Hi folks one for the fiddlers be careful when checking your oil then removing the engine cover....because you might just snap the dip stick in the shaft. ....yes that was me.....did a 5 minute rant looking for something to kick.  Collected my thoughts then went to investigate luck would have it the tube is split and you are able to remove a 10mm nut and the tube is fitted with a rubber grommet allowing me to remove it and ensure it won't do any damage until I get a new one ordered. ....if it could happen to anyone it would happen to me !!!!

Folks am on for a rant.......this is the second time I've gone to get parts for my APE to get home and find I've been given the wrong parts, just got home after picking up some oil and a filter for a change to find some tin thing in the filter box that wouldn't even fit my 500 sport !!!!! So no oil change done tonight just want to shake someone the throat  >:(
