Re: Engine oil Over flow??
Something I wasn't aware of until I started playing with Ducatis.....I used to fill the new oil filter with oil before installing. But, Ducati says to only fill it half way. Something to do with a full filter possibly causing cavitation and/or an air lock in the oil system. I realize it's Ducati and they can be a little weird but now I only fill the filters half way whether I was working on my LT or someone elses bike. FWIW.
