    umm. Just got my 2004 Breva 750 with a whopping 4000 miles on the clock. Came from the midwest, all fluids changed and so on. Only has one aftermarket part, the dipstick. (has an oil temp gauge built in). But, no grooves to tell me min/max levels. Any saint want to measure theirs and tell me where they are so I can groove mine and live happily ever after. (and not have to do an oil change and figure it out for myself)

    Hey George!
    Sorry I can't help you with marking the stick but you may want to consider replacing it with a stock unit.
    There have been more than a few cases where the stick fell off & into the case.

    Do an oil change, adding the right amount of oil. Then measure the level and mark it on the stick.

    Probably overfill it if you do. Doesn't take into account the amount of oil left in the engine after draining.

    Try and find someone with a stock unit and compare would be a better option. Or somebody might post just how much they put in on each oil change.
