Are you sure it's motor oil or air filter oil? Most people who regularly maintenence their air filter at every oil change clean it out and use a new "filter oil" u can find it by K&N it helps to collect the dirt that would otherwise pass thru a cheaper or paper filter causing future problems within the engine or fuel delivery system aka clogged carburator...

Gas is in the air filter compartment. What could be the problem?

your floats are sticking and overflowing out the back of the carbs.
your overflow tube in your float bowl must be clogged, otherwise the gas would run on the ground throught the drain tube.
Clean your carb really good and you shouldn't have any problems.
I recommend taking them apart and soaking everything overnight.

Take the jets out and the float&needle and soak the carb bodies, jets and screws.
After soaking rinse with water really well.
After rinsing, blow through every opening in the carb bodies, blow through each jet, and make sure you can see through them and through the little holes in the side of the main jet.

Reassemble and should work like new.

If your floats are still leaking, you make have to buy a new float needle valve.
Try the cleaning first.
As for the carb soak, you can purchase it at any local auto parts store for approx $22.00

What type of engine oil do I use for my 1999 suzuki savage ls650

Any oil that is JASO MA certified motorcycle oil. 10w-40 for cold climate and 20w-50 for warm climate and highway driving. Do not use any oil that says Energy Conserving on the label. It will shorten the life of the wet clutch and transmission gears. Suzuki makes a reasonably priced full synthetic that will help your bike run cooler and shift easier.

1997 suzuki ls650 savage engine oil type? and how much should i see in site glass to be full?

10-40 probably, check level when the bike is sitting level (the true use of the center stands) you should see oil line across the sight glass but dont fill it more than 1/2 way in the sight glass, it can cause problems.

We have a 1997 savage that the air filter was soaked in oil. what are some of the reasons for this?

Hi barhulin

Firstly, some types of after market filters are designed to be run with oil impregnation.

It is a foam Uni Pod type filter designed to be run soaked in oil.

If it is a paper type Pod, then some of these type can be run with the correct filter oil. I use an aerosol spray oil here in Australia to keep our famous "Bull Dust" out. They are often run dry.
If it has the standard paper type OEM production filter and air box fitted, then it should not have any oil on it.
If it does then it will probably relate to oil getting into the air box from the crankcase breather. First thing to check is that the oil is not over the full mark. You will get excessive misting in the oil if the sump is too full. If the oil level is alright, it may have already blown off the excess. Clean out the air box and filter and take it for a ride and get it nice and hot. Then recheck for oil in the air box. If there is still oil appearing and the level is good, then you may have a crankcase pressure problem from blow by. This is generally indicative of failing compression rings or worn piston/sleeve/rings in combinations. Do a compression test of the engine. Low compression will tell you that soon you may have a top end rebuild on your hands. Happy to answer any other questions you may have,. Cheers
