Oil in air box

Last night while installing a scorpio alarm I took a look in my air box and there is some oil from the crank case vent in the box. Has anyone else seen this? Is this ok? It was a small amount and I wiped it up so I can recheck in a few days.

Re: Oil in air box

my understanding is that this is caused by overfilling the crank case.

Re: Oil in air box

Its an accumulation of oil mist from the crankcase. A small amount of piston blow-by pushes it in there. Eventually, it will affect the breathability of your air filter.

Re: Oil in air box

I ran the vent hose to a breather filter instead of airbox. There was some black deposits on throtle butterflies and bores that i'm guessing came from breather oil.
