This is from my manual - so do you screw it in or not

IMPORTANT: To accurately check fluid level, engine
must be run at 1500 RPM for two minutes immediately
prior to checking level.
2. Start engine and run at 1500 RPM for two minutes
to fill all hydraulic circuits.
IMPORTANT: Be sure to push dipstick all the way
down into dipstick tube when checking fluid level.
3. Stop engine and quickly check fluid level. Add
automatic transmission fluid, if necessary, to
bring level up to full mark on dipstick. (Refer to
“Filling Transmission,” following.)

If you V-Drive is the same as mine the capacity should be 4.4 Quarts. That being said I drain & refill my transmission at the begining of the year. I check the fluid level after refilling by sticking the dipstick in without screwing it in and 4.4 quarts fills it perfectly. But my manual says to refill with 15-40W motor oil not automatic transmission fluid?

My MC dealer recommends 15-40W as well for the transmission.

FYI - Ilmor went back to ATF - And yes the proper method for checking the level is to not screw the dip stick back down.

Thanks for the replies, my tranny has a sticker on it stating the 15W-40 oil also.

Mine is a V drive, does anyone have a good way to add oil. It is not very easy to access

just read that PDF - so Tranny oil needs to be replaced every year?? or only replaced every year if you switch to 15-40 motor oil?

Every year sounds excessive but I guess if your tranny rattles and 15-40w is the fix then that's your regiment?

Do I have that right?
