    Oil Level?

    Just rode my new second hand 1130 tnt home, to find oil blowing back through the air box. Checked the oil level when cold, and it was on the full mark with the bike on the side stand and way over when upright. Is this correct or has the previous owner overfilled the engine?

    Way too much. Should be between the marks upright. Drain it off and refill simples.



    Oh and welcome to the fold me old china. Enjoy the bike.

    Check the other stuff too. Sounds like the previous owner was a nodder.

    Welcome Tootoot.

    What model have you got and do you have any pictures.

    Thanks Chaps

    It's a 2011 tnt sport, 1 owner 2000 miles.
    The owner claimed to have his own engineering company, so you'd think he'd know how much oil to put in a bike!
    Lovely grungy motor but the throttle is a bit snatchy around town?! Can this be smoothed out?

    I did have Kurt Cobain In mind when you said grungy As for the snatch throttle .... A remap may well sort it.
