  • Sometimes when taking corners slightly aggressive. lol: its not the first time it happened during the summer months as well i even almost changed the oil pickup tube but the screen was clear. btw mileage is 104k mi. if that makes any difference.

  • I do the whole 5L of the same oil every time I do mine with no issue so far.

  • Being less that .5 Liter over is going to cause no harm what so ever. As long as you aren’t so over filled to cause cavitation from the crank counter weights whipping the oil into a froth.

    What causes rings to gunk up is going too far on an oil changes & carbon build up.

  • Balance shafts or the cam bridge? I know the cam bridge is common, mine was broken but still in place, but I thought the balance shafts ones didn’t have the issue, at least not as common.
