Question about 2001 Yamaha V Star 1100 Classic
Motorcycles generally use one of three methods to check oil level.
1. A "sight glass" or small window which will allow you to see the oil level. (it should be at the mid point of the sight glass. Check it with the bike upright and not leaning on the kickstand.
2. The fill plug may have a short dipstick attached to it just like a car would. Again check it with the bike upright.
3. If no other method is used, then open the fill plug and fill until the oil level just reaches the lowest part of the fill hole without spilling out. Once again do this with the bike in the upright position.
Check to make sure the rubber O-ring is in good condition and is properly seated on the fill plug while you are at it!
