yeah, they are some shit, whoever designed that dip stick needs a kick in the balls lol. i can still read mine good but, sounds so wrong, its does flop around on you causing oil drippage on the engine, then its a SOB putting back in the tube.

The main issue I have is over filling. Once it goes above the fill line you can't tell. I don't even check anymore I just go by the manual recommendation.

I agree that the dipstick sucks. However keep a good eye on it as the 3.3s don't hold much oil to start with. In fact my 1100 Goldwing has the same oil capacity.

What he is talking about is:

This is a NORMAL dip stick:




On the first generation X's, they dont have a NORMAL dipstick. Its a bunch of wires instead of being flat (like the one in the pic.) So when you go to check your oil, you cant tell... or its hard to tell where your oil actually sits, and not to mention its a pain in the ass getting it back in. It bends and you have to grab it and wiggle it and crap to get it in.... I hate them too. Nissan didnt do a good job making a better dipstick. Haha

Heres a pic of my first gen. dipstick:
