    Oil splatter

    I am getting a lot of oil splatter on the front facing one portion of my saddle bag. I cannot seem to locate any leaks anywhere. Are there gaskets that wear out that would cause this.

    to the forums from Arkansas. It would probably help to know what bike you are talking about.

    Is the oil level going down enough to notice ?

    What is "a lot" ? Have you wiped it off good a couple of times to be sure it comes back ??
    Sometimes stuff like that is actually picked up off the road.

    Yes oil level is going down pretty regularly. Only when I'm riding though. No puddles in the garage. And yes I have to wipe down after every ride.

    I think the next step is to clean it up good and then run it in the garage for a few minutes, with the door open, of course and inspect the engine while it is running.
    A really bright light may help, as would a good pair of glasses if you are anywhere near my age.

    Sometimes this is the result of a hose coming loose from the PCV loop.
    Have a look in your air cleaner housing if you haven't already.
    Don't believe everything that you think.
