You could try;
Get the right oil filter for the bike. Put it up to the different plates on the engine, Problably the right side. The plate would be a larger than the filter, but not to much larger. Take the plate off, and see if there's a filter there. Just replace it. The are problably arrows than indicate the filter direction. Be sure to look for, and replace the o-ring.

Some compression from the engine is getting past the rings and into the gearbox. With the compression comes some unburned fuel. The fuel mixes with the gearbox oil and increases the oil level in the gearbox. Now the "oil-gas" level is very close to the vent hose on the top of the gearbox. Remember that compression going into the gearbox? It now carries bits of oil-gas into the vent hose. Where does the vent hose vent to? The air box. The "low cost-getting by" remedy is to do an oil change, clean the air box, install a clean air filter and then do more frequent oil changes in the future. The proper fix is to do an expensive top end job on the engine. Please rate my answer. Thanks.

It could be as simple as a faulty sender unit, maybe old oil or more expensively worn bearings.

I don't think so -no. That seat is model-specific.

Just visit a Kawasaki dealer and get the stock chain the bike came with. The designers of the bike carefully determine what chain will best handle what the engine can put out . I never try to out-engineer the engineers.

A service manual is a valuable tool with an aging bike. I suggest the dealer/mfr. or Clymer books. In the meantime, go to the library reference section...646 stacks should have what you need.
