Oil overfill xr650

7 posts in this topic

I overfilled my oil. Doing to many things at once, I had forgot I already filled the bottom end:bonk: . It's already drained to the proper level. Any problems leaving the to much oil up top?. I know if the case was full thats a problem, but don't see problem overfull up top. Anyone?

It depends on how much over it is. If it is a lot it will get blown out the breather and cause a big mess. It's easy to just let a little out of the frame tube drain until you get it back to the correct amount.

Drain some from the lower drain bolt.

If there is not sufficient room in the top resevoir, the return line may build pressure and cause???????????

At least oil leaks.

If unsure, I would drain it to empty then put in the right amount of new oil in.

I change my oil so frequently that I have never had to top it off :worthy:
