Q: I have a 1978 Kawasaki KZ650 that I got in trade for a surfboard. The bike didn't run when I brought it home, but after some cleaning, tinkering, and rebuilding, I got it started. I removed the stock airbox and put on pod filters; I haven't rejetted the carbs yet. I rode it about 30 miles to break it in and get a feel for how it ran. When I got back I noticed the engine was very low on oil. On further examination I found it was leaking badly out of the crankcase vent, where I attached about 8 inches of hose capped with a filter. I didn't think that much oil could come out of the crankcase like that. What's happening?
