Just started smoking

5 posts in this topic

Last time i rode i lost my oil cap on the ironhead. When i got home i dug out a backup and added a quart of oil. Today was the first time i got to ride it in weeks, when i got to a light after 20+ miles i noticed the smoke. My question is if i have over filled the tank could it cuase the smoke? I doubt it but thought i might ask. Smoke is most definitely coming from exhaust.

If its overfull enough that the oil runs down the vent line how can the return pump ever empty the crankcase? If the crankcase is never empty how can it not smoke?

in thinking about it I only notice it smoking after braking. the oil would be sloshing forward and have nowhere to go but down vent. plus I looked in the tank and its really full..i swear the biggest problem with my bike is me. lol

Drain the crankcase then drain the tank down to the full mark.
