Need help Big time..........please - August 4, 2007, 07:32 PM

ok so i got into a gravel accident, my clutch cover all damaged, my bike slide for a while where my clutch cover had an hole in it from grinding, so i replaced today and changed the oil too, now when your bike is running on the side, the oil glass not suppose to show any oil until you shut the bike off, some how the oil stay the same, i guess the oil pump is not pumping and the oil light is on, is that something cause during the accident or do i need to reset the computer by disconnecting the battery? i need help i don't want to cease the engine.

You probably shouldn't see oil in the window when it's on the side stand no matter whether it's running or not. How much oil did you put in?

i know that, the bike was stand out by my friend, and when bike is running, it shouldn't be able to see oil on side glass because it's pumping oil in to the engine. but when off, even my boy was still on the bike stand up, oil should have gone back on the glass. plus the oil light is on too. kawi fourm peeps told me to burp the oil filter while is running. i just don't know, other said loose up the oil cap.

Don't turn the bike on again until you get a mechanic to look over your bike.

I seriously doubt that's what the book said. 600cc bikes typically take around 2.5 liters of oil with an oil and filter change. Even if it did say that and it already had 1.5 in it, why would add the full amount?

I'm pretty sure you have too much oil in it. Drain it all, refill it until the oil level it halfway in the sight window with the bike sitting straight up. Problem solved.

please re read thread, before oil was added i drain out 1.5 because thats all it had left from the damaged clutch cover, the rest is on the road. now the clutch cover replaced, added oil and filter, and added the right amount, the question is not how to add or change oil. is why the oil not pumping, you should not see oil on glass in any bikes when running, or in idling. when engine off bike stands up you can see oil start to show on glass. So when i see oil on the glass while is running something is wrong, sensor, pump, burp the filter, maybe someone else can answer thanks anyways SVBADGUY

J dubbz - your first post was a little unclear. It sounded like you had 1.7 in and put another 3.7 on top of that.

So to clarify your post: you emptied it, put in 3.7 - and when running the bike it still shows oil in the window.

Goodluck with the problem.

that seems odd.

Removing the cap really shouldnt have caused any major diffrence in the oil level, there shouldnt be enough crankcase pressure to cause a diffrence in oil level.
