Question about 1999 Yamaha TDM 850
I have bought a TDM 850, built in 96 or 95, en there is no oil level window. The oil level dipstick is under the sadle. How must I check the oil level?
The tdm is a dry sump engine where the oil is in a tank under the seat and is pumped around the engine and returned to the tank by a scavenger pump in the bottom of the engine so a level window on the engine is not required

There are two way most bike have to check oil level. on the right side there should be a round plug that says something like 10w40 unscrew this and there is a dipstick on the end. the other way is again on the right side there will be a sight glass about the size of a quarter with 2 marks next to it work just like a dipstick and as always to get accurate readings the bike need to be level front to back, side to side

you can check the oil level in your bike by using the "oil sight glass" at the lower part of engine in the left hand side of your bike, just below the left foot peg.there are two marks, the upper mark referring the maximum capacity for oil level and the lower mark showing the minimum level.The oil level can be anywhere between these two marks.Please make sure of two things while you check the oil level in your bike.

There is no easy fix, you need to remove the complete cover and clean it from the inside with a pipe cleaner or similar.
You can usually reuse the gasket.
If you rest the bike on its side you can leave the oil in, and it doesnt mess up the workshop floor.
