I picked up my 06XB9SX after getting the oil changed and when I got it home and checked the oil,it was filled up to the top of the dipstick threads! I don't mean the top of the dipstick, I mean the threads on the swingarm. Way overfilled. Now one of the fittings for the oil cooler is leaking! I left a message with the service department, but nothing can be done till at least Thursday and I want to ride the bike without oil blowing back onto the bike and muffler. Any suggestions on what I can do about the leak in the meantime? Thanks!

get a turkey baster or something similar and suck the appropriate amount of oil outa the swingarm (ain't it fun to say THAT?)
take a wrench (preferable a tube fitting wrench) and make certain the coller fitting isn't loose -- if it was me, I'd remove it completely, clean up the threads, get some teflon tape of similar from the auto store, and assemble per spec
