I had a masive amount of oil leaking on the left air intake. I realize when I got home all the left side of the bike was cover on oil ( from intake all the way to the swing arm) and a line of oil behind me on street and driveway. Any idea what is the problem here?

If it left a trail of oil I would say it must be overfilled. Have you recently added or had the oil changed?

I would bet it's over full. Sometimes it takes a while to puke...even a month. Some people have noticed puking after long high rev runs. I would change the oil again and measure what comes out. maybe even let it drain over night.

OK, i have the same thing. Can you drain some oil out without doing a complete oil change?
So how do you know how much to drain out? If it is showing over full on the dip stick I would say yes. But if it's not showing over full you're just guessing. Drain it and start over. When I fill after a change I start with 3.3 or so quarts. Ride a day and check, maybe add a little (4 oz) if not showing on the stick. But that's just me.

Change the oil and measure it. Only way to really diagnose the problem. Its only 30 dollars in oil. What if its not the oil and its something else? Wanna do more damage? It clearly says 3400ml on the engine cover. Thats 3.4 bottles of suzuki oil since its measured metric. It has a nice guage on the side to be able to tell.

I have never heard of anyone leaving a trail of oil. I would check the oil filter, oil pan, both drain plugs to make sure that there is no damage to them. Did you pull both drain plugs when you changed your oil? Did you change your filter? How much oil did you put back in?

3400ml if you don't change the oil filter,,,and the Suzuki oil is only 946ml per bottle, you're short changing yourself by 200ml,,witch it would make any difference,,,,

Were you also running it harder than usual for an extended time?? I had something similar happen to me after running 75-85 for a long time. (hours) with a couple of 90-100mph bursts Didnt leak oil before that...and hasnt since...even though I have run 70-75 for a good while since then.

:agree: This is valid data that hes giving above. Mine puked for the first time after extended high speeds. Never before that and my oil was NOT overfilled. I did the catch can mod and no problems since!

I searched for "Oil Puke" and got the below hits - -

you could just use a foil pan under the filter remove filter replace then run bike 2 min let it sit for an hour or over night do the cold check on the side stand add as you need aim for the hash marks.

Puking

Had the same thing happen to my 07 M. I say take the advice and drain -- measure-- refill -- measure-- ride and take inventory. Do not forget to take in account the amount of oil left in the filter.

Ride on !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:bigthumbsup:

The oil was coming out from the left side intake, the filter was all flooded on oil.
