    Started the bike today to begin check up and fix up for longish trip in two weeks. Had my back turned letting it warm a bit. Turned around a notice oil dripping from right side.

    closer inspection revealed the sight glass had fallen inside the engine housing. Now what ?

    The sight glass is a removable piece, so you'll have to take off your cover and put the sight glass back in. I've never heard of that happening before, but if a piece can come out, it eventually will. Shouldn't be too difficult if nothing is broken.
    If you can't find it, grind it

    Thanks--I know but, how can I be certain it won't fall out again miles from nowhere?

    I don't know. Maybe it wasn't put in correctly to start with?

    Ok that really sucks, a pain on such a little thing. And not time spent on up grades, my least favorite expenditures are on crap that shouldn't need to be done twice!!
    Faster faster!! Well maybe not.
