REDUCE THE RISK : Oil Sight Glass Timing Level Windows - SPECIAL OFFER

Posted on

Two unrelated incidents at Phillip Island last week with Ducati Pantah bikes have confirmed our fears. Too many riders are using the old plastic Oil Sight Glasses which crack and ultimately fail. At Phillip Island, the degradation of two such glasses was so severe that they actually fell out - unfortunately not an uncommon event.

In one instance, the loss of the oil sight glass from a well-prepared (and scrutineered) bike luckily resulted in minimal damage. The other incident was horrific, ending with a following rider crashing at 160kph and hospitalised after sustaining multiple injuries. Do we need to wait until someone is killed before things change?

It's for exactly this reason, we've been producing our own aluminium-bodied replacement sight glasses for six years now at Sports Motorcycles. Customer's engines are rebuilt with these in place, and it's not an option to refit the old item.

Our Oil Sight Glasses are manufactured in-house from aircraft spec 7075 Series aluminium, anodised and fitted with toughened glass windows. The mating face is recessed and fitted with an 'O' ring for a perfect seal.

In our efforts to minimise the further risk of oil spillages on track, we're putting out a special offer to encourage race-license holders to replace BOTH Sight Glasses NOW.

If you send us a scan of your Race License, your Paypal email address, and your delivery address, we'll provide you with an Oil Level Window and a Timing Side Window Sight Glass for 25% OFF the usual price (our online prices include Global Shipping).
