    Low Oil???

    Just got my Ultra (only 51 mins on it so far), and was looking at the engine. i pulled out the dipstick and there is hardly any oil! There is no leak. Has anybody experienced this??? Please tell me my dealer did not purposely put only a tiny amount of oil when he built it...

    You have to make sure your ENGINE is level (not the ski), use a small level on the valve cover to be exact.

    haha...i wish i were drinking to forget about this stupid problem. when i pulled the dip stick out, the very tip of it has an indention. in that indention, sits a drop of oil. the rest of the stick is basically dry.

    well most dealers overfill it. Guess you got one that underfilled it.

    well, what did the parking lot look like? Did it have a bicycle rack for the employees to park in? If so you might want to find another dealer.
