overflow tube

I have an 01 tt600 and when I stop after a semi hard ride oil comes out of the overflow tube. I have been told it is some type of pressure valve but I was wondering if anyone knew exactly what it was?

Oil or antifreeze? You should never get oil out of the drain hose. If you are, then the centrifugal breather valve on the right side of the engine may be screwed up and pumping oil into your airbox. That isn't a good situation for a lot of reasons.

It's a squid thing. You wouldn't understand.

Go soothingly on the grease mud, as there lurks the skid demon.

Take a look inside the airbox. It will have oil in it, not a good situation. You need to replace the centrifugal breather valve on the right side of the engine and clean everything out.

Has the bike been dropped on its right side?

I think it has been dropped but I thought it was the left side. I bought it used. How big of a problem is this?

It makes a big mess in time if not fixed. You won't kill your bike right away, but it will make it run poorly and eventually shorten the engine's life.

+1 to what Will said , I just did this repair to my wife`s TT600, the new centerfugal is redeisign -slightly longer and a tapered end where it goes in to the seal. you`ll need the breather ,seal,and the breather cover gasket. I also sealed(silicon) up the seam down the middle of the air box as oil would drip out of there and run down the engine and make it look like the stator cover was leaking oil.
It`s a real easy fix.
Will it was nice meeting you at the cycle barn:

It sure was! Are you one of the army of Canadians who are headed down to the track the first weekend of September? Last I heard, there were something like 17 riders coming down.

i`ve probably missed somthing but maybe some one else here can point that out, sorry no part numbers
---Take off the side fairings (you can get away with only brake lever side)&seat& disconnect battery
---Unbolt the tank lift gently at the rear and note where all vacuum+ drain and fuel lines go, the fuel lines have colored fittings (red to red..white to white)
to remove the fuel lines push the metal tabs in and gently pull down,un hook the vac+ drain lines lines, and fuel pump wires....take tank off and set carefully aside.Extra hands help with disconnecting the fuel lines.

If you remove the air box ,, note where all the hoses go. You can clean out the air box by removing the air filter and wiping it out gently with a rag.becareful not to damage any sensors in there.
The breather cover is on the brake of the engine with a large black breather hose coming out of it remove this cover(don`t forget to clean your gasket surfaces),on the inside of this cover you see a small inner wheel bearing type seal,, replace this seal.
The centrifugal is that thing with the plastic wheel that goes in to that seal, its held on by an Allen head bolt into the crank unbolt it and you may have to gently pry it off, fit the new centrifugal(align the keyway) and torque to 30NM(easier with bike in gear) , replace gasket, put some clean oil on the breather seal and the centrifugal shaft replace cover torque bolts to 9NM.
put bike back together.
A shop should be able to this in 1 hour if you choose to go that way.
hope this helps
