Oil filling up problem

1124 Views 5 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  Phil A
When I got my CBR250R two years ago, the oil level started to fill up for some strange reason. I took it to the dealership where I bought it who told me it was because I put too much oil on the chain after washing and that crept into the oil.

14 months later, the same problem arose and the dealership said that I had over filled the oil level - I never have and still haven't ever put oil in it. We agreed to disagree and I had to pay to get it repaired.

Now, after leaving my bike unused for some time, the oil level which was going down, is now over the full mark!

Any ideas? Petrol or break fluid seeping into the oil?

If the oil is not off color, it's leaking fuel thru when not running. Another problem this will create is the gas will strip oil from moving parts and you'll soon be doing an engine rebuild....rod bearings won't survive this for long...
BTW...the "chain lube mechanic"....that's the most creative way of saying "I'm an idiot" I've heard in awhile...If the seal around the crank was THAT bad, all your oil would be on the ground under your bike...
