    2005 GP1300R Oil Leak?

    I just got a 2005 GP1300R and I noticed oil leaking down the right side of the ski. I whipped it off and 2 days later it was there again. I took the side panel off and saw an oil vent tube under it just to the right of the glove box. The oil seemed to be coming from this tube. Every time I wipe it clean it comes back a day or two later. My question is, is this normal or could there be something wrong somewhere? It hasn't been out yet this year and I only started it up maybe twice since I got it. Thanks to all for helping with this question.

    You are overfilling the oil tank. It has happened before.

    I haven't touch the gas or oil yet. So you think it should stop after I run it for a day? And how much oil should you generally put in. I never had a 2 stroke before and don't want to f it up.

    Overfilled with oil. That's OK. To verify remove the seat, take a flashlight and shine it towards the oil tank. You will see the tank full. Sometimes when people fill the oil tank or winterize the ski's they fill the oil tank full and the feed tube. Resulting in a little oil spillage from the vent line.

    I noticed your signature. You may want to consider adding some oil to your gas since you are running the oil pump and have an aftermarket head, and I am assuming an efi controller, etc. Read this.

    +1..it gets on the inside of the pannel and runs down and out for what seems like months if you overfill or go out fully filled to the cap not the top of bottle

    No Problem, you can fill it almost completely full. Just use the flashlight to look at the oil tank when you fill and make sure your not overfilling up the fill tube.
