I only have 700 miles on the bike. I think it was a combination of an overfill and blowby.TonyA said:Hello G81 Can Cycle , How many miles to accumulate that much oil ? It doesn't take long if there is too much oil I suppose. Tony .
What area do you live. PM me if you don't want it public. I'm with ALLSTATE too.Britfan60 said:Fellas. Thanks for the heads up on the air filter. My mechanical skills are pretty lame, so I'll have the dealer check for me next visit. My oil level has been holding a little less than one third up btw the two lines. I've just ordered the shop manual from Norton, so that will help a bit. As for the insurance, I feel so lucky. I'm paying 230 per year for the Norton and an additional 40 for the old Triumph Bonnie. If I had a racer, it would be a different story. Allstate.
Hello Der , So far 430 ml of oil have been removed from the air box in 585 miles driven total . The oil level started at the full top mark on the oil stick. Now it is right at or just below the low mark. Is this where it will stop discharging ? If the oil goes below the end of the stick , I guess I will need a longer stick !der said:Yesterday evening was the first time I've had a chance to give the bike a run out since starting this thread, it ran a little rough at first (I guess some of the gunge was still in the injectors) coughed a little then ran as sweet as it ever did. Had a fine old run around the hills with a guy on a Bonneville, big grin time
Stopped for a coffee at Betws y Coed and saw a 961SE, turns out to be the 22nd bike out of the factory, the guy had done around 16k miles without trouble. He was the first guy to get the short pipes, Norton said he could have them for free if he gave them feedback from trialing them. Interesting little chat it was.... and yes his airbox drain pipe has always had a slight drip from new.
