2011 Kawasaki Vulcan 1700 Nomad excessive oil consumption

Hi, Mike oil consumption is usually caused by a worn out engine with lots of mileage, new engines can also have excessive oil consumption due to improper break in procedures or faulty parts. The general rule of thumb is anything more than 1 quart of oil consumed in 1,000 miles or 1 liter in 1,500 kilometers means it's time for a top end overhaul. The usual suspects are:
1. Piston rings not properly seated (new engines)
2. Piston rings worn past service limits.
3. Damaged cylinder wall or piston.
4. Valves and guides worn past service limits.
5. Valve seals worn out, crushed or no longer attached.
6. Cracked cylinder head.
7. Head gasket failure.
8. Pinched or blocked crankcase breather hose.

I have a kawasaki KX250 motorcycle and there is oil in the radiator.

Check your engine and transmission oil for anti freeze. Also check to make sure your engine breather is not plugged. You probably have a leaking water pump seal , that is allowing oil to get into your anti freeze through the transmission. Normally when this happens the anti freeze goes into the transmission oil.
If there is no anti freeze in the lower engine or transmission , then the oil is leaking from a high pressure oil line going to the head to the cooling chambers filled with anti freeze. This means you probably need to replace your head gasket on the motor. While you have the head off check to make sure that the head has not warped. If it is warped it may have to be machined back to flat or replaced.

How much engine oil does a 94 HONDA CR 250 2 stroke hold?

nearly evey bike has oil capacity on clutch cover near the oil filler, should say 1500cc or whatever. with a two stroke it's only gearbox oil so not much in yours probably a couple of pints, four strokes hols a lot more, always check level are filling and running for a few seconds, some oil galleries won't fill just by pouring in at the filler. you should have a dip stick or an oil level screw in the casing.

Are you sure it's not gas mixed with oil? Sounds like the carbs are overflowing and filling the crankcase with a gas/oil mix. The rubber hose at the head should be for exhaust blow-by fume recirculation.

Think i need fluid in forks of my balius H reg. 1987 i think!

I am not familiar with the Kawasaki Balius model, but nearly all front motorcycle forks have two small hex head fill plugs at the top of the forks. The fluid is usually a very pure mineral oil of some sort, but use only the fluid recommended in the owners manual. You can add fluid using a squeeze bottle or a large syringe, just make sure everything is spotlessly clean. If you continue to loose fluid, you will need to rebuild the forks. The job is fairly straightforward IF you can locate a rebuild kit. Once again, make sure everything is spotless or you will be doing it again soon. If you found this suggestion helpful, please don't forget to rate it.
