    My bike is upgraded to stage one. A little oil is seaping out where the breather connects to the cylinder. What causes this?

    If you are talking about where the backing plate meets the cylinder, there is an "O" ring in the rear of the backing plate in a recess that is supposed to seal it up. Either the "O" ring is missing/broken or the bolt is not tight.

    ok the upgrade only about 600 miles old. Just noticed the oil today. I'll see if the bolts are tight. Thank You
