Small amount of oil from the exhaust

Recommended Posts

So ive been wondering if this is normal, the bike has been doing it since day one but no harm in asking right :-D
 
So there is some oil coming out of the exhaust, it's not a lot but if i hold my hand infront and rev it there is a little bit of spray on my hand.
After a day of riding the area right below the exhaust exit (standard exhaust) has some oil on it, would geuss it's a handfull of drops in total.
 
So anyone else have this or should i consult the dealer?
It's my first bike so im unsure of whats normal :-D

When I had the stock exhaust on the bike, dark-colored spooge would leave drops just below the exhaust exit.
To me, seemed like murky water (condensation) collecting within the muffler.
Normal.

My vote would also go towards condensate. If it is oil, you would have deposits on the plugs I would imagine.

Mine still does it after 3,300 miles. Nothing I am worried about though.

Come on guys - high school chemistry.
 
2x O2 + hydrocarbon ( CH4) + energy (spark) = CO2 + 2x H2O
 
Between all the condensed water vapor and some acids that come from burning gas with some sulfur content, exhaust systems rust from the inside out
