I cleaned it out, but after the next ride it was back
Stripped off all the hoses and cleaned them again, also took off cam cover but no sign of it in there
It is also in the starter clutch housing which I have cleaned out
Changed the oil, but the oil is not contaminated
Just read in another thread that it could be air mixed in with the oil residue giving the appearance of milky oil.
Pulling the pipe off with the engine running there sure is a a lot of air movement in those pipes
Don't know where the water could be coming from
I haven't done any water crossings
I haven't washed the bike recently (been using it on the street)
I am not losing any coolant
Anybody else finding this - very easy to check, just pull the pipe of the starter clutch housing and you will see it in the rubber pipe if you have it
Sure would be comforting to know if this is normal
On a side note - why is the hose routed into the bottom of the air box
Surely this would allow dusty / dirty air to be sucked into the pipes and ultimately into the engine oil, or even worse water, if the airbox had a bit of water in the bottom of it
I was think of routing it into the now redundant AIS outlet which is after the air filter, on top of the intake boot - good or bad idea?
Any help appreciated
