Does the dipstick on a VTX1300 R (2008) ever "go bad" and need to be replaced? I just turned 120,000 miles and i'm noticing a very slight amount of "seepage."

I have an chrome replacement and it has an O-ring. That can go bad or go missing.

"They make a longer replacement dipstick for when the oil doesn't register on the OEM one anymore. (That was a joke or was it?)

It was indeed the O-ring. I suppose after 120,000 miles, I got my money's worth out of it. Thanks!
