I just purhased a 2003 v-rod. It came with a new dip stick that has no makings on it. Would someone photograph there original dip stick with a measuring tape running beside it. I really like the new one and want to duplicate the makings on to the new stick. A extra big thanks. Ally

My OEM Dipstick is Black, and does not show well in pics. From the bottom thread, to the High oil mark is 4.5". To the low mark is 5". Does this help?
(Not sure if an '04B is the same.)

I would just change the oil get it all out. Refill with 5 quarts. Mark that as high, and keep it topped off.
:them:Safest bet there is.Remember to mark the full mark while at operating temp just after the fans shut down with the bike level not on the kick stand.If you have the thermometer dipstick I would just get a factory stock dipstick and keep it somewhere on the bike.I can't read mine to save my life with clean oil.Im sure you already know to let the bike sit for 3 full minutes but no more while checking it hot.Hot is the best way according to the service manual

Scuf the dipstick with some course sand paper this will make it easier to read. :2cents:

Since we're on the subject of dip sticks....The previous owner of my bike marked the dip stick with the bike on the kick stand. I have never found any variance between leaned over and straight up, when I check it. (but then again it's never used/leaked a drop) My question is, what is the problem with checking it on the stand if the stick is marked properly?
