    Default Oil blowing out of fill spout

    Anyone have this issue ? Not a lot, cap was on tight. This seemed to occur quite a while after my oil change (800 + miles). Wasn't over filled. Dealer will be checking it. (2016)

    I had a similar problem and I thought that the dipstick was screwed on tight - it wasn't.

    Possible bad O ring? If it's an F3, there have been a few.

    It was tight, has happened more than once. Also had someone else check it after me to be safe.
    Hadn't heard about the F 3 issue, that's what I was thinking but it seemed too simple.

    Default Over filled by a couple of ounces

    Happens under hard acceleration. Suck out about 6 ounces and see what happens.

    You could be over filled. Make sure you follow the exact steps for checking engine oil. If not done correctly, you will get a false reading which will make you think the oil level is low when it actually is full.

    It's a pain but I'm going by their exact procedure to check oil level. Have not added any oil, dealer did the last service.

    There is no guarantee all the technicians at a dealership are up to date on the engine oil capacity of the 1330 engine. I know for a fact -- 1/2 qt overfilled at my 28K service.

    otherwise be a vulgar brawl.

    I believe the Can Am oil change kit has 1.5 Gallons (6 Qts) of oil. The 1330 engine calls for 4.7L or 5.0 Quarts of oil. Please confirm my understanding your self. But if your pimply faced technician just dumped all the oil in the kit in your bike then you will be over filled....
    But, again, go through the proper oil level check to verify what you have. The good thing is that, once the level is correct, the 1330 engine is known to not loose any oil between changes. Let us know how you make out......
