let me preface by stating that I have been riding for most of my life.

Having read the manual many time I just don't understand the method for checking the oil level on my 2016 GRiSO. Once the engine is warm you burn the shit out of your hand trying to get the dip stick out then once it is out, its black and you cant see any oil on the stick. Am I missing something? I know that there is oil in the bike, and the light always goes out almost instantly when cranking. Does anyone have a easier to read stick or a better method to checking.

Rough the edge of one of the ribs on the stick up with a file, it makes it a lot easier to read.

Check the level with the bike upright and the stick just resting on the threads. It should be half way between the 'Add' and 'Full' marks. Once you know it's right measure it again with the bike on its side stand. Note where it is on the stick and that is your top up mark for future refference.
