Oil on air filter

After washing the bike today took it for spin. When I stopped i noticed some oil from the filter. What if anything would cause that?

It is a fairly normal occurrence if you run the oil close to the top of the full mark especially if you ride it hard. If this is the case try running with the oil about halfway down the full marks and see if that helps. I run mine between 1/2 and 1/4 full on the dipstick.

Also if you have re-oiled a Stage 1 A/F recently it can be normal to see some oil drip then as well.

As long as it is not excessive it is probably nothing to worry about.

+1 on the oil level. I only put 3 qts in mine on oil changes.

Be careful, STUPID doesn’t care what direction it comes at you from!!!
