High Oil Level, Fuel in Oil?
Short version: My oil level is constantly too high even after draining some oil out, waiting overnight to recheck, etc. When I opened the oil filler plug, I can smell fuel. What am I dealing with?
Long version: I have a '09 ZX6R that I purchased in November with 4,696 mi. The first thing I did was change the oil & filter as per the service manual. A few months ago, I noticed the oil level was too high so I drained some oil out. Just this month, I suspected the same thing - that the oil level was once again too high. Since I needed to take my bike in for a general service and new tires anyway, I had them take a look at it and they leveled it once again. I checked the level before I left the service department and it was good. This morning, I noticed that the level was high once again. I opened the oil filler plug and smell fuel. Feeling very disheartened right now as I had a similar problem with my last bike which ended up turning into a complete disaster. What could cause this?
