    Oil over-fill

    Okay, I finally did it.  I over-filled the crank case by about 1/3 to 1/2 litre.  My oil extractor can't get deep enough into the sump to siphon out some of the oil.  Other than dropping the very expensive fully synthetic fresh oil is there an easier way to extract some of the oil that anybody knows of?

    Drain it into a clean container then put it back in the bike.

    But somebody probably knows about that.   :001:

    Turkey Baster with some thin fuel line slide up over  the end.
    Any kind of small thin tubing will work. 5 or 6" works the best

    I've overfilled in the past. All I did was put on a latex glove, loosened the oil drain plug and let some drain out into an oil pan. Solved.

    Any of the above are good. Welcome randysvoice. Don't let it happen again, the admin here has banned people for less. :>)

    Have you tried leaning the bike right over on that side? Get a mate or two to hold the bike at an angle, I'd be surprised if the oil level didn't come up closer to the filler cap. :002:
