(1) engine was overfilled with oil,now exhaust pipe is constantly dripping from joint at lowest point.I intend removing and dumping what I can.--any damage associated with oil over-filling (2) 1&3...


Draining some oil is the thing to do. It will probably take a few days for the dripping to stop. The cylinder walls are splash lubricated. Too much oil lessens the splash. Chances are that little or no damage was done. Install a fresh set of spark plugs. Before installing, compare the spark between 1 & 2 cylinder. If the spark is noticeably weaker on cyl 1, consider getting a new coil. Please rate my answer. Thanks.

Where is the oil plug to my honda 600 1993 shadow i want to change the oil. shoul i change the oil after riding 500 miles @ 75 miles per hour it was changed before i took te trip?


the drain plug is under the motor in left front of the crankcase it faces the out side not straight down, and it is behind the radiator hose. riding the bike at 500 miles at 70 mph will not hurt the oil you only need to change the oil every 3000 miles.

Honda CB250 ticking after it ran out of oil


Is there any area on the bike that is covered with what seems to be "wet dirt"? It is entirely possible you could have a blown seal and are therefore dumping oil. If the dipstick is showing nothing, there is not enough oil for the engine and it will seize so don't run it until you locate the source of the leak.

Unless the bike has constant white or bluish-gray smoke coming out of the exhaust all the time, it's not burning oil.

The tapping you are hearing could be a a lifter, valve, connecting rod...whatever it is, the tick started recently and you don't see oil on the dipstick, there is a major oil leak somewhere.

125 twin recent rebore 1000 miles ago one exhaust


Its a little hard to tell without seeing the exhaust color.Black is oil.brown is fuel.If the bad cyl. still has a good plug it may not be oil.Check the smoky exhaust carby.It may be you do not have complete firing on the bad cyl.MAYBE.Does the bike run well once you get the revs up under load?Check for inlet leaks that may change the fuel mixture on the suss. cyl.There is a few more things but start at these things 1st.After a complete rebuild,these problems do start.I hope this helps

Oil missing


Hi ......Oil can only be 'lost' through leaks or burning. If you have no leaks then I would suggest a compression test to see if the rings are suspect or replace the valve seals. If you remove the spark plugs the colour will indicate a fault. The getting slower MAYBE a sign you are having a partial siezure ............. does your oil warning light come on or flicker ? Have you recently changed the oil filter ?  Let us know how you get on.

Oil consumption


300 miles and I have had to top up the oil every periodically (I fill to the middle of the window.) In 1600 miles I have used 800ml of oil. Is this normal?6900 miles on my PS. I followed the factory's recommendation regarding break-in by keeping the revs in the recommended range AND riding it on twisty mountain roads (a part of the factory break-in recommendation that many people fail to notice/mention) that provide the varying loads on the engine that facilitate good break in. I've not had to top off the oil yet. I change it about every 2000 miles. I use Castrol GPS o,,
