  • Transmission dipstick

    I was checking my tranny fluid after I got my bike back from the 5000 mile service and wanted to know if anyone else has trouble reading the dipstick. It's a chrome stick and the fluid barely shows up. Also any after market sticks that I could substitute.

    You could spray paint the stick part white. I have had to do that on a couple of vehicles...... Just make sure you use a high temp paint and that you let it cure real real good before you put it back in the tranny.

                    Epoxy would hold up better and I agree it's got to be the cost. What bugs me is that if I can't see it, the techs can't see it. I'm no mechanic but I can see. And I like to double check their work.

                      You can use a powder. One time use, but it works good, IMO
                      Those who say it can't be done should get in the way of those doing it.
