Question about 2000 Harley Davidson FXST Softail Standard
Sounds like you've overfilled the oil. The stick has two marks on it. The top mark is 'FULL HOT" and the lower mark is 'FULL COLD". If you changed the oil filter, you add three quarts of oil. If you did not change the filter, you only put 2.7 quarts in the tank. The next time the cap blows off, as long as the oil level is above the lower mark, do not add anymore oil and see what happens. As long as the oil level is between the marks, do not add oil. Sportsters are notorious for this. People check the oil before they go riding and "top it off". Bad move. As long as the oil is between the lines when cold, ride the bike to warm it up, and then maybe add a bit if it's low. Do not bring it up to the top line even if the engine is warm. About half way is good enough.
