Not too hard to get the excess oil out. Easiest way is to tip the bike on its side with the oil fill bung out, and drain off some of the excess via there. The only other way to do it is drop the oil entirely and start again with fresh oil(dont reuse it even though it is new). Gets really messy trying to put the sump drain bung back in with oil pouring everywhere. You also stand the risk of getting dirt into the engine, so i Dont recommend draining off the excess from underneath. Dont run the bike with excess oil. The site glass is fitted from the inside of the casing, and is rather hard to clean. They get dirty from a build up of clutch friction material settling on the glass. You have to strip the motor down completely to do that. Hope that helps you solve your problem. Happy to answer any questions you may have. Riding bikes is so much fun...cept when it rains!! regards robotek

it has one on the oil filler plug if you have no sight glass on the side of you crank case cover. if your missing the dip stick simply buy a new dipstick. or you could check the amount of oil necessary for your bike (750-950ml) usually and drain your fluid and replace the oil with new fluid. measure it out in a measuring glass made for liquid. then your reassured you have full oil if your worried. be reminded tho that the oil lubricates your ****** as well as your wet clutch so either way oil is quite vital
