Had mine for about two years and so far so good. Trying to read the dipstick is a bear, so I just use the stock dipstick whenever I check the oil.

Probably should get a good reading on the oil with the original stick then check where the temp gauge reads and make a notch on it to make it easier to see.

Thats what I would do, then one day as I am playing hopscotch with oil sticks I said "WTF am I doing all this for? A Shite Turkey Thermometer stuck in my oil pan that always reads the same temp anyways?" and ditched it for stock. I will say life hasn't been any worse with that thing gone. And lets face facts, people arent buying them for "Temp Concern" on a water cooled bike anyways.

My softail one was that way also and used the stocker to check levels with. Needing reading glasses don't help either.
This time I used paint in the check zone of the probe so I can see the level. It is oil and fuel resistant, dull grey colour.

I've had mine on for about 4yrs with no problem, it still looks like new.
However I use the original stick to check the oil level.
Mine is more for show.
