After a 6 hour ride on a local MX track i was checking over the bike and my oil was about one quart low. I have not noticed this ever before, I know the bike blows out a small amount, However i am concerned, or should i be?

How long after the engine was running did you check it? It will drain down to the engine over time.

A quart low is dangerously low. Do as the previous poster stated, make sure you check the oil in the proper way.

1. Bike level

2. Bike warmed for about 1 minute

3. Do not screw in the dipstick, simply put it as far in the hole without screwing it in.
