Okay, i've had my 9 for a couple years, heavily modified and i know about the over filling mistake of the oil.

But! What would be the reason for the oil puking out the left side when its been fine all summer long and suddenly it starts. Its been happening for the past couple weeks. Took the left side out, cleaned things up and before you knew it, when for a ride, she's spewing oil from the left side. What the hell is happening now? I find it very strange that it just starts puking oil after riding all summer with no problems.

Any ideas?

same reason it would any other time, it's over filled. Sometimes it takes weeks for it to show up. Sometimes you have to run at high revs for awhile and then it'll start

PUCKING

How old is the oil, I think they also start pucking after a while because the consistency of oil changes as it gets older. :eek:

The oil change was done early in the season, around April. Been running fine for 5 months then suddenly, puking.

Did you ride it hard for an extended amount of time?....I know the times mine did it...was on my trip to flagstaff...riding 85-95 from Oklahoma city to Amarillo TX....I also had it happen this summer while riding with some guys on sport bikes pushing the same type speeds and faster for about an hour...otherwise it never does it...
