Now I am totally flumoxed......Decided to go for a ride today but first looked at the sight glass to check my oil level. On the centre stand. Remember the last time I looked after I had added 1 liter it was at the upper level mark.

Well would you believe now it was filling the whole sightglass so I took a long clear flexible plastic tubing inserted it into the filling hole and sucked out 500 ml which brought the level back to the upper level mark again.

Then I went for a nice 200km ride. When I came back from the ride I parked my bike on the centre stand in my garage again and checked the oil level in the sightglass again...wow! how is this possible! the oil was filling the whole sightglass again. So I left the bike to cool down and two hours later looked again and the oil is still filling the entire sightglass. Now I really dont know anymore what to make of it all. Can anybody give an explanation for this?

 

I am creating a shortened version of this post under another heading "The case of the mysterious disappearing and re-appearing oil" in WORKSHOP HELP

Ok simple answer,

 

Oil light is a level, and nothing to do with pressure (when running). If your bike is still running well, no knocks/bangs/rattles then I would say its fine :burnout:

 

 

lesson learned,

 

Enjoy your ride!
