Default Oil Level Over Full From Where???

Pulling my hair out trying to figure this out. I picked up an 01 V92C last summer with about 900 miles on it. I did the first oil change when i got it and rode it very little - only about 300 miles total and put it away for the winter.

Got it out to ride this season a couple months ago, checked the level when on the stand and it was fine. Today I decided I better check the oil level again. This time I straddled the bike so it was level. When I removed the dipstick oil came pouring out so I grabbed a foil pan to catch it and in total about 3 quarts of oil came pouring out. I know I didn't put 9 quarts of oil in the bike last season. Where could it be coming from? It smelled a little like fuel so wondering if that could be it. The bike idles rough - stalling at times - so I run it with the fast idle a little advanced. Could that be dumping fuel into the cylinders?

Thanks for the help.

If the oil level was reading good on the stick while the bike was on the stand, then it was over full. Of course, you found that out when oil started running out lol. It is possible that you have an injector stuck, that would cause it to run rough and dump fuel. I would change the oil and keep an eye on it often.

If the bike is running rough, I would check the throttle body boot and the vacuum caps on the throttle body. May also want to run some seafoam through the next couple tanks of gas and ride it like you stole it. With the bike being 15 yrs old with such low miles I'm sure it's had more than a couple tanks of bad gas, could've gummed up something in the sending unit. Let us know what you find

yes ... Ghost ... agree with all points given ... also if a Vic is overfilled the bike burning off the excess oil ... NOT GOOD ...

Thanks for the tips. I'm changing the oil this weekend (running T6) and will try to chase down any leaks in the caps or throttle body boot. I've seen your recommendations on that Ghost - should've done that last season. I've run one tank of fuel with the seafoam as well. Bike runs fine except for the stalling issue at low idle. The advanced position on the fast idle worked great - kicked it up about 100 rpm - hope that's not dumping fuel into the cylinders.

to check oil your bike has to be straight up and down.
with bike straight up unscrew dip stick.
wipe off now screw dip stick back in and then unscrew to get reading.

click English and read about your bike

NEVER CHECK OIL ON SIDE STAND OR KICK STAND

If you're not sure if your tb boot is leaking or not, spray some carb cleaner on it while the bike is running. If the idle speed picks up, your boot is leaking.

The fast idle won't dump fuel in the engine, it's the same as holding the throttle open a little. Let us know what you find, any questions don't hesitate to ask

I changed the oil giving it time to full drain. I put back in 6 quarts of T6 - checked when vertical (used the 2x4 trick under the kickstand). Started it and let it warm up. Shut it down, let it sit for a few and checked again. Looked to be in the acceptable range. I'm monitoring it to see if it fills up again.

I checked the tb boot and vacuum caps. Sprayed carb cleaner on the boot and all the rubber caps but nothing affected the idle. I'm running some Marvel Mystery Oil through the tank now. Rode it hard as well - seems to idle a little better. Still not confident it's going to stay running when I pull up to the light. The plugs are original but the bike only has about 1400 miles on it now. I might replace those as well. Any recommendations on plugs?

Thanks for all the suggestions. Now if I can only find some pipes to give it a better sound. Stock pipes suck.

But it sounds like a moped. The air sucking in the filter has more attitude than the sound coming out of the pipes.
