I ran into an unusual problem with my 109 last week. I picked up the bike on a Thursday and rode it home (about 30 miles) and didn't ride it again till the following Saturday. I rode about 50 miles and topped off the tank and that's when I noticed oil all down the left side of the bike. I moved the bike to check the oil level and when I pulled the dipstick oil came running out of the bike. The bike was on the side stand at the time. I then moved the bike to a dirt field and leaned the bike over to dump out some of the oil. I dumped out quite a bit and then checked the oil level. It showed about 1/4" above the full mark. I figured that was fine and went on my ride. I rode about 140 miles or so and then parked the bike and let it cool for a bit. It was still warm to the touch when I checked it again and this time the oil was just barley touching the dipstick. :-[ I then added a little less then half a quart and got it back to the middle of the dip stick. I decided to add about a cup more and then I ran the bike and checked the oil again. This time the oil was just about to come out the top again. :-\ I called the dealer and they came and picked up the bike. I'll let you know what they say when I get it back.
