I have a 98 Shadow 1100 that I did the oil on in the next day it bog down on me when I shut it off it hasn't started back up since then I took the dipstick out and oil just poured out of the side casing so I'm wondering if overfilling oil is what's causing it to not run. Any suggestions?

Does it smell like gas?
Did you fill the oil after the oil change with the bike held straight up ?
They only hold about 3 quarts so how much did you put in?

How many quarts did you put back in to refill it?

Isn't it amazing that a guy with a problem asks a question, we try to give the best direction to solve it, and he never responds.
Maybe embarrassment after finding out what a stupid mistake he made. But we all do that too !
