    Blue oil mist on top of the engine

    Ran my 2012 Ultra 300 LX pretty hard the last several times and now there is a blue'ish mist of oil on top of the engine. Checked the engine oil and it's reading full. Don't see any obvious leaks so I'm guessing that it's due to running the ski hard and that the oil must be coming out when it's under load.
    Has anyone else had this happen and if so, what was the cause?

    You do anything under the seat at all? Catch cans, bov filters, intake etc?

    That is what I was thinking also. That coating they put on from the factory. Did it get kind of sticky after it cooled down?

    Fogging Oil? Do you fog your engine after each ride? How much of that "sauce" do you spray in the fogging port?

    Maybe you have a loose intercooler hose and your fogging oil is blowing out under boost?

    I have added the computer chip override from R&D, the K&N air intake kit and the aftermarket blow off valve from R&D as well. Sounds like I may have a loose hose somewhere that is allowing a small amount of oil to leak/spray out. I'll check that out and see if I can find where it's leaking. Thanks for the tip.

    so does the filter kit have a small filter on the BOV ?

    can you see the same oil on the hull near the BOV ?

    Yep sounds like he is using the filter on the bypass valve. Remove the filter and problem solved.

    How does removing the filter on the bypass valve prevent oil from spraying out? I will definitely try it but I'm just wondering why not having a filter would make a difference?
