no its got a plastic thing you unscrew, kinda like a dipstick in a car but i cant tell whethers its high or low cos ive got no manual

 

The dipstick must have marks on it to show high and low. Put the bike in an upright position, remove the dipstick and wipe it, put it back and screw it in, with the engine cold remove it again and see where the oil is on the stick. If you can't see ANY oil then its deffo too low. :shock:

hmmmm


i would be having my doubts if your having to do the work :?

 

I'm with Stu on this one. I wouldn't touch a thing on it because if it all goes wrong they could blame you, and then charge you to put it right.

Check the paper work and terms of the loan, Insurance and any other charges you my incur
