That goofy dip stick for the coolant is a pain to read--it seems to only read on half the sitck--with that said, I think I over filled the over flow holder---any way to drain just a little out and if its a bit over filled will it hurt anything?? Thanks

Don't worry about it. When it gets hot it will spit out what it doesn't need usually after shut down on your garage floor. It is the only sure way of knowing you have it topped off. IMO

Added tracer dye on my last wing. It always gave a good reading on the over flow tank dip stick. Haven't done it on this bike yet. Available at most auto parts sales.

I just drilled a couple of holes in the stick 3/4 amd full marks and one at an overfull mark.. If it has fluid in the hole than that is the level...like old school oil sticks...thunderwing
