Unhappy Think I killed it.

Weelll I don't think that the 650 is supposed to spit exhaust out the oil in spout if ya run it without the cap on.

I turned it on a couple nights ago since I'd left the seat up. thought I'd just charge it that way, but got distracted.
By the time I got back to it there was some coolant on the floor and it had killed.
Not sure if the fan just didn't kick on or if something else or ? The valves were a bit marginal but in spec about 6k miles back. Could be an exhaust valve tightened up a bit too much then burned I dunno.

Regardless I'm trying to figure if it's just a valve or two, the head or if I should just look for a used motor, or even another bike.

My first thought would be to part it (good CVT etc) junk the remainder, & get something else, but it would be kind of a pity, this one does have the fancy cruise control, but does have some orange peel so the cosmetics ain't great (I could sand that out too of course).

Any thoughts on the matter would be appreciated.

I think he said he wants a new ride and needs a good excuse to give the wife. So he needs to know from us if it sounds good. Sound move. ��

Common sense, the least common of the senses.

Well, if you run it with the oil cap off, then the crankcase gasses will go in and out of the oil filler every time the pistons go up and down, at a higher velocity than the intake and exhaust (higher because the hole is smaller than the intake manifold or the exhaust pipe). The air in the crankcase has to go somewhere when the pistons come down, and the easiest way out is the oil filler. And there's oil splashing around, so of course it will spit a bunch of oil out in a mist and drops.

Just put the darn oil cap back on. If you're worried about blow-by, that's not the way to measure it; check the compression with a compression gauge. If the compression is OK and there aren't any new noises, then just fill the coolant back up, burp it and ride.

^ DITTO on what Squeazel said. Just fill the fluids back up and put the caps on correctly and see how it runs. Why were you running it without the oil filler cap on anyway? If you run it without the oil filler cap on, of course oil is going to splash out of it. What are we suppose to make of your post? Just fill up the fluids and put the caps back on. Give us more information about the bike and what you want.
