oil gushing from crankcase on my 1988 yamaha virago 250

hi! i recently bought a 1988 yamaha virago 250. i have the vent hose from the crankcase unhooked and when i start the bike oil gushes out of the hose! when i say gush i mean gush! like a heart beating and everytime it beats a big stream shoots out. it emptied my crankcase in about 20 seconds! bike runs good, no foulded plugs and dont smoke. no, its not overfilled with oil! can someone please help? i dont see how blow-by could cause it that bad!

This doesn't belong in Tech Articles.

I've moved it to XV250

I received five PMs from you this evening about me moving this to the XV250 forum. It was moved three and a half years ago !

My move had nothing to do with the lack of answers you got, and you did not start this thread in XV250 as you think, you posted this in Tech Articles, I moved it so you WOULD get answers !

One more thing, before I typed this message, this thread had 268 views, so don’t tell me it’s my fault.
