Air filter help - normal or not

  1. Howdy,,

    well today i did a simple swap on my air filter and replaced it with another stock one...

    when i opened the filter housing there where some signs of oil...

    its off a honda shadow vt750

    is that normal
    here are some pics i got
    in the first pic you can see the darker colour thats the oil and it leaks to the bottom...

  2. i would suggest a small amount of oil to be a normal thing, especially if the PCV inlet is near the air filter. that is of course assuming your engine has a PCV
  3. most likely perfectly normal, it is just a bit of blowby from your engine. don't worry about it
  4. +1. Not unusual.
  5. cheers guys for your help :)
