Ok so I have put 1900mi (it has 11,900 total) on the V so far and last week I noticed that there is a little oil leaking from the rear left corner of the valve cover which eventually will drip down onto the belt guard. So I read my owners manual which is for a 2004 model but I think the process for checking oil would be the same for an 02 as it would be for an 04. In the manual it says that if you check the oil when the bike is cold the oil level should be in the middle of the hash marks, not actually read full. However when I did so the thing reads all the way to the FULL line. Could this cause the oil to push out of the valve cover like it is?? If so the stealer must have over filled it because I have never touched it until now.
