Have you checked the oil level? If when the motor is cold it is not in the middle of the stick then you have too much oil and that's why it's overflowing.
Take it back to the dealer and have them drain the oil and refill.

I know of 2 things that will do that. First is the oil level, if it's too low the engine will not run. (THIS IS ON SOME MACHINES) The other is a dirty fuel filter.

I just bought a 03 honda 450 and oil comes out of a tube under the motor when started...why is this?Also how do you check engine oil and transmission oil?

Is this a CRF450 single-cylinder off-road bike? If so:

If it's coming out an overflow, it may be overfull. Not sure on that--haven't seen it before.

To check engine/trans, drain, refill with (670cc w/o filter change; 690cc with filter change), start engine, shut off engine, check sight glass on side of engine. If it's low, add oil and repeat start/shutoff/sight glass routine until it's full. Engine and trans share oil.

If it's still pumping oil out the overflow after you're sure it has the correct amount in it, be sure it's oil and not coolant, battery acid, or gasoline (there is a gas overflow tube on the carb for when the float sticks).

12hp brigg & stratton engine gas mixing with oil in engine block..when start engine runs high rpm can not idle & look like gas come out carb air cleaner overflows & flood out & stop engine...

Sounds to me like the float needle valve in the carb is leaking. This will cause fuel to over flow out of carb, and will even get into the engine oil. Check to be sure that float is not got gas in it the can go bad. Also check float adjustment. Check needle and seat very carefully for dirt or wear. Just the slightest bit of dirt or wear can cause it to leak. Hope this helps.

Oil leaking from air filter is there an overflow 2008 suzuki boluvarde 1800

at all engines there is a hose from the engine which goes to the air filter with gases from the carter. Usually, on that hose is mounted a little filter which stop the oil taken by gases. If the filter is full, the oil could get in the air filter.
I recomend to download the manual to identify the parts.
