Oil in Air Cleaner Compartment

Post by GBKid »



Can anyone tell me what causes oil to collect inside the air cleaner compartment. I suspect some is normal because of crankcase ventilation. I included a photo and want to know if this amount is normal or excessive.

Have you checked your crankcase breather hoses lately?

Measurable loss of oil from the crankcase?

If no, then I wouldn't worry.
