oil in air box

I went to check and change my stock air filter and noticed a small puddle of oil, do I need to worry about it , I cleaned it out and filter not too dirty but i was going to change it , as my 05 vtx 1300 is at the 12000 mile service.

Re: oil in air box

It is most likely oil&water crud from the crankcase vent and is perfectly normal. You should clean the airbox and the drain tube at least once a year, more so if you ride in cooler temps
