ahhhhhh oil leak?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?

ok so i changed my oil last week to the repsol semi syn. no probs till tonight. i did overfill it a bit to protect while wheeleing. today when i left work i hit a nice wheelie thru 2nd gear found the balance point and it felt great. came home and no probs then i went to my bros house and about 1/5 mile away i did another wheelie landed a bit hard on the front wheel but i didnt notice any probs then either. i went to leave about 30 mins later and went to the 7-11 i noticea a burning smell when i pulled up and when i came out there was 2 puddles under the bike one right under the oil pan bolt and one about 3 inches back. called my bro and he said there was a puddle there too. i had him come out with a flashlight and his truck for justin and we looked it over. its still full of oil and it slowed down leaking alot but it seems to drip a little more while revving the motor up.ide say normally about 1 drip every 8-10 seconds and when revving 1 every 3-5 seconds. i looked and there is a little rash on the underside of the oil pan but the oil is comming from somewhere above it liiks like the filter is on tight and good no double gasket. drain plug is tight and not leaking too.


this is what im thinking for now until tommorow when i tear her a new ass trying to figure this sht out. is there vents on the motor that could have let some oil out when i hit that nice wheelie after work and it sat in a channel or something like that untill the second one? i did a search but i didnt find anything like what im describing. anybody somebody please help me

I think there is a breather hose for both the top and bottom end. Over filled oil might have pushed up the oild pressure and some has come out the hoses. If so it's not a problem.

no need to run extra oil in a 600RR, the sump is in the rear most of the oil pan. you will actually hurt the motor running it over.

Well let me see... Its most likely black, pressed and in the shape of the oil pan. (sorry for the jackass response, but I seriously dont understand the Q. A gasket is a gasket, call honda and order one)
