    98 gp1200 Oil leaking?

    I still have the oil pump running on my gp1200 (no pre-mix) and I am noticing alot of oil present on the plate seperating the air intake and carbs. It may be an issue with the gasket in between, so I wll get a new one, but it also seems like there is alot of oil pooling up in the actual air intake, and then draining out the holes.

    This doesn't seem normal to me, just wanted some other input. Thanks

    Is your oil pump adjusted properly?

    Not sure, but I just read about it on section 3-9 of the service manual so I will check tonight. Thanks

    Yeah, that looks excessive to me. But I'm not exactly sure why its doing that other than the 2 suggestions mentioned (gasket and oil pump adjustment). I do remember my stock air box was pretty slimy but not dripping with oil like that.
