major issue with my bike! oil in the coolant res **Resolved Oil pump &Water Cooler**

ok so i did a cct replace on friday, i thought everything went great but then on sunday i come out to oil on garage floor. i look and i have no oil so i pull fairings off and find oil in my res? and cause of oil on ground was coolant overflow. if that mean i blew my head gasket? was there something i did durring cct replace that could have caused it? its my only source of transportation so i prob put 200 miles on new cct over the weekend.

upon further research i believe my oil cooler pushed the oil to my coolant reservoir. but i fear my engine overheated even though i didn't feel any diff on the ride home in the clutch or anything. im afraid i blew my head gasket in the overheating? or maybe the head gasket is causing the leak not sure.

Do you have coolant in your radiator or water wetter + distilled water?

Check your oil site level glass, is the oil the normal color or milky?

You mentioned your bike over heated? How got did it get? How long?

If you ran it got you probably blew your head gasket but you would not be likely to get a lot of oil in your exhaust. But possible.

If your cct install was messed up there's a possibility your cam sprocket could jump a tooth causing all sorts of problems.

coolant in radiator, and no oil in site glass. the funny thing is because cct is hydraulic i was very aware of both oil and coolant levels after repair. checked both several times that weekend. not sure it overheated but im guessing. not sure how much of my ride home was with no oil. its a 2005 cbr 600rr by the way.

i don't believe my timing is messed up as bike runs fine only reason i noticed was oil on floor when backing out of garage next morning. so i killed engine as soon as i saw oil on garage floor. is it retarded to buy new oil cooler, drain both oil and coolant and flush cooling system. then see if it happens again?

the CCT isn't really hydraulic. it's a spring with a non return ratchet. I don't think there's any way that changing the CCT could cause the problem you now have.

if your engine overheated you would have had indication of this on the gauge panel.

a new cooler will cost you so you would be better off finding out if it is damaged before you purchase another. why do you think this is the cause? are you sure the oil came out of the coolant bottle?

yes oil is still in coolant bottle filled to the brim. plus oil and coolant spewed out the breather hose for coolant res. i reason i think its the oil cooler is because if it was just my head gasket i would have coolant in my oil. at least that's what I'm reading on the internet.
no indication on dash of overheating that i noticed on ride home. but who knows

I would drain everything, remove coolant tank and clean it, then refill everything. If it mixes again, take the diagnostics a step further.

hmm ok but if it did that once it will do it again....... it isn't going to fix itself.

I would have thought you'd be better off testing the oil cooler before you put another x dollars worth of oil and coolant on the floor.

when you changed the CCT you didn't disconnect any hoses did you?

no i didn't disconnect any hoses i followed nicos write up here on the forums. only thing i did was turned the engine counter clockwise as opposed to clockwise when finding top dead center. but a buddy of mine said that was no prob. it ran great for a few hundred miles then this. like i said i checked fluid levels through out Friday and Saturday. how do i check water cooler? pull off and take somewhere?

what did turning my engine ccw as opposed to cw do? hope its not too bad. seems weird that it took 200 miles to affect my fluids though.

it did nothing.

if you remove the cooler and fill the water side with water you might be able to see if it comes over into the oil side. not sure what you'd do if you don't see it though.
