Hi Pete,

The gearbox oil level plug is indeed the one on the right hand face of the gearbox towards the front. It is indeed tucked in tight behind the foot rest, so you have to loosen and move the foot rest to gain access.

The bike should be positioned vertically on both wheels when checking the oil level. Correct oil viscosity is straight gear oil SAE 140 (not hypoïd oil). Shell Dentax is ideal, if you can get it, but any straight SAE 140 gearoil will do.

Cheers!

Carl
