Unhappy 2009 ninja 250r oil auge cracked and leaking.

i have a 2009 ninja 250r
it has a engine oil leak which is leaking from the oil level gauge (the small glass window that shows the level of the engine oil)
the glass on the gauge is cracked and is leaking which causes the bike to smoke since it hits the exhaust pipe.
i need some help on finding what that part is (the little glass) what the piece that holds the engine oil is called, and how much is it too fix and if it's a very serious problem.
and if it's even possible to fix on my own?

the dealership wants to charge me 275 for the work? it looks pretty simple and quick.

oil sight glass is cracked and leaking


how much is it too fix
didn't you mention $275?


if it's a very serious problem
oil leaking out of the motor and possibly getting onto the rear tire causing a loss of traction, fall down go boom, or losing all the motor oil causing an engine seizure

if it's even possible to fix on my own?
check the service manual to see if you are capable of undertaking the project and have the appropriate tools, make a list of the new parts you will need according to the service manual (i.e. sight glass, gasket), call a dealer to price/order parts. bada bing bada boom
