As I finally begin the teardown on my R75/7 winter project I wanted to get some input from those in the know on the oil sump that came on the bike. Here's a look... Using the most excellent info on the largiader.com site (LINK) this appears to be a Motoren-Israel aftermarket pan. I haven't had it off yet so I don't know if the pickup has been extended downward as it should be, will report back. A few questions and considerations: Using the same site referenced above I appear to have the original stock dipstick with the "max" mark 260 mm from the base. What oil quantity should I be using and what level on the stick should represent full? Is there a longer dipstick I should be using, and if so where would I get one? I see that the kickstand crossbar is hitting the fins and understand that that is not good. I plan on having the machine shop at work use a ball end mill to relieve the fins for the crossbar, good idea? Can I lift the engine out of the bike with this (or any) oil pan on? It's been so long since I pulled an airhead engine I can't remember the procedure or what must be disassembled. Any other advice about anything relating to this appreciated.
