A whole lot of oil

So there was a mixup during the oil change on my roommates bike (01 929) that ended with the bike having about 7 quarts of oil in it for around 100 miles. He complained about it running bad which is how we figured out we both put oil in the bike. So once it was drained and refilled it is kind of sputtering at idle and is very lightly spitting oil from the exhaust. Anyone have any idea if any permanent damage could have been done or if it could just be oil burning off?

Re: A whole lot of oil

Overfilled with oil and pressure in in the crankcase, you're lucky you didn't blow some gaskets. Oil from the exhaust means that the oil has seeped past the piston rings and into the combustion chamber. Replace the spark plugs and put a bottle of fuel injection cleaner in the fuel tank. Good luck!

Re: A whole lot of oil

You've probably got oil in the crankcase vents as well, which means you'll probably want to open the airbox as well and clean that out.

If the bike isn't braking properly, you don't start by rebuilding the engine.
