I Ride:
Oil and Fuel in Air Filter Housing ???


I am new to this so go easy!

My cousin bought a 2015 FE 450 on Saturday, it had done 50 miles from new, anyways drives it back (less than 300 miles now) all good.

Next day spotted it had been leaking, so he's started looking and took out the air filter and it looks like a mix of oil and fuel in the housing.

Any ideas???

It was also a bit sluggish to start the next day if that's related?

He may have over oil the filter? Or use wrong oil? Try reoiling it with name brand oil. Don't know about the gas though?

Or it came through the breather hose. Check the engine oil and see how it looks, both oil level and if it has any fuel in it.
