Default Supercharger leaking

Follow-up on overfilling crankcase.
Is the supercharger lubrication linked to the crankcase lubrication - can overfilling the crankcase cause leakage from the supercharger?

No. They are not connected.
Overfilling the crankcase runs the risk of the crank churning up your oil and creating froth that could reduce your lubricating ability and sap your power.
It could also, if excessive, vapourize into your PVC system.
