My analog temp gage I bought from Harley does not pop up. It is also accurate. The dealer guy is full of it as usual.

The actual dipstick "stick" looks very, very different from the stock Harley dipstick. I bought my bike used and it came with that temperature gauge dipstick (63023-05)....so I can't compare the length of the two dipsticks.
So, where on that chrome "stick" should the oil be? I'm not feeling very confident that I have I have oil at the right level.
