Thats a high performance Pirelli racing slick! My motoz tractionator is in the garage waiting for me to swap it on. I also picked up two sweet tire irons and extra tubes to carry in the back pack. I wouldn't want to blow a front tire and have to be rescued out of the woods........

Should I be worried? Small pool of oil behind my air filter on the 310.

First time cleaning and re oiling, found this.





Paper towels and putting it all back together for now.

If the engine crankcase vent is routed back to the rubber manifold where you see that oil, then yes.

Iirc, most pcv systems route the ventilation downstream of the air filter, so a little bit of oil on that side of the intake is normal.

this time of year, noon is when you should be finishing up IMO. I may be able to do a weekday next week Wed - Fri, if I decide not to do the VT ride that Sunday following.

Go! You'll love it. Riding in VT is just too much fun. I'd consider joining you, but I'll be in Colorado with MrT10x, happily destroying his "running like a top" DRZ.
