  • [Photo Feature]: What's this guage for ( I don't know the exact name of it )

    I found this gauge like thing on my Pulsar 150 initially I thought it's for checking oil level but it's located at right side itself, what's this for? While engine is running something spins inside this.

      It is just a sight glass.

      As you have observed, RHS of the vehicle has a sight glass for checking engine oil level.

      The one on the LHS (in your pictures) is used during valve/tappet clearance adjustment. On other bikes, there will be a aluminum cap or a nut+washer that has to be removed when necessary. Spinning thing is the magneto.

      Don't worry them unless doing a valve clearance adjustment.

        That's a timing inspection window.
