    I have a new tiger cub (4hours). When on rough terrain I get hydro oil splashing out of the cap vent hole. Is this normal ? If so is there anything I can do to stop it.

    Make sure the metal cylinder is there inside the fluid box, hanging by the rim. That keeps splash down. It is normal to get some oil coming out of the cap after I flush the system. I would rather have too much oil than too little. I mow rough terrain with my tiger too. Your dealer has put excess oil in and it will correct itself by coming out of the cap. I hope the cap does not have anything wrong with it. It does breathe to go with the hot and cold changes.

    Is the oil level suppose to be at 3", if so I'm at 3 1/4 from top. The metal cylinder is in place also.
