No, that doesn't sound good. You must have over filled your oil? Either that, or you have bad rings,sticky valve.

Why do i have oil gushing out of my crankcase vent hose?

Sounds like your piston rings are allowing too much blow-by. This can cause excessive amounts of oil to be forced through the vent hose.

They are either worn or if they have been changed the splits in the rings may be lined up rather than staggered 180 deg.

With that amount of oil I would bet they are worn.

2005 1100 vstar oil leakig out of air box

This happens on any bike when it has been filled with too much oil and has been taken on a long run. There is a breather pipe (for air and oil fumes) between the engine and the air filter box. When there is too much oil in the engine it pushes up the pipe into the air box, then drips out where it can. Check oil level properly, ensure bike is level, not on sidestand, read manual on how to check the oil level. If necessary take some out, the easiest way is to do a normal oil change, or repeatedly syringe oil out of the oil filler hole. Then wipe clean the airbox interior and if the air filter is oily change it.

Ive got a motorcycle that was wrecked and know it has white smoke from the pipes

Most people consider white smoke to be oil burning in the engine. But that is not always the case. If the carburetors are pouring too much fuel into the motor that can cause white smoke to pour out of the motor. If oil or antifreeze got into the exhaust system , that could take a few miles to burn out causing white smoke. Lets assume the bike was laying on it's side for a few hours. Did you check your air filter and air box to see if they were full of oil. An overlooked air filter clogged with oil may be all that is causing this issue.

Oil gushes out of air filter hole.

Oil normally comes out of the air filter area a little bit, but over time, once the oil rings start to wear, more and more oil comes out. So you can either have new oil rings replaced, or you can put in a crank ventillation valve in there and it often helps slow down the oil from entering

How much oil does a yamaha yzf r1 2007 take

"most" bikes on average without filter change take anywhere from 2.8 to 3.0 qts. I always purchase 4 quarts because an extra one will always come in handy in the future anyway. First your bike i believe has a sight gauge... First stand the bike upright on a stand or have someone hold it up for you pour in 2 and 1/2 quarts, put fill cap on, start bike, let warm up for about a minute to let the oil settle, then turn off and then start pouring in slowly till it gets to a little above 3/4 full on the sight never want to overfill it could cause engine damage. Now just remember how much oil you put in and that is the approx. amount.

Over filled oil yzf 450

Open the air box,clean it from extra oil,renew the air filter if you have to and without the air box-air filter (or opened) try to start the bike while sraying with a carb cleaner spray through the air box towards the carbs.Don't spray too much.Little bit each time and do not twist the gas grip.Choke it too if you want.It may help.Of course before all that set the oil level to normal.

2006 Yamaha TTR 50E pouring oil out of air cleaner housing

With the oil problem I read on another site that Yamaha did that so that excess oil would be burned up in normal running (but this was usually smaller amounts). Anyways they disconnected the tube going to the air cleaner and had tied up in such a way that any excess oil would land on the chain thus lubricating it. But if you have that much oil coming out it could be that you have put in too much.

Self oiling air filter

great bike but it pisses oil into the air box. Ends up with the luxury of a self oiling chain and a huge mess on the side of the bike. This has been happening since new. Am I putting too much oil in the tank should I only check oil when hot to allow for expansion or is this one of those crappy little problems with this motor that I will just have to live with?aways check oil when it warm and don't overfill it. make sure the air filter stays clean. if the crank's vented to the air box a dirty air filter will allow the crank oil to be pulled into the airbox.,,
