If the bike is over filled or very low on oil it may be hard to tell if it has oil or not. If glass is clear lean the bike to that side then look to see if any oil is in the glass.
