Default dip stick removal

My buddy got a sportster for his wife and can;t fix out how to pull the dip stick out ! It an 06 custom and he said the cap of the dipstick has a button that pops up on it, but he also has no owner manual with it so he is not sure how to remove it. So could someone give me a reply so I could help him out that would be great thanks!
