I have 6000 trouble free miles on it and now have traded up to a 850 xp
keeping the 500 because it is mint
but last year on a 500 mile trip with allot dust got it home was going to change oil and air filter I had oil in the air box
so my ? is why did it end up in the air box
could not have come thru carb
so it had to have come thru breather tube I am assuming

thanks in advance
Mike

Was it overfilled with oil, did gas dilute the oil bringing the level up, did you tip the machine over, a lot of reasons for that issue, was it a great deal of oil or just something that could have been pulled into the engine from running a slightly worn engine?
