Default oil level with 6" lift

Hi everyone,
Just wondering about the oil level in my g9, it has a 6" lift and I'm wondering if there is any special consideration needed because of the increased angle of the swing arm. I noticed some of you make brackets to lower swing arm. Is that required? Also, big thanks to Skoal for air box.

Default Re: oil level with 6" lift

Sorry if this is what is called high jacking a thread but it seems relevant to me .
I am dealing with smoking g2. It does have a 6” lift and I have read above that too much oil can cause it to smoke .
I just added 1 qt. Of royal purple 10w30.
The strange thing is that the cart smokes after idling for about 4 minutes .
It burns clean at start up .
Is it possible that the used muffler I bought has deposits in it that when heated up smoke ?
Or do you think that I need to remove some oil?
Additionally, forgive my ignorance with motors. I located what appeared to me to be. Pcv valve which was gummed up with white oily film. The lines going to it were also clogged so I cleaned up everything and the one way pcv valve seems to work.
I am unsure of the carts history. It runs like a champ but I would like to stop the smoking before camping season starts!
Any advice is certainly appreciated .
Thx in advance
Chris

It very well could be the used muffler get a hot fire going and toss it into the fire if it has oil in it it will burn it off
