I have oil coming out of the front drain in my air intake assembly. What could cause this? Has anyone ever had this problem?

Since motorcylcles and atv's don't use a pcv valve to vent crankcase pressure, there is just a straight ventline that goes into the air box, so a little bit of oil in the air box is somewhat normal, if you over fill the oil it will make it a bit worse. Worn rings or valve guides will pressurize the crankcase more than usuall and you will get an abnormal amount of oil in the airbox. If you have tipped the machine over, that could cause oil to run straight through the vent hose. Please post the year make and model of the machine you are talking about.

Did you change the oil recently?

When filling the oil you should check the repair manual for the correct amount of oil. The AC oil change kit provides enough oil for an oil change but not the exact amount. If you add all the oil you will have overfilled it.

Finally some engines check the oil level with the dipstick screwed into the engine and some with it resting above on the threads. If you think this may be the problem I can find the specifics for your model. Let me know.

I asked him for more info on his machine too. I think that was another one time poster, he hasn't come back since his original post on 9-29.

      I loosened the allen bolts on the carrier and when I went to put my driver in the alot to pull back and tighten the chain, I noticed the holes were facing the front of the bike. I tried to slide a driver in and tighten the chain but the thing would not budge. I nearly ripped the tip off the driver in the slot. Any suggestions?

      I have a 2017 Sportsman 570 SP with a power steering issue. Dealer tells me my machine is one that is not covered by recall and offers no help other than bring it in they will look at it. Any ideas?

      Can anyone point me to a good set of instructions for changing front diff oil on a 1987 Suzuki LT4WD? I can almost guess which bolts are drain & fill... but I've been wrong before... 😆 
      I found some partial posts on other forums and they linked out to dead images and whatnot. Any help appreciated. 
      This thing is running pretty good, got the front brakes back to life, electric start works fine, seat cover fixed up, plastics stitched back together...

      Got myself another project. Got it running only to find it has a transmission problem. now I am trying to rebuild it but problem is the bolt that holds on the pull start recoil gear. Any ideas if this is left threaded or right threaded. Left loosy or righty tighty. 
      Thanks.
