oil out of air box breather tube
 
Hey guys, after a few hard rides it was rip down time, clean everything including the air filter. After I cleaned it, I noticed the tube coming out of the bottom of the air box. I pulled the plug, and was very surprised to see oil come out of it. Before the last ride, I changed my oil and cleaned the air filter as well..I don't think its from over oiling the filter, so now I'm concerned. The oil level is perfect on the dipstick, and doing research the common response is that the rings could be shot? Please don't tell me that..machine runs great, no smoking, nothing..anybody else have this issue?

I forgot to mention I use the k&n spray for the filter. Its a stock filter but that's the only filter oil I could find..

It's normal for some of the oil vapor coming out of the crank case breather to condense in the airbox and settle in low points. A small amount of oil in the airbox is not a problem to be concerned about. A lot of oil is another story.

Just have to keep an eye on it..this thing is really a high maintenance machine isn't it?
