2007 wr 450 oil in airbox

7 posts in this topic

Hs anyone had oil collect in their irbox? I was riding hard this weekend and noticed about 1/4 QT of oil in the bottom of the air box when I checked my dip stick the level was below the XX mark.

Typically this indicates an over fill of oil in the motor. Happened to me and other people here... we were not draining the oil resevoir with the left side drain plug... adding a liter of oil and calling it good, level looked good after the change.

When I found oil in my air box my oil resevoir was full to the point it was coming out of the dip stick port.. which is odd because I ALWAYS check my oil level after a change and it was good at the time...

Your situation is odd in that you have low oil...

I have never heard of this happening because the bike was left on it's side:excuseme:

Same problem here. Teh dealer told me I was overfilling on oil change, so next time, after following owners manual (as always) draining at all drain points, I put .9L in. (just to see). When I ride on the highway--5th gear long distance--my airbox fills with oil, and it runs down the bike and lubricates my chain and kickstand. Cool feature? NO. It's not overfilled. When I go fast for 5-10 minutes, oil sucks into the airbox.
