On a 03 YZ450F is it Normal for small amount of oil to drip out of that black Exhaust Hose coming from the Head after it has been ridden and sat for awhile? :)

It's a breather hose and yes it's normal. Mine does the same thing.... Kind of like the old Harley's - MARKING IT'S TURF! :)

Seeing how we are on the subject.....
I was wondering what color the drip is one everyone else's bike?

Mine has been a little grey, but only after some hard rides. I have checked the coolant and that is up to par.
