Hi, my name is ***** ***** I'll be working with you today.
The number one reason for this is a slightly over-filled oil tank. It may have seemed fine with the stock filter but will show up with the more open K&N filter in the new one.
When cold the oil level should be no higher than halfway between full and add on the cold section of the dipstick. It is checked with the bike on the kickstand and the dipstick pushed all the way in.
Check this and let me know what you find.
Thanks, P.J.

How much oil should a street glidr take with filter
Expert:  P.J. replied 2 years ago.
Okay, that's too much oil. It's common.
It takes about 3.5 quarts but it can vary a little based on what drains out.
It's tough to get out but it needs to be drained down to halfway between that full and add mark.
