    When I ride the bike, I will have a coating of oil mist on my left pant leg. I do not think its from the crankcase vent as thats on the right side and has a filter element. On the left rear cylinder, there is oil covering the top of the cylinder and down the rear side.

    I cant seem to where this oil mist is coming from. Any ideas?

    the valve cover screws washers, gaskets and half moon shaped plugs. any one of these.just replace them all. you will have clean pants again.

    Make sure you're not overfilling the crankcase as that will cause oil to get into the airbox and leak out and down the back. No more then 1/2-2/3 up the window when help upright.
