Fantastic! A new problem

Hey guys,
I have a new issue. I have an oil leak above the centre stand but I cannot seem to find where it is coming from.

RBGerson,
Puke can?
Is that the black canister looking thing with a plastic tube going into it?
Can it be cleaned or do I need a new one?
Thank you,
GG

Unhook the tube, unscrew the canister from the frame and just clean it out. Its reusable

I drilled a small hole in mine, close to the top. Lets moisture evaporate faster, without the sploshing on my tire.

It's a "catch basin" for the moisture that develops as the hot air/oil from the motor evap system as it cools. I had a head gasket problem that was making too much moisture and fowling my plugs - I drilled the hole... problem solved. n the old days, before 1983, the gunky water just dripped onto the ground. PETA or the EPA gets cranky about it now. :?
