I have seen it on bikes before and the clear cover just gets covered in oil and condensation so it makes it hard to see through it.

You will be able to keep the window clean, unlike Suzuki and Kawasaki oil windows. Gives it a "mechanical" look!

Hi Nibelungen,is that last pic taken on the side stand or with the engine
running ? I just changed my primary fluid and put just under one litre in
which didn't bring it up to that level.

Engine off.... and side stand mate...
that's the reason of a so high level...
instead with the engine running at idle... you can see hypnotic twirls of oil... like watching a logfire... not at all a quiet level like in the pic...

FYI...
with the bike jacked i had controlled a couple of minutes before the transmission oil level and it was perfect...
I.E. touched the edge of the diaphgram spring...
appreciate your attention...

P.S. one of the reason i bought that derby... is that from now on i can check the primary oil level without remove the cover...

Thanks for the info.I like some of the RSD stuff but not so much the prices.
I got a genuine RSD Nostalgia velocity stack at under half price last year and teamed
it with an xotix steel mesh air flilter and I think it looks great and certainly upped the
power.Had 4 days in Rome last week ,beautiful city.
