I was talking with a guy that owns a '67 shovel and he was surprised that I was able to check my oil w/ the dip stick from the tank w/o starting it first and pumping the oil up. What??? He said that the oil settles down and his oil tank is dry until he warms the motor. I'm pretty sure there's something going on with his bike. Does anybody happen to know? He said it's been like that since he's owned it, which has been several years. Thoughts?
