Comet Oil Loss after 100mile run

Hi Guys,

Went on a run a couple of weekends ago to meet the Vancouver members of the VOC.

Upon getting to the meet my Series C Comet dumped a fair amount of oil. I was talking to the guys there and seemed like it could be residual oil being blown out the breather. The oil level went from above the bridge to below in the oil tank.

It seems to me that the oil came from the primary chain case area and not the breather. I have ridden the bike since on shorter rides to my local village and back 30km or so one way. I have seen not a drop.

I am trying to wrap my head around where the oil might have come from. One idea I had was that it was wet sumping?

Any ideas greatly received.

Cheers,

Eugene.
