I think what your talking about is the crankcase breather tube. which will blow off a little oil every time you ride.
No worries.
I have over 2000 miles on my 426 and it blows off the same today as the day I bought it.

I think the only hill to climb in Bowling Green is at the college. Right?

Something else that's cool... :blush:If you wreck and your bike stays running and is wheel side up, you'll get to see your oil burbling out that hose too.
