I think mine's great; it doesn't leak (touch wood) and I find it very easy to read the level.

Too bad they dont offer it in the dull aluminum...

My question is... where do I find that oil pressure gauge I see on some newer XLs.. attached to the rocker box...?

Why can't you just lightly sand the chrome for the same effect?

I bought the cheaper one on ebay at first, made in Taiwan, and it even came with an extra o-ring but it leaked immediately through the sight glass so I returned it. Then I got the one from Harley but it was impossible to remove when it was hot, which is when you need to remove it to check the level. Needless to say, I'm back to the stock dipstick!

the reason i looked into replacing my stock dipstick,
was cause i could not remove it to check the oil.
the temp gauge is a bit easier, but leaks.
im hoping a new o ring will fix it.
there is a small cut in the o ring for sure.
