Oil spitting from exhaust

Recommended Posts

I'm not sure if this is a common issue with our bikes but I noticed this from day one. From the factory with 0 miles to now (2100 miles). My oil levels have always been spot on. I can't say how much is actually coming out but I notice the level is lowering.

It's water...it happens from the exhaust cooling down and trapping moisture...it's totally normal...

Stock exhaust has a catalytic converter, which converts hydrocarbons into water.

Ok thanks! Make me feel so much better. Anyone notice anything after getting new exhaust? Got an Akra system coming.

I have not noticed it on my Leo Vince exhaust...only on the stock exhaust...

That's because aftermarket exhausts typically don't use a catalytic converter, thereby eliminating the cause.

Normal. Spray a tab of WD40 onto a rag and iot rubs off nicely.

Well I found a way to fix the issue. I just installed an Akrapovic system.

I noticed after installing my Akrapovic carbon pipe that my bike wasn't a wolf in sheep's clothing any more. It's got some bark now!
