check that you are using chain bar oil and not engine oil as that is the main reason for excessive oil usage
make sure that there is the small restriction at the exit point
if that is missing , then that will be your problem
I think it's three quarts but the tank has a dip stick on it. After draining the tank and changing the oil filter, pour three quarts into the tank. The dipstick has two marks on it. Check the level with the bike on the side stand. The upper mark is "FULL HOT" and the lower mark is "FULL COLD". Top the oil level off to the lower mark and recheck once you've ridden the bike.
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.
The warning horn on a V.R.O. system ( variable ratio oilier) warns you of three problems. (1) LOW OIL. means the remote oil tank in the boat is near empty or empty(2) NO OIL. means there is no oil getting to the V.R.O. .problem is, clogged line or the diaphragm in the V.R.O is blown.(3) OVERHEAT. means the engine is overheating. The V.R.O is you lift and pressure pump for fuel and oil. plus it mixes the oil and gas to proper ratio. Three warning, three senders. LOW OIL sender is in the remote oil tank in your boat. NO OIL sender is in the V.R.O.. and the OVERHEAT sender is on one or both cylinder heads of a the engine depending on the year model
