I believe your owner's manual will provide you the reference point on the hub oil dip stick. See the link below...it may help explain how this "generic" dip stick is used for a variety of Piaggio scoots.

The 1st notch is the max level so relax

Your handbook should show this

actually my handbook says the second notch is max."2nd reference notch from the bottom" printed in bold.

I took it to the dealer today and they confirmed it was a bit low.

BTW i checked the manual first before i posted to see what the proper levels should be. 8)
