Wrong forum, thought this was FZS600...

These were mine at 56000km/34800miles:

I left them alone, but I see now that I should probably swap them next time around...
Thanks for your detailed response. I still think it's more than a coincidence that both carbs that are further away and have more distance for the fuel to travel are showing lower levels and both outside carbs with less distance for the fuel to travel are showing higher levels, but I've been wrong before and will be again  :\

I'm wandering about how unburnt fuel would get into the oil? Presumably the mixture would have to be roughly correct and the bike firing on all cylinders or it wouldn't run properly. The only way I can think that this would happen is if one or more valves aren't seating properly allowing the fuel / air mixture to be forced into the engine on the compression stroke !?! I know your line of reasoning is that the floats are letting in too much fuel and dumping it but I can't see that the float bowl overflow would be routed to dump fuel internally rather than externally, that doesn't make sense. Unless of course the same hose gremlin that fitted your redundant coolant circuit hoses for no possible reason routed the overflow hoses incorrectly to an engine breather connection !?!

I take it you've checked the coolant levels to make sure it's not a problem with coolant getting into the engine? But if the bike has been running and the oil level has risen significantly you'd definitely notice the oil emulsifying and probably mayonnaise around the filler cap if coolant was involved.

As Cl1ve2004 says this is an interesting thread.

Have the carbon infills been sold, and if they haven't would they fit an 05 Fazer 1000. Thanks again David.

If your bike is a gen 1 FZS yup they'll fit, if it's a gen 2 FZ1 nope they won't.

Cleaned up the water pipe splitter that sits under the frame, lot of corrosion around the open ends, spun this off with a wire wheel in the drill, got a couple of pinholes now. Used some steelseal to coat the ends up and build up the thin metal. Then a coat of satin black.

I'm still waiting for the shims to turn up so there's not much I can do. I've coated the new gaskets with sealant and stuck them onto one side of the covers, syphoned out the expansion tank, ordered some moly grease and coolant.
