2009 wr450 oil in airbox

6 posts in this topic

Good morning,

 

New to this site and new as far as maintenance goes on my bike, 2009 wr450. Normally I take it to the dealer for service but I decided to change my own oil this time. I removed the drain pug and the dipstick to get the oil draining. not sure where the other bolt is. Here is what happened. the dealer says my bike takes 1 quart of oil. After draining the oil, (not sure if a whole quart came out) I put 1 quart of oil back in the engine. rode 55 miles. Noticed oil in the airbox after the ride, a lot. Is this from overfilling or do I have another problem?? any help would be greatly appreciated.

Periodic oil change 0.95L
With oil filter replacement 1.0L
Total amount 1.2L

 

One drain bolt on each side of the case.

Do yourself a favor and get a manual.

Over filling could cause damage.

Not sure how you are making the logical connection between one and the other. The oil may have been there for quite a while.

I'd wipe the airbox nice and clean and see if it comes back

If it comes back, then I'd dig a bit deeper

If not, you win
