Hey everyone, I just got done doing a search on oil in the air cleaner and found a lot of good info. FYI.. I bought my bike new August of 09 and broke it in just like Glider recommended, it has run great. It has just a little over 6000 miles on it now. As of about 600 miles ago I noticed oil in a/c cover. I came back from one ride and oil had blown down the side of my bike. The bike is still under warranty and I will probably take it to dealer to fix. Everything I have read leads me to believe the oil pump is out of alignment. I find it hard to believe it would be the rings because of the way I broke it in. Oh and it seems to show up more often when I have been running at higher speeds on the highway. Do you all think I am thinking right on this. I just want to have a little knowledge before the dealer tries to buffalo me. Two more questions. Why would it just start now and not earlier and does it hurt it to ride it like this until the end of the riding season or should I try to get it fixed as soon as possible? The only mods I have are K&N filter, V&H Monster ovals, sest. Thanks ahead for all the help.
