I've noticed over the past two times I've been out on the FZ1 that when I come to a stop I get a little smoke coming from what seems to be under the tank. It bellows out a little through the radiator and out in front of the bike. Not extreme but enough to notice. More noticeable at night as it shows up in front of the headlight.
My bike only has 2500 miles on it. Previous owner did the oil change at 1000k with Amsoil 10w40 full synthetic. I didn't notice it at all on the ride home when I picked it up (had 1700 miles then) but now I do.
Haven't been beating the snott out of it at all. Just normal riding. What I have noticed is that when the bike is level, the site glass is completely covered with oil...Not half way covered like any other crankcase site glass has ever been specified to be at on any other bike that I've owned.
Do you guys think it is just over filled enough to cause this? I peaked around real good tonight after I took it for a spin with the new exhaust and noticed oil residue on every bottom throttle body boot and clamp I could physically see. Not puddles but enough to me that would cause it to blow around and create smoke.
I'm thinking the crankcase is overfilled enough to cause some blow by
I have an extra quart of Amsoil 10w40 that he gave me when I picked up the bike. He was very neat and tiddy and didn't seem like a guy that didn't know what he was doing but maybe he over filled it?
I'm not sure how much oil he put in it...Figured I'd check the manual and see if the manufacture specifies the site glass be halfway covered with oil.
I was gonna put it on stands tomorrow and let some out and top it back off to halfway in the site glass and see if this cures my issue.
Any input would be appreciated
