Something's Wrong!

Yesterday i got a chance to ride my bike and after I got back I put the bike in the center stand to check the oil and it was slightly higher than the level it normally stays on. The bike was in the same spot that I always put the bike to check the oil so I don't think it was the location that could have caused the problem. I also checked the antifreeze and it was as blue as the sky so I dont think the head gasket has a leak. Anyone know why the oil level just increased by itself?

Dude, nobody really lives here on this forum anymore so dont be surprised if you dont get many responses. I dont know why the oil level would jump like that. Did you check it RIGHT after you got done riding? If so, maybe try checking when its dead cold as in hasnt been ridden yet today, then check it at the same time next ride, right before its been ridden at all that day. Thats when i check mine. Wish i could help more.

Ninja, if it's still high after sitting, go ahead and drain some or all out. Wait a while and see if you get fluid seperation (you know, like vinegar and oil.) If you dont see anything, take it to the KW shop and see if they can figure it out. The fluid is coming from somewhere and the only other place is the cooling system if you bike is liquid cooling.
Good luck.
Bill

So I checked the oil again this morning and it was back at the same level it always was. So I dont know what could have caused it because I always check the oil at the same spot in the garage.
