My 500EX motor was already broken in and heat cycled. It was sitting for a month with an occasional start and idle. After a hard ride at a mx track I checked my oil level with engine oil temp at 250* and the motor shut off. The temp never went higher than 250* (cooler works great!) The oil was near the top of the tank. I let it cool down for an hour and the oil level was at the top of the crosshatch section (max full). I went back out for about 20 more laps and went back to the staging area and the oil was seeping out of the dipstick o ring. i have an aftermarket dipstick with a temp gauge on it. I removed the dipstick and oil started to overflow. I havent ridden it since then (no time) but checked the oil and its back down but above the full crosshatch area. I dont smell it but could it be possible that gas ended up in the motor from a sticking float. When I towed it to the track I forgot to turn off the petcock and actually left it on reserve. its now shut off. after about 40 laps I have about 3/4 of a tank is this excessive or ok?
I just got a 04 Suzuki Vinson, changed the oil and done other service work. My main question is about the crankcase oil capacity, Owners manual states 3.8 quarts with filter change, but it completely fills the sight glass. It was like that before I changed the oil and filter but it had over 4 quarts of oil in it. Is it supposed to be like that? Does anyone know if 3.8 quarts is correct and is it supposed to completely fill sight glass when it running or engine is off?
