Regarding the recent discussion of gearbox oil quantity, and appropriate length of the dipstick, on my Shadow, the top bevel of the flat area at the end of the dipstick is about 5 11/16" from the landing stop bevel on the handle. If the gearbox has enough oil to reach that top bevel of the flat area at the end of the dipstick, it looks like the oil level, relative to the gears on the layshaft, will be somewhere between the teeth of the gears, and the dogs of the gears, and below the layshaft itself. It that the desired design, ie, correct length of dipstick?
