On my 71 Commando I noticed when filling my primary that when filled to the correct level and capacity that the chain doesn't even come close to the oil. I put in 200cc/7 oz and even when I overfilled it 4 oz that it still didn't come up to the chain. Was about 1/2" above. I measured the oil and also had the fill plug out. I tried it on both the center stand and side stand with the same results. Anyone have any ideas. All I can think of is that the motion of the bike keeps the chain oiled and/or the moving chain creates enough airflow to keep the chain lubed.
