Apart again

Well once I start I cant seem to stop.. It all started with a push rod leak this is what it turned into..

Take Exhaust off
New exhaust gaskets
De-grease motor
Wrap pipes and spray silicone
paint heat shields
Oil and filter change
maintenance turbo
Install boost controller
Fix exhaust bracket that mounts to the bag support, weld broke on pipt (no idea how yet)

I think I may have a problem lol

Pushrod leak, huh? I'd like to hear more. Did you have an oring rolled/not seated or what? I'm asking because I think I may have something similar going on. On high speed runs only I'm getting oil blowing back on the rear headpipe. Can't tell for sure where it's coming from, but I'm suspecting one of the pushrod tubes on the rear cylinder.

yeah I believe it is the top O-ring is where the leak is coming from, I am really hoping it is just not seated well I really dont want to take it apart again.

Jay, check your air cleaner first. I just re oiled my filter and went a little heavy . Also run about 1/2 quart low on engine oil. High speed runs will push oil outa the breather.

Yep, I know what you're saying, but I think this is more than that. I do run about 1/2 quart low, and I have my breather vented through some tubing down to a small filter tied low on the frame, so the oil through the breather should be dealt with.

I've got some maintenance to do this weekend so I'll check it all out then.

Thanks guys!

O ring leak at push rod tube on a 2015 103 at 100 miles.
Dealer did a fix in less than an hour and now at 20k still fine.
