R6 overfilled with Oil? Now what?!

Ok, so, personally, I have never done this before and run the bike. BUT, a friend of a friend apparently has an 05 R6 that he overfilled with oil, and then he went and rode it.

Bike is in mint condition, but smoked nice and white out of the exhaust pipe.

Bike runs good. No other issues.

In order to get the white smoke to stop, I assume that he needs to get the oil level back down to normal. Is the recommended action in this case to drain the oil, change the filter, and refill to the PROPER level this time?

Am I missing anything?

What other damage could have been done, or perhaps other things does he need to check?

NOTE: He lives in NY, so sending him to a local guru we can't do.

If you dump it, make sure you are using a perfectly clean pan. Not sure why you would need to change the filter though.

If you ain't with us, then it's just bad news.

if you don't have a baster type tool or somethign like a Fork oil adjustment tool http://www.revzilla.com/product/prog...FYaDQgodyX4AGA

I'd just drain it in a clean contain and refill, or drain it and put in new oil.

Or slide the forks up to compensate.

I would crack the drain plug open a bit as if you were burping it and let some oil out then refill to the correct spot if needed

go time traveler style and go back in time, fuck his grandma, then shoot forward in time and then fuck his mom. Then return back to present state and call him a the product of two incest whores and hes your son and show video of you plowing the both members of his family. .

Oh yeah forgot to mention make sure to do it before the oil gets hot cause it burns like no other

you can put a clear 1/8 or so inch piece of tubing into the oil fill opening and siphon the oil out.

Yeah just bleed the drain into a clean pan and adjust the level.


Ride it a while and see if it cleans up ..... it may have some oil pushed here or there
and smoke a little. In extreme cases you can bend rods and things if the oil hydro-locks
the motor ..... but it's unusual.

I'd drain and re-fill, that way you can put the correct amount in other then guessing after opening drain plug. Oil is cheap...

+1, just crack it a bit, let some drain out, check oil level, repeat if needed

I always made it a habit too to start the bike up for 15-20 seconds, turn it off, let the oil settle, and then check the level so its accurate.

No point in wasting 4+ quarts of oil if you're just gonna refill it. Just drain whatever needs to be drained out

Drain extra out, and run it til it clears up, assuming you don't want to be a nutty ass OCD mechanic overthinker type, then you can change your plugs and clean out air filter and airbox. Overfilling with oil will send some of it into the airbox and into the engine producing white smoke. No biggie.

With nowhere for the oil to go it could damage the motor. If he went out and rode it hard or forced it to rev the motor may be damaged like Tom said. The oil has to go somewhere so some seals may be blown. Also, the crank case breather goes to the airbox. You may want to pull the tank and airfilter and clean the airbox out because I'm sure it's saturated with oil in there if its way over filled and was riden. The neighbor kids mini bike wouldn't even start because it was over filled. The kick starter wouldn't even let him turn the motor over. He had it filled to the brim. If you were to force trying to turn it over or ride it things get bent and broken.

The oil is coming up through the breather into the airbox and into the engine, at a slow rate, which is enough to burn off while running safely. If there is so much that it drips into the combustion chamber while not running, and then you start the bike with a lot of oil already in the chamber, then yes, things will get bent.

just unscrew the filter and drain whats in that a few times. Itll keep you from dumping all the oil.
