oil change?

thanks

I think you are fine. Button everything up and do one of two things.

1. Try to guage how much oil came out. Add just a little bit less and then do the proper oil check procedure to confirm.

2. Do an oil change right now.

Just as Sundog said... What happens is the oil from the frame will leak past check valves and fill the bottom of the engine ("Sumping"). This was a very common issue with old British dry sump motors (oil in frame) as well as modern day dry sump engines. Drain and refill just as you would with a normal oil change (frame, filter chamber, etc..).

It's normal for a lot of oil to be there if the bike has set long! If you had run it for a while first you would of seen the amount you are use to. Just like Sundog says turn it in to an oil change.

Yeah like roach said is what it sounds like. If you run it for a while all the oil will pump up into the res.

thanks, it has sat for an awfully long time, I will do just that.

thanks a bunch, I was hoping that is what it was, but was nervous.

If it has sat for that long a proper oil change wouldn't hurt anyway.
