Hi all I have just noticed a few drips of oil at the end of the head breather pipe on my 2001 WR426 is this bad or just one of those things. When the bike is running there is a bit of a flow of air out of the pipe, it just drips when the engine is off and it's on it's stand.

Or do what I did. Take the hose, route it up and put a filter on it. No more drips.
