    Hi
    I have an 2000 honda XR650 and there has been quite an amount of oil coming from the drain on the air filter cover, which im guessing is coming from the crankcase breather tube that feeds into the air filter. Any ideas what the problem is and how to fix it??

    Did you just change the oil and maybe over filled it?

    no, it is definately not over full as the oil level is below the dipstick and still is coming out the air filter

    they have the same basic set up as Harley , theres either a hose or small filter clogged up, Do you have a service manual ? if not find one it will be one of the best things you'll buy for your bike ,
