Oil in my airbox!

Ah, where do i begin? I bought a 2005 gsxr 600 in non working condition. Replaced some parts and got her up and running. Need fuel pump. New spark plugs. Took the injectors to be cleaned. Bought a new fuel rail. New brake system. Whole 9 yards of maintenence. I just finished adjusting my tps sensor (thanks to a member here) and as i got on the freeway I could not rev past 9k. Cruised home couldn't get past 5k... I get home and take everything apart. As I lift the air box cover my filter is soaked with oil and there were puddles of oil. I have spare filters so cleaned all the oil with some towels and put a new filter. Rode around for 15 mins and same issue. Help!

Sounds lime possibly too much oil in the crankcase.
Are you checking the oil with the bike straight up and down or on the side stand?
It needs to be straight up and down.

Had a simular issue recently with a buddy's bike I know yours is fuel injected, but he has a 97 gsxr 600 "carbs" petcock was leaking filling up the cylinders working it's way down past the rings and mixing in with the oil causing it to fill the air box and puddle everywhere ! I don't think it can be leaking past the injectors but make sure there's no fuel in the oil, check and make sure it's at the correct level, if so you might want to do a compression check on each cylinder and make sure your not getting any leak down might possibly be blow by allowing oil to get past the rings and then venting back up into the air box

Yea that's what's throwing me off i didn't have this problem before I did the oil change.... Im really tempted to just drain my oil. But if I do drain it how would I know if there is gas. Will it separate or sit on top of the oil?

Yes, it will separate, you will also see an iridescent coloring in sunlight, if you light a match and it catches on fire, you'll know for sure lol.

Not making fun of your situation btw, hopefully it isn't an in depth problem.

That and the oil won't be near as thick a consistency between gas and oil and no doubt you will be able to smell the gas in the oil

Thanks. If was really upsetting me coming home on 59 today and being so restricted. Also during city driving I had to shift through my gears instantly to 6th to get any type of throttle reaction

Clean the sensor in the airbox, probably covered in oil. Seen this on other fuel injected bikes.

When you drained the oil did you find any signs of contamination?
When it died on you did the air box fill with oil again?
If so and the oil level s correct you have a lot of blow by from the rings and the increased crankcase pressure is forcing oil into the air box from the breather tube.
Run a quick compression test and post your numbers.

No sir. The oil was just very thin. Small scent of gas on it too. Yea the air box filled with oil again. I will have to do that right after work

Although a week ago I gunned it through a couple gears and it was blowing white smoke for about a good 20 seconds... But didn't experience problems after that.. Not immediately
