/04 RMZ 250 Oil Comeing Out Breather Hose
Posted February 06, 2005 - 11:59 AM
After getting it running, oil started running out in a constant stream from the breather hose.. ( I think thats what that hose comes from..? ) I shut it off right away, but about half a cup of oil ran out. I did all the pe-start checks that the manual has. The oil level was not over full according to the sight glass......Has anyone had the same experiance....? This can`t be normal...?
Thanks for your help.......!

It has only been run a couple of times for only a minute or two, would the small amount of oil that came out make a differnce in the oil level that come from the factory...? Should I drain it and refill...? What do you recommend for oil..?
Thanks, Frank, W`Lake, BC

you cannot go by the sight glass. the oil sits in the sump , and gives a false reading.

if the hose is not once a round the intake the oil will come out of the engine breather
check the oil with bike level /straight and cool it should be at the top 3/4 of the sight glass

If bike is brand new or still before first service, chances are the person at the dealership who prepped or serviced the bike was a retard. One of the first bulletins issued by suzuki was due to people who were in charge of pdi'ing the bike were adding oil till it read in the sight glass.
What weight oil and what is the temperature that the bike is being ran in. 20 degree weather and 10w40 oil , you can almost count on some oil being pushed out the breather till the motor warms up and the viscosity of the oil reduces
Last check the breather hose routing if it is mis-routed or pinched this could cause isssues also.

Yes as you can guess I've already rerouted it straight down so tell me how I screwed up.
