Default Where to check oil level on a 96 1500

Ok, I have looked and don't see where to check the oil level on my 1996 Vulcan 1500 Classic. This is my first crusier (been riding sportbikes) and have been looking for the sight glass and don't see it.

I've got a 96 1500 also. There's a sight glass on the right-hand side of the bike (right-hand as I'm seated on it). Down lown beneath the cluthc basket is correct. It may be kinda hidden by your pipes. Try getting down low and looking "up" for it.

Good Luck-

Yeah. I have a 97 1500. Its there, where they said. Hard to find and very hard to see! I would prefer an old fashioned dip stick! Wonder if a dipstick like device can be obtained??
