After enough miles or high rpm... if you're reasonable and know what you're doing your fine. Also, never overfill a Kaw motor with oil, you can with the Hondas but no-no on Kaws.

Kawasaki motors have a breather tube that run from the crankcase to the airbox. If you overfill the oil it makes them very likely to force oil up this tube and into the airbox, once it hits the airbox it goes into the combustion chambers and hydrolocks the motor. You can bypass this by doing the kleen air mod, but there are still other negatives associated with overfilling.

breather tube is far and separated by a plate from the oil. an extra quart would probably raise the oil level about .5-1 inches, which is still far below the plate that hides the breather opening

I wouldnt worry about it much. I used to wheelie the Sh&t out of my '02 9R and i never once had a problem with that motor. It always ran strong. I could only assume they wouldnt have that problem with the 10

All bikes have breather tubes! and if you have your bike for stunting the negatives are

A. blow the motor because yo did not over fill the oil

or

B. relocate you breather tube and run a bit higher crank case pressure


I will take A, some of my friends have stunted Kawi's for years and never had 1 problem with over filling. all bikes are the same, you need to do something with the over flow Kawi aren't special

^Hahahaha check stuntlife for all the guys blowing 6r motors from hydrolocking. But do what you want it's not that big of a deal when you're only doing 1/4 mile pow pow wheelies anyway.

I'm just saying, different bikes are different. Take a zx6 and overfill it and you will be sorry.
