RT2 2 stroke over flowing ? #1
OK why is my baby leaking 2 stroke oil out of the over flow pipe ?...I have had to stick a stopper in the pipe to stop it dribbling on my carpet :).....
Its not close to the outlet but I'm getting a bit of oil....see picture collecting in the pipe...?
Baffled ? as I'm doing any off-road or jumps lol.

I've seen one over flow from just temperature change. The tank was filled at night when it was cool and next day after setting in the sun it started dripping.

It only does it when riding never parked up ?, almost like the oil is sloshing around so much it's getting up the outlet ?, but that's crazy talk as oil level is down inside the tank now ?. Another weird and wonderful part of owning an RT lol.
