All engine oil consumed?

Recommended Posts

Just bought a used bike, noticed the oil was black, did a complete flush and change with filter, then rode about 3 hours worth, checked my oil sight glass and it was absolutely empty, even tried tipping the bike, and I couldn't see any in the window. I don't see any oil leaks, the exhaust is a little blue, but an entire quart in 3 hours? Any ideas what could be causing this or where the hell my oil is?

Have you measured how much is in the transmission side now?

Search oil migration, pretty common issue on these bikes when the main and balancer seals fail.

I have not checked, didn't think to since they're separate, but that that makes sense if the seal failed. I'll check that when I get home, thank you!
