Get the clip on replaced asap. The likes or a bent shifter can wait till money allows. That's the worst of owning a valuable/newish bike. It's torture trying to mind them

Ok people so the bike does have too much oil in it, sight glass is completely covered when level and you have to give it a bit of angle to get it in the middle of the glass, i reckon there is probably 150mls too much in it?

It was only serviced by the dealer before I bought it, so my question is do you reckon theres any way fuel could have gotten into the oil?

It was only on the ground for about 15 seconds before I got it up and obviously its fuel injected so I dont think it can but any people know for sure?

The oil level doesn't bother me too much more the chance of fuel having mixed with it

How does the fact that a mechanic put a smidge too much oil Into the engine while servicing it equate to it not been serviced properly? Jaysus lad you're seriously over thinking this. The bike fell over...thats all. What ever harm is done can be seen. There's no fuel in the oil and just because the engine has slightly too much oil doesn't mean it wasn't serviced properly. Just buy your couple of bits to repair the bike and change the oil when the mileage dictates.

It is understandable though in fairness, ya have yourself a minty bike that your very proud of and then something silly like that happens and its not perfect any more.....all ya see when ya look at it now it the little scratched or bent bit then your mind goes to wondering what else could be wrong. Its frustrating as hell when it happens.
