Oil coming out of air filter area

2202 Views 6 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  Scott S
I recently started noticing small oil puddles under my engine after riding. I traced the "leak" back to my air filter area (the crankcase exhaust tube?). After doing some research, it appears that "blow-by" can cause this to happen. My bike has 20K miles on it, and it started leaking last fall after I had an 18K mile service performed by a Kawasaki dealer. During the service, they adjusted the valves and, of course, replaced the oil. Has anyone had experience with blow-by, and would changing the oil or adjusting the valves cause this to happen for some reason?

too much oil will cause this.
other causes are worn rings etc.
does the bike smoke ? (at idle/decel)
