The "cross" shape of the dipstick is supposed to help retain the oil using the "liquid surface tension". Although it is not "at a glance" reading, it is possible to get a level from that Guzzi dipstick.

I asked my good friend at LIQUI MOLLY, here's the answer: the dipstick is calibrated to be accurate when the oil is hot (my guess).


    Technically it is absolutely normal to check the oil level at operating temperature. Oil has a different behavior and a different volume when it is hot, so to make sure the oil level is correct when the engine is running the level should be checked / adjusted when it is hot.

We hope we could help you with our information. Should you have further questions regarding our products we would be very pleased to get contacted from you again.
