It seems like the day for new LT owners. I brought my 2001 home in February in a snowstorm. Have only gotten to ride her recently. What a BIKE! I'm just getting used the weight, but when she's upright, you gotta love her. I have one question that I have not seen a good thread to address. I really cannot see through the sight glass to check the oil. At first, the oil was completely black (I don't think the owner changed the oil as frequently as he claimed). I changed it once with filter, ran it for 300 miles, and changed it again. I watched as I filled it with oil, couldn't see the level come up. Started it, and watched after shutdown, can't see the level. Nothing I have tried works, all I see is darkness. Anything anyone can offer?
