Good article Ajays.

As I have mentioned here before, I thought my sight glass was dirty, but I was simply overfilling with oil, even though I was using the amount specified by the manual.

Lots of us have done this and got an oil leak sometimes covering the rear wheel......Always use the sight glass when filling/refilling never the manual.

Hi,
Make sure it is clean and refit without sealant although a little smear would do no harm I suppose. There is no internal pressure there to blow it out.
That is what I did and I have had no problems......only from the wife....!
Keep smiling Ajays
