Its got Rabies!
Did you remember there are 2 O rings around the filter? One about .5" dia, the other about 2" dia.
Lay the bike on its' side (no spill method) and take the filter cover and filter out again. Make sure they are there and didn't get sucked into the engine.
Did you get water mixed in with the oil? That would get it to foam. DAMHIK.
If it is foaming, I would drain and put new oil in. Start fresh.
I wish The OP would get back in this conversation....
An update sure would be nice.
His bike locked up in a bad neighborhood.
Draining, and filling to listed capacity without measuring is never a good idea. This is how places like Jiffylube always overfill your car.
Correct, also a dry sump engine will not foam the oil as the crank is not splashing about in it.
A overfill will let the crank hit the oil and windage it which will flow the same but not lubricate like its suppose to.
What do you do? Fill it partially, warm the engine, check the oil, and add some more? I've only done that when the capacity was unknown. If it says 3.75 qt, I'm pouring in 3.75 qt.
I drain frame and pan, change filter, the dump in 2 quarts. The extra 200ml our whatever burns off sob enough anyway.
That's actually exactly how I do it.
And do you find that the amount of oil required to fill your engine varies?
No. It does not vary. But I do end up filling up with less than the listed capacity.
No,the cover wont fit with the filter in backwards.
Some truly useless answers being given here.
Variable valve timing,on a DRZ? Maybe the turbo is loose as well.
If its truly hot you have a problem,if your just thinking its hot cause your worried bout it,who knows. Overfilled?
The owners manual is totally clear on how to check oil on a DRZ. If the dipstick shows oil at the bottom of the grid on the stick it needs maybe 1/4 of a quart. Very easy to think it needs a half quart or more when it doesnt. Ive been through this on a DRZ I had.
More idiocy,how would the o-ring get sucked into the engine?
He checked out because of the clown style answers being given to his question.
Jiffylube has changed the oil in my car many times without once overfilling it.
Are you sure they ALWAYS overfill?
