    Oil from some where ?

    I have this oil dripping down the right side of my 08 GP1300, from under the cowling ... normally just every once -n-while. I rode yesterday & when I went to ride today there was actually a small puddle in the wheel well. I removed the seat no oil in hull anywhere ... and the oil injection system is not over full ... where is it coming from? Can there be some sort of blow by out of the throttle body airbox? I am stumped . No power loss & engine seems to be running strong. Any advice would be helpful.

    The oil vent tube runs up under the cowling in that location. Did you by chance overfill it recently or run it rough ocean conditions/deteriorated vent cap... ?

    Im having the same issues with my xlt 1200. down near the oil tank there is a oil vent tube. about an inch up there is a little nipple if you will that is on the side of the tube. the oil gauge says its full but i have brought it out 3 times and still says its full. what happens if you over fill it jim?
