Not sure what bike you have, but you will find the information here:

I have a dragster and the info is found on page 19 from the manual:

btw, the majority of our bikes like to rest on the min line. If you put anymore in, she will just spit it out back down to min. By all means you should be able to see something in the exp tank.

Tip: I use an old (thoroughly cleaned) squeezy bottle of washing up liquid to top up the exp tank via the hole. Not sure what the equivalent of Fairy Liquid is over in Cali

Some of us have the expansion bottle with the ROUND brass insert.

Hence more info (and caveat):
Wrenching ONLY when COLD and retorquing with the indicated 8 Nm value.
Meaning tight
but not like some frenzied neanderthal on steroïds.

Otherwise you'll kill the brass insert!
It will turn in the thin plastic wall of the tank and your screw will be useless.

And getting a new one might take a long time nowaday.

Absolutely this, but I know mine wasn't done up gorilla tight, it just seized with either a bit of corrosion or the heat cycles.

In better news, the replacement tank was supplied in a week from the factory, this was last week.

thanks so much fellas, love the wealth of info on this forum for MV's (BTW post was for a Rivale). I'll shine a flashlight and see if I can see any fluid at the low level mark.
