That was a great deal. Here in the U.S. the parts alone would probably be $200.00. A good mechanic that you can trust is worth his weight in gold.

Oil level measuring, dip stick dipping can be a varied event...

'quick to dip' after a recent oil change or top up, or a 'I-better-just-check' overnight, first thing before a ride...
An old Suzuki engine I had never liked being at the top end of the full scale - would spit it out in to the air box breather... liked to be no more than 3/4 full on the sight glass...

Maybe check only in the morning after an overnight sit...

Good mechanics are 'worth their weight in gold' for sure.
I've known a few and 'god' never even came close to 'blessing' them.
Turkeys, scooters and god should never be mentioned at

"Count no man happy until the end is known." ~Solon

Many times we don't realize how blest we are until that which we have taken for granted is withdrawn.
Doesn't hurt to be grateful/thankful every frigging day.....
