Oilhead Oil Lvel Sight Glass
« on: March 16, 2022, 10:37:56 AM »
I went to check the oil level on the oilhead on Monday and found it stained black, could barely see the oil level .
Anyone ever change one ??
Looks simple put a screw driver through the clear  plastic and pull it out .
Looks like you install it like you would an oil seal .

I'll give up my R65, when they pry my cold dead hands from the handlebars !!!!!

You are correct on method. That is exactly how I changed mine.
I bought an aftermarket replacement sight glass that is allegedly made from Corning "gorilla" glass.
