Question about Hartford VR 200X Motorcycles
Great I've got you again
I just posted this comment
I asked as you said it 'backed up and sat in the reservoir'. do you mean the crankcase filler hole?
These engine are notorious for having to have the oil poured in very slowly as it has to go through a very small hole & they can easily overflow, it is normal for the level to go down when placed on side-stand
The oil coming out of the filler hole under pressure (with bubbles) is due to the crankcase pressurising, this is usually caused by one of two things
1. A kink or other restriction in the breather pipe; this can easily be pinched when putting the seat compartment back on or by wrong routing, it goes from the cylinder head to the air-box
2. The piston rings or cylinder bore are extremely worn & therefore let pressurised fuel mixture back into the crankcase
I think no.1 applies
I hope this answer is acceptable
I only meant to ask for clarification but must have posted it as a solution ( which you have rejected )
