Looking at a 2000 V STAR 1100. it has oil in the airbox. Why ?


Hi, Mark oil level readings are taken when the engine has reached normal operating temperature and the usual suspects are:
1. Overfilled oil tank dipstick reading should at or below full.
2. If the sight glass is full you are running to much oil.
3. Excessive blowby caused by worn out piston rings.
4. Piston rings never properly seated.
5. Faulty breather valve or system.
6. Pinched or clogged breather line/hose.
7. Clogged or failed oil filter.
8. Contaminated oil dirt-rust-water etc.
9. Excessive oil foaming.
10. Wrong oil type not designed for your bike.

I buy air compressor but how I put the oil


Of course, if this came with a manual.....it should clearly indicate the fill orifice. If it is like the one pictured, The end opposite the handle, where the metal end of the pump is exposed on top of the tank, has a filler hole with a filler cap pushed or threaded into it. Twist this off and add the oil until you see it rise to the half-way point on the sight glass. On brand new units, the filler cap will be taped with a small caution tag, warning you not to start the unit without first adding oil. Most units use a high performance, non-foaming, full synthetic 20-50w oil. If there is no sight glass, the filler cap will have a fill level indicator. Do not overfill!

I want to SeaFoam my 2000 Chevy Silverado, How much SeaFoam goes in the gas tank and ind the brake hose or oil tank?


I have been using sea foam for years. A little goes a long way. I usually use a couple of cap fulls at fill up. The same goes for the oil when changing it. I don't use sea foam for the brake system. Only DOT3 brake fluid from a sealed container unless otherwise specified.

It doesn,t turn over at all has new spark plug bowl is full gas lines are good pull cord is good help


Remove spark plug and and ensure there is actually a spark when the machine is cranked.
Ensure air filter is clean. Foam elements can be washed with hot water and detergent, squeezed dry in a cloth and re-oiled with a teaspoon of engine oil spread through the foam. Paper elements can be cleaned with compressed air blown from the inside of the filter but ideally should be replaced.
Check fuel lines aren't kinked or blocked restricting fuel flow.
Ensure fuel filter isn't dirty. This is probably located at the end of the fuel line in the tank.
Remove the air filter and check the choke plate closes ok when choke is turned on.
Air locks in the fuel lines will also cause this symptom. These can be caused by running the machine with low fuel level in the tank and cutting upside down or at a sharp angle.
To remedy this keep pressing the primer button i present until it feels spongy and fills with fuel.

We ran out of oil yesterday and have now filled tank this morning. Left hand red light is on bottom plinth but when pressed goes off for a few seconds and you can here system start up but then goes out. ...


An oil burner has a high pressure pump on the burner-- can you locate the pump?
(There will be a copper oil line coming into one part of the pump...)
Do you see a little 'Bleeder valve'-- usually right on top-- It takes about a 1/4" (or 5/16" open-end wrench to access it. Air has to be bled from this fitting, until oil comes out.

In order for air to bleed OUT-- the pump has to be running

You can reduce the mess, by slipping a small hose on the bleeder valve, and letting the air, then foam, and then all oil, run into a little can. (Much like bleeding the brakes on your car..)
You may have to cycle the burner a few times, as it times out, from running, but not having JUST OIL, to pump. (These pumps do very poorly, pumping air and oil mixture!-- It must be ALL OIL!)

When you have all oil, tighten the bleeder valve-- Now you will get oil pressure, and you should get ignition. Doyou hear the spark of the ignition?

Tell us more-- and we'll go to the next step

I just bought 01 sportster 1200 and the oil tank is filled with light brown milky oil that smells like gas 1st harley help please


Light brown milky oil that smells like gas is not good. Drain the oil from the tank and refill it with three quarts of fresh oil. Remove the oil filter and take the spark plugs out of the engine. Using the starter spin the engine over for about 20 seconds without the new filter on the engine. Then wait about five minutes and do it again. The reason for the short spin time and the longer wait is that you don't want to burn up your starter. Keep doing this until you get fresh clean oil coming out of the engine. Put the new filter on and replace the spark plugs. Now,top off the oil tank to the lower line on the dipstick with the bike on it's side stand. The lower line on the stick is "FULL COLD" and the upper line is "FULL HOT". Do not overfill or you'll wind up with a mess. Then fire the engine and let it run for a while. Then turn the engine off and let it sit. If you look in the oil tank immediately after shutting the engine down, the oil will look light brown due to the foaming on top of the oil. Allow the foam to disapate and it should look good.

Now, if gasoline contaminated your engine oil, it may have contaminated your primary oil as well. I'd change that too. Drain the oil and add one quart of specified type of oil.

Good Luck

I have just got a 2005 883 hd sportster please tell me how many quarts of oil and the type of oil i need. How to drain and fill oil


The drain hose attaches to the frame at the bottom rear. Make sure the bike is at running temp before draining the oil. I use 20-50 mobile 1 full syn, 3 quarts. You must put 4 ozs in the filter to prime the system. After you drain the oil make sure you look in the oil tank before you refill it there is a tendency not to drain all of the old oil. If it dosen't all drain use a turkey baster to **** out as much of the old oil as you can. When you refill the tank you want the oil to come about midway between the lines on the dip stick. If you fill it to the top line you will get a lot of blow by out of your air filter.

Runs sluggish at start up. It will cough, sputter, chug for about a minute(it seems). If you can get the rpm's up, it will sort of walk out of it. We've recently replaced the spark plug wires, oil, fuel...


  • Possible vacuum line related, suspect problem was related to EGR valve, as this was replaced Nov 07. Problem came back this past weekend. noted vacuum line to EGR valve had no vacuum. I removed device-located top front side of the engine near serpentine belt, noted foam filter inside-cleaned filter reassembled and problem cleared. I believe this device (part of emissions System, investigating official name) may be the culprit. This device has two vacuum lines coming in and 1 electrical connection obove the serpentine belt. with the foam filter removed I was able to stall out the engine by placing my finger over the orfice (care-full of the fan belt). This must be an electrical solenoid that goes intermittent.
