Honda CRF 450X oil question (2005)

I have been out of the country and am back. My honda was in storage. Bought a new battery. I had done the proper drain the gas etc. I put in new oil. I may have put in too much. I started up and about 1/2 liter drained on the floor from the one of the black hoses below the engine. Why would part of the oil drain out? Would it be that I put too much in or something else. Bike runs great, nothing gummed up.....

I am a newbie and joined today. Thanks

P.S, I am not a mechanic but know a little bit.

These bikes run an absolutely tiny volume of oil so you need to replace it _very_ regularly.
How much oil did you put in?
Did you drain out the old oil first?
Did you hold the bike upright when checking the oil level?

Re: Honda CRF 450X oil question (2005)

I am not sure the exact amount of oil. Yes I drained the oil completely and look at the dip stick when bike was level.

I did notice that it was very full.... My question is if it is too full will it drain out a black hose underneath the motorcycle on to the ground? Is there like an overflow.....

Thanks for your help

They only hold around 700cc from memory, and yes, overfilling it will cause the engine to pump the oil up into the airbox from which it will overflow.
