Ultima 113 puking oil out of breathers

I've got an ULTIMA 113 with about 2k in miles on it. Haven't started it in about 4 months. Started it the other day and oil is pouring out the breathers.
What's going on with it?

Has it done it before? Did it eventually stop?
Might be a venting problem. Is your crank case vent open?
I thought it's not uncommon for the engines to spit out oil from the crank case vent initially after a long in-operation- but it ceases in minutes. NOt sure about the head breathers.

Also could be a draining problem in rocker boxes- easy to check.

Old style evo 3 piece rocker boxes tend to spit oil out of breathers, due to flaws of the design in the umbrella valve chambers[ oil would pool in them, thee was a simple fix]. I think later models, 2 piece rocker boxes , including Ultima collect and drain oil back to the bottom better.

don't worry too much, it sounds like it has ''Sumped'',.... oil passing the check valve in the oil pump & filling the cases,.... it should stop once the oil has returned to the oil tank.
it can be cured usually by changing the ball & spring or by gently tapping the ball down onto the seat, re-seating it .then a new ball should work.
a common problem with Harleys.
also can happen if you had checked your oil level ,thought it was low & you then topped it up nor realising the rest of it was in the motor,... if you did you may find it too full & the need to drain some off and re-establish a normal level
running the motor every week when not being used will also stop sumping unless the ball is stuck way open dirt & crud in it...

Its common for EVOs to wet sump if they sit for a peroid of time. My hotrod does it a lot. I have an S&S case and I pull the drain plug in the case to drain the oil from the crank case when it sits for over a couple of weeks without being ran. Otherwise it will try to push the excess oil in the crankcase out through the path of least resistance.

If you do search for wet sump there should be several threads here regarding it

With the Ultima you can vent at the head and the crankcase. I would use both and vent the crankcase to the ground.

Thanks guys. I shut it down pretty quick because the was coming out pretty good. I'll let it run a bit. I didn't top it off.

I am suspecting oil filters lately. Getting harder to find evo filters, compared to more restrictive twin cam filters which supposedly bung up evo oil in crankcase. Anyone else find similar?

Mine not only sumps, but if you put too much oil in it , it will spit it out until it reaches a level it likes, and it will stop..
