Dipstick missing?

Postby Qb42 » Tue Feb 09, 2021 7:55 pm

I’m a new owner of a now two owner YM1500 with 525 hours and I have been searching through many post to confirm my suspicions but can’t find exactly what I need. I checked both oil caps that I saw but neither had an actual dipstick attached to the threaded cap. The first is by the shifter which I assume is transmission fluid and the other was on the right side near what I assume is the fuel filter. Is there another location that has an actual dipstick or should both of those threaded caps have dipsticks attached?

The 1500 had 2 versions ('red' & 'green'). One has the dipstick on the threaded plug - the other uses push in dipsticks.

Here are the only two spots I see and no push in style to be seen. I’m assuming the dipstick part is just gone.

Well I was going to attach the pictures but says file is to large.

If you are having trouble uploading a picture you can use a free image resizing program like:

http://www.picresize.com

There is nothing to download. It is free. It is all done on the website and it will allow you to reduce the size of the image to a reasonable size for uploading.
