Oil Level window

Postby foxhound0511 » Wed Mar 26, 2014 12:58 pm



On my 1982 GL1100 engine on the oil level window. It is weaping oil around the screw where
you can wipe the oil to get a better look. On my 1983 engine there is a grommet seal where on this one there isnt.
Does anyone know a fix for this? Thinking about filling it with sillicone

Look around the web....I think JC Whitney used to sell a aftermarket "dipstick" that fit the 1100...
Get something to check the oil level in place before you seal that window shut.

Hi l checked that part on my 82A and there is a gasket. What l would try is this:
•Remove any oil and dirt from a window and screw.
•There should be some space when you move (pool out) screw
•Fill that space with a gasket macker that is oil resistant
•Lett it dry
Good luck with the project.
Regards Zoran

Thanks guys! I actually replaced my 1983 engine with a 1982... I found that there is a boot type seal on it and I transferred it over to the other engine... When the weather is nice I'll take it for a ride and see how it works
