Hi All: The oil dipstick has a rubber stopper on it that stops the stick from going all the way into the pan. Mine has come loose and slid all the way up to the handle. I cant tell where it was originally placed. Can you give me a picture of yours or measure from the top of the dipstick ring to where the top of the plug rests. Couldn't find anything in the manual.

T 1 & 9/16 in. from the loop is the distance. I am on my 2nd dipstick. Mine turns to rusty crap in no time. There is always water on the stick or in the tube. The crankcase ventilation is not sufficient. Mine is a 2016 two passenger. The rubber part on mine seems to swell when air hits it and is almost impossible to get back in. I would have preferred that they made the dipstick only about seven inches long and vertical like a normal dipstick so all the moisture would stay in the bottom of the crankcase instead of accumulating in the horizontal portion of the tube.
