Then I ran it for about ten minutes while oil kept slobbering out. how long does it take for the all the oil to get out of the crankcase?
It can take awhile to clear. It all depends on your rpm. Point is, this "problem" has been around for decades. Run her, check the level after a few minutes and don't worry. These bikes pump,a lot less oil then most people realize.

Thanks for the info, I'll just carefully monitor it.
