My friend just bought a 1985 goldwing aspencade l.e. the stator was supposed to be out but after checking it out it seems to be ok but it seems to have started making oil I know it's not really but my oil level has increased and is now at the top of the check tube help.

First, lets get the model straight. Do you mean LTD, the gold, fuel injected model?

High oil level on the fours is usually a sign of fuel leaking, through the carbs, into the crankcase. Never heard of an injected model doing that, but...

Anyway, the fuel smell should be obvious if you open the filler cap and sniff.

Come on fellas, take it easy, itcler the fella the prob has communting.

I typed a reply earlier, but deleted it before posting because I'm just not sure what he's talking about, or he's a banned member being purposely obtuse. :unsure:

If the oil is overflowing without oil having been added, it's either fuel or coolant.

If coolant drips into the sump slowly enough, it will settle to the bottom and push the oil up and out, without making the oil milky. Running the bike will show that problem quickly enough, and put a hurt on moving parts as the water provides no lubrication.

If it's fuel, it will more readily mix with the oil and should smell like fuel.

I suggest draining the oil from the bike. Leave the drain plug out. Check the fuel tank and the radiator coolant levels. Top them off if necessary, then watch the drain hole - if it's filling as fast as you say, you'll see fuel or coolant coming out soon enough.

Hey Bull, you need to simplify and proof read your work before you post.
We're having a tough time making sense of it.
Thank you.

His first post was a lot more readable. Gas in the oil is not an uncommon issue the the fours so I'd hate to ban him if he really needs some help.

You do know that to check oil you put the bike on the center stand (not side stand), then unscrew the dip stick, pull it out & wipe clean, then reinsert but do not thread it in. Just insert until threads meat, then pull it out & read level.

English may not be his native language.
He is using a Broadband Permanent IP address from:
Eldoret, Uasin Gishu County, Kenya

Perhaps, and my apologies if that's true, but if I was a banned member with the mentality of a 13 year old, I'd be using a VPN too.
