    Oil Coming Out the Exhaust?

    Rolled the ATC185 today and oil started coming out of the exhaust. It landed upside down and about a minute later i noticed i thin steady stream coming out. Do I just need to check it and top it off or something more?

    Those three wheelers can roll and just as easily ball up you too Jon. Lucky there wasn't a steady stream of Jon leaking out. honda-atc-185-10.jpg

    How much oil leaked out would you estimate? A long lasting trickle or did it lessen and go away?

    Maybe a cup of oil, I haven't started it since. I was going up a hill and it died so i jumped off to the side and it rolled back down while i watched. Bounced off a tree landed upside down and only damage was broken front brake lever. Thats a nice one! Mine has the little trunk thing and no rack, oh and a clarke tank. No suspension either its an '80. Am I safe to start it if the oil is back to normal level.

    I believe you have nothing to worry about... It's not unusual for oil to travel through the crankcase breather into the intake & out the exhaust. Usually creating great plooms of smoke, kind of like the "Bat Mobile" smokescreen. Pull your plug, spray a little wd40 down the spark plug hole, pull the starter about a dozen times, install a new plug, top off oil, run bike for 5 to 10 min, it should clear up.

    One more thing, check your air filter, it could be saturated with crankcase oil, & will need to be cleaned if that's the case. m.

    That is a great picture of the aftermath with Jon's upside down ATC. Did it shed the fire extinguisher, which is a handy safety item to have around?

    Good news Jon. But did anyone ever see you when you ran into the pig?
