Has anybody come up with a way to keep this heavy ol' machine level while checking the oil? Dealer told me its a two person job, but I ain't got two persons.
I agree with Randall. I have carried an old 3" piece of 2x4 in my saddle bags for a long time. It may be low tech....but it works and is not something someone wants to steal if I forget it under the stand.I usually put a chunk of 2x4 under the kickstand. Low-tech, but it works.
Been doing that on my Vic XC almost from day 1 and works fine .. Level on my Vic shows about 1/2 between the lower tip and the add mark when pn the stand and all is okay ..My dealer suggested I learn where the full oil mark is when the bike is on its stand and not worry with standing the bike up. I haven't tried this yet but it is a possibility.
