Hey, Joe - hope this doesn't confuse, butt on the A&S parts fiche, they show this number 11 11 7 661 648, as well as the one from Steve. Both cost the same, so somewhere, there must have been some sort of change in either material, or sumpthin'.EncoreJoe said:My sight glass is getting hard to see through and I'd like to replace it. Does anyone have a reference on where to order this or the part number?
Thanks reply - yes that did cross my mind " is there any oil in this bike ??" - will take your advise and watch the sump fill up for reassuranceEncoreJoe said:On my '99 with bike on the sidestand the full level is at the halfway point of the window glass.
I've had mine full to the very top of glass when on centerstand to the point I had to shake the bike a little to see a bubble of air at the top. That didn't hurt anything but makes it hard to check.
You can also look at the glass as soon as you cut the engine and watch the sight glass fill to reassure yourself that there is really oil in there
I have mine filled to the brim so to speak as well. That way I look at the sight glass and if I see black I am good to go. You would really have to add a couple of extra quarts to suffer from the effects of over filling the way this sump runs. So you are fine the way it is now.G-DAVE said:I have an 08 LT - not had it long so a newbie - when reading the oil level with the bike on the center stand can't see a level as if the engine oil was to high.
When I put the bike on the side stand there is a clear level and its just visible near the bottom of the window . Does that sound okay or should I be trying to drop some oil out.
Any advice welcome .
By the way love the site.
