Excessive Oil blowby
Posted September 12, 2003 - 01:38 PM
I have tried to search for this problem on this board, but have come up pretty short. Is this something that I should worry about. The compression is real tight, runs great, not burning any oil and starts on the first kick without the choke even after sitting for a week. I have noticed that the original owner did very little maintenance on the bike if any at all. The air filter fell apart when I took it out, the oil filter looked like the original one (covered in metal shavings from top to bottom).
Please let me know if I should tear this thing down or just not worry about it at all. I am sure the bike has at least a couple thousand miles on it.

Thanks a lot for the feedback. I feel much better now. Has anyone figured out a way to route the hose so as not to gunk up the bike. Dirt and oil make a nice cake mix.

Have you warmed the bike up good and then checked the oil? I think its overfilled or your countershaft seal is bad. If you clean up the oil, wrap a rag around the end of the vent tube and tape it on, go for a 10 minute ride and you will be able to identify where the oil is coming from. Also check the dipstick after the ride.
