So after the 10hr service i checked the dipstick oil level and it was way overfilled.
With a syringe i removed about 300cc of oil and it came down to the top bar.

Yesterday after an hours drive i checked it again and it was over the top bar again.

Checked the manual and it says check oil level with engine cold.

So i let it cool down overnight checked it agian this morning and its still over the top bar.

So what do i do?
Remove more oil?

The bike is the 450L which shares gearbox/engine oil.

Btw i am measuring with the dipstick screwed in.

Thanks.

I’m having a similar problem with my 2008 450 ds. Any suggestions?

Smell the oil. If it smells like gas, you may have issues with piston rings. Better look into it before a rod sticks out through the side of the crank case..
