I have just read, that there should be a dip -stick on the oil filler cap and it can be knocked of due to poor design.Mine has no dip stick on it.So I need to drain the oil and fill to the correct amount Len

I have just found the drain plug, but out of my large range of spanners and sockets, I had a job to find the right one.All that comes out of the gearbox is a white emulsified goo.Len

Sounds like someone has used a pressure washer on the bike and forced water into where it shouldn't be!
