water ingestion .. ?
I know theres already loads of threads on this but i took on water ( the dumb ass way ! ) but in my case the oil doesn't appear to have gone "milky" as described by others ,but the level seems to have risen slightly
and is splattered a right mess on inside my hull , i think this maybe come through the catch can breather .
i'm not sure how much water i took on as i was only out for an hour or so and was riding pretty hard all the time and only noticed as i was trying out holeshot just before i left and if i nailed it full it seemed like a real heavy cavitation then i dragged it in noticed the bungs out and an oily mess under the seat
i'm gonna follow skips instructions on it and try and sort it myself but i'm just wonderring why the oil level seems to have risen but not gone milky and why its spluttered everywhere. will do oil changes anyway and hope
there is no engine or s/c damage

Good that you know were to find the info.
Do as the site says and then do some testing.
More then likely your oil is gas filled.
Ya I know it sounds crazy but just go with me on this.
People pulling tubers and riding nuts-to-but usually experience this.
Too much weight or drag causing the engine to work harder and thus more blow by of the piston rings.
The reason it blew out the catch can into the air box is do to the gas thinning the oil. Basically you machine was quietly screaming for help.
Change the oil and FILTER. Pull your inter cooler and follow the inter cooler article about cleaning it.
Put it all back together and don't do that silly mistake again.
Take some pictures and share the experience for others here. Let em know what you did and how you found the info. That will help with the search feature that you obviously used.
Good job and keep us informed.

I was just gonna add that the oil smells a bit gassy and is running off the dipstick wondering what was going on but you knew what has happened before me ! thanks man
those articles are awesome skips and i think its great that someone takes the time out to do that
if i didn't have the catch can breather on i wouldn't have to clear up such a mess but then it would have all gone back into the air box ... which is worst ?

IF you have removed the OEM top hose between airbox and catch can
THAN DO YOUR SELF A BIG FAVOUR PUT IT BACK ON NOW!!!!!
This hose need to be there , No arguing that your filter looks better,
It serves a purpose in A removing some gas blowby fumes
B lubes the charger with oily fumes aswell.
If I have miss read your post then just tell me to shut up and go back under my rock

Exaculy, put the tube from the catch can to the air box back on. Your loosing power and dont even know it. I missed that you said it was comming out the oil can. I was thinking it went into the cooler but your saying it was all inside the hull?
You want negetive crank case pressure, your making positive pressure and possibley cause trouble for yourself.
At full throttle that charger is sucking air in. Having the tube in place allows the charger to suck air in at 5lbs plus. Thats enough to gently evecuate "blow by" biuld up.

some pictures of the culprit and the mess it makes for future reference the oil on the sheet is just what dripped off the stick without even touching it shows how thin it has gone
